Christmas Village: Embracing Natural Beauty

When it comes to Christmas decorating, one trend that has been making waves is Nordic Glam. Natural wooden elements have always been a staple in holiday decor, but this year, they’re taking a more refined turn.

You can bring this trend into your home by incorporating smooth wooden beads, charming wooden houses, and a touch of Christmas greenery and understated florals. The key here is to add a touch of glamour to the natural colour palette. Our take on this decorating trend sees inspiration drawn from quaint Nordic houses and captures the essence of a winter forest with rich colours and textures.

But what truly sets this trendy style apart is the opportunity it offers to infuse a touch of glamour into a natural colour palette. Imagine strategically placed glittery and sequined flowers in lush greens and neutral tones, exuding a distinct Nordic charm. To elevate the allure, you’ll discover antique gold and champagne accents delicately scattered throughout, providing a subtle yet captivating touch of glamour.
