One of the best ways how we can set the mood for the holidays is by sprucing up our homes in a manner that achieves that cushy, festive feel. Although when thinking of festive decorations, one can feel a little obliged to stick to a red and green colour scheme and traditional ornaments, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get creative and garnish your home with stylish decorations that still embody the holiday spirit.

While we continue wanting to deck the halls with classics such as the pine tree, stockings and wreaths, it’s good to give a little update on our festive decorations each year. The holiday season is all about warmth, joy and ultimate cosiness, and that’s exactly what we want our decorations to epitomise as well. Below, you’ll find Vogue Scandinavia’s edit on the most stylish holiday decorations to adorn your home with this year.


Amaranthine Blooms

Green eucalyptus and snowberry wreath

A wreath is a classic festive ornament, setting the holiday mood straight from the front door. This year, we're choosing a wreath that is beautifully put together with green eucalyptus and snowberries.


Pols Potten

Apple Tree candle holder

Via Farfetch

A stunning candle holder is the perfect centrepiece for festive celebrations. Not only is the Apple Tree candle holder by Pols Potten beautifully crafted, it also holds six candles to light up a room in that soft, golden glow.


Crate and Barrell

Cable knit Christmas stocking

The Christmas stocking is a lovely, long-established festive tradition. This year, we're looking to hang up the adorable cable knit stocking in festive red, perfect to be filled up with delightful little stocking stuffers.



Candle set

Candles are definitely one of the best decorations for creating that cosy and warm atmosphere. Coloured swirl candles in wintery blues and green not only deliver the mood but also act as beautiful decorative pieces.



Fringed plaid wool blanket

Via Matchesfashion

Nothing brings warm and comfort in a way that a soft luxurious blanket does, right? The plaid wool blanket by Gucci is assured to keep us warm and snug throughout the holidays.



Ketunmarja mug

The Ketunmarja collection from Finnish design house Marimekko is great for festive decorations, ranging from table cloths to plates and oven mittens. Our pick from the collection are the tea mugs, perfect to be filled with warming glögg, our favourite Scandi winter drink.


Les Ottomans

Ikat silk-velvet cushion

Swap your usual cushions with these festive silk-velvet ones from Les Ottomans, and you'll be guaranteed to instantly inject that warm holiday spirit into the room.



Glass ball ornaments

Iittala is a Finnish design house particularly known for their fine glassware, and these mouth-blown Christmas tree baubles ranging in shades of light pink to deep red are an elegant ornament to garnish the pine tree with.


Reflections Copenhagen

Windsor crystal glass set

Via Matchesfashion

Set the festive dinner table this year with unique glassware. The crystal glasses from Reflections Copenhagen are a beautiful add to the place setting and will surely make the holiday cocktails taste even better.


Moda Operandi

Molecot porcelain dinner plate

These hand-painted porcelain plates are another stylish element for the festive dinner table setting. To match with the golden rims, pair the plates with golden cutlery.


Svenskt Tenn

Josef Frank Advent Star

We've seen beautiful advent stars lighting up windows for a while already, however it's not late to put one up now. Our pick this year is a little different than the classic white one - this advent star designed by Josef Frank has stunning pattern on it and will create a gentle red light.


Ralph Lauren

Wentworth gold 5-piece place setting

The holiday season needs a bit of glamour and gold, and this cutlery set from Ralph Lauren will do just that. Use these cutleries in any table setting and you'll elevate the set up to a new, luxurious level.


Georg Jensen

Christmas tree star

The Christmas tree star is an essential element when decorating the pine tree, and the golden star from Georg Jensen gives the most elegant finishing touch.




Lucia's Day is celebrated on the 13th of December in Sweden, Norway and the Swedish speaking parts of Finland. This Lucia train ornament is a lovely way to bring some light and Lucia Day celebration into our homes.


Länna Möbler

Advent candelabra

Just like advent stars, a myriad of advent candelabras can be spotted on almost every window this time of year in Sweden, bringing festive feel to the dark evenings. This stylish anthracite grey candelabra is guaranteed to look good on your window.



Skultuna x Mumin

What could be a better way to playfully decorate your home for the holidays than these adorable gold plated Mumin figurines? Collect all the characters or give as a delightful gift to a fan of the iconic Finnish fairy tale figures.
