Its Boxing Day here in Sydney and I have just got back from watching the Sydney to Hobart race start, followed by a lazy day on the beach. As a Swedish girl in Australia I still struggle to come to terms with having Christmas in the middle of hot summer. For me, Christmas is the ultimate season for that Nordic aesthetic I love, decorated through our homes and also in getting creative with the gift wrapping and cards.
For a peek at this years inspiration, take a look at some of my Nordic Christmas pins on Pinterest here .
I think a great way to recap the last few days of celebrations is to summaries my top 5 favorite Christmas presents. ( most of which are still on my wish list! )
1. Organic skin and haircare from Grown Alchemist.
I was given a set of these beautiful products made in Australia from 100% organic ingredients. Its smells and feels great, and I absolutely LOVE the packaging! A great gift idea to keep in mind for those people that already have everything.
2. Nexus floor lamp from Nordlux.
I admit this one is still on my wish list!
Danish brand Nordlux timeless design in the Nexus floorlamp is exactly my style and not over exposed in media and photography like some of the great classic lamps.
I want this one in a matte black finish! Sold in Australia through Special Lights.
3. UrbanWalk print by Therese Sennerholt.
Swedish graphic designer Therese Sennerholt has a fantastic collection of typography and photographic prints available to order online form her webshop. These have become very popular and sought after and are available for worldwide shipment!
I would love this one hanging in my lounge room! Check out the webshop here.
4. Wall hooks by Zuster.
I have these stylish yet quirky wall hooks on hold and cant wait to get them and fix onto my bedroom wall! Made from woodturned solid American Oak - these will add that touch of raw timber and stylish design to any blank wall. I am thinking of adding this DIY necklace from Emmas Blog by stylist Annalena to hang over the hook. Maybe I will paint them black.... What do you think?
ps. Dont forget to check out Emmas Blog for some amazing content on Scandinavian design and styling.
5. Ipad wallet by MadeMeasure.
I am completely obsessed with these guys and their beautiful leather products!
These amazing ipad wallets and sleeves comes in three leather colours, and is a great gift for stylish men and women alike! My favourite is the tan colour and I have had my eyes on this wallet for a while.
They also have loops, pull and tab handles available for individual sale for adding that edge to joinery, I cant wait to specify these in my next interior design project!
