It's been a magic year for Skandivis, and I want to thank all of you who took the time to stop by my blog, your support means the world to me ♥
It's now time to close shop kick back and enjoy a much needed Christmas break with my family in Denmark! I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas! ♥
For me Christmas is all about connecting with nature and using what's out there to decorate. With the help of a bit of clay, moss and a few pine cones it's possible to make the most beautiful Scandinavian inspired decorations!
I'm happy to say that December has been very busy here atSkandivis! Thankfully it seems like lots of you are still in love with the Nordic lifestyle and are buying Scandinavian Christmas presents. I wonder what the gifts will look like all wrapped up on Christmas day?
These wooden Christmas decorations are the work of the Finnish born designer Hanna Francis and are on sale in my shop! The decorations look great as they are, but can of course be painted in any colour you fancy. I liked my birds so much, that I couldn't bare to take them down after Christmas so I went ahead and painted them with blackboard paint and have been hanging in my windows ever since!
The days are short in Scandinavia and people just love candle light as it creates a cosy atmosphere and keeps the darkness at bay. Whether it's Morning or evening you are certain to find a candle on the table in most homes.
These lovely lighthouses are available from the Danish company Kähler.
I've just come across this bright and very clever designed children's furniture just perfect for creative play. The designers behind Small design are Anja Lykke og Eglantine Charrier both graduates from the Danish Design School.
I admire creative people and I'm always curious to learn how they live and what their workspaces look like, BUT rarely do I come across a spot as fabulous as the studio of the Danish artist Tenka Gammelgaard and it has left me
With Halloween just a hop skip and a jump away, the Danish design house, Normann Copenhagen has given their flagship store, not a scary but a pretty edgy Halloween makeover! How do you like your pumpkin? Dip dyed or orange?
Hop over to Normann Cph here for instruction on how to get the look.
I just love the cool and functional design of the Big Ledge shelf! It's small and just perfect for anyone looking to furnish a "shoebox"... Big Ledge is Danish designed and available from Linde&Linde DK
This beautiful house is the home of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen one of the founders of the talented Norm Architects in Copenhagen.The result is a very successful renovation project and now fabulous family home.
There's lots and lots to swoon over in this home but I'm particularly taken by the polished concrete flooring that flows so easily through-out the house.
