Home Décor Ideas: Nordic Narnia, Christmas 2017

Each year we wait with baited breath to see what our creative team will come up with for our Christmas shoot, and this year certainly hasn’t failed to impress. We present to you our Nordic Narnia; a woodland-themed, white Christmas. This stunning shot was inspired by a scandi Christmas, complete with wooden twigs and trees, fluffy reindeer rug, warm wool fabric and handmade, paper mache stars.

Take a step inside our fantasy woodland and have a closer look at some of the details that make this décor so effective. Here we show you how to achieve this look in your own homes, whether it's for Christmas or the whole year round.

Ferdinand mid-century chair

This dramatic scandi woodland wallpaper is called Burning Leaves, Kensington Gardens Mural, and can be purchased from Surface View in your customised size.

Our compact, Ferdinand chair has been upholstered in a designer fabric from Isle Mill in Scotland. This fluffy, Orkney fabric in champagne is made from 98% wool. Scandi inspired interiors are full of natural materials, reflecting on the outside space. This natural textured fabric is perfect for a scandi-themed, winter interior look, as it’s cosy and warm.

handmade ceramic mug

Handmade ceramic mugs and crockery highlight scandi craftsmanship and the use of natural materials. The rougher, unpolished edges have a more relaxed look than machine-made pottery, giving a lovely homemade feel. This is the perfect mug to enjoy a hot cup of cocoa in the run-up to Christmas.

wool and cashmere throw

Drape soft wool and cashmere blankets over your furniture to entice people to curl up and snuggle down. This beautiful throw is our new Cashmere Ambleside, made from 95% lambswool and 5% cashmere, and is the ideal accessory for lazy afternoon naps.

mirrored glass candles

To create this relaxed mood, use candles for a soft glowing light. These mirrored, glass candles and tea lights cast dramatic shadows in fireplaces and make the space appear warm and inviting.

Stash piles of twigs and branches in metal baskets inside fireplaces, for a nod to a rustic, real fire. The handy basket means they’re ready to move on Christmas Eve for the arrival of Father Christmas and all his presents.

hanging stars

Our clever stylist made these handcrafted stars from modelling clay, which she rubbed between two pieces of linen to give the surfaces texture. They were then threaded and knotted onto a piece of natural string, before hanging against these moody, dark painted walls.

We hope you enjoy creating a scandi, Nordic Narnia-style Christmas of your own.
