As I’m sure you know by now, my Christmas style is always very simple and minimal, taking inspiration from my Norwegian roots. The festive season this year is going to be very different for everyone. As we learn to celebrate Christmas apart from family, we’re looking for comfort within our own homes.
This year I’m focusing on a much slower, pared-back look with the new Georg Jensen Christmas Collectibles. In true Nordic style, it’s rooted in comfort, cosiness and small decorative touches using natural elements such as pine tree cuttings. The garden has proved to be a real lifeline for branches and greenery when I’m unable to get out to the florist. You could also take a few clippings you find on your walks out and about.
To create mood against our neutral dining room walls, I’ve painted a black backdrop as a base to style a seasonal vignette on the sideboard. It really defines the fluid shape of my favourite Henning Koppel pitcher, combined with a single palladium heart bauble. Designed by Sanne Lund Traberg the 2020 Christmas collection is inspired by early 20th century floral photographs by Karl Blossfeldt and from her own garden in winter. The bauble features a cut-away design and a delicately etched ice flower motif.
The real show-stopping piece of the collection this year is the Ice Flower Christmas mobile in palladium-plated brass. Its intricate shape features a large snowflake from which a smaller one hangs below, catching the light wherever you hang it. And in the soft glow of a Calendar candle, the scene is set for relaxed celebrations starting with a slow wake-up and breakfast in bed.
As with every year when Georg Jensen release Christmas collectibles, their versatility lends them to small decorative touches, tree decorations, festive finishing touches to gift wrap and perfect additions to style the table for lunch or a nice fika.
If you’re changing up the family traditions this year out of necessity, how will you be celebrating this year?
