The countdown to Christmas has begun and we all look for the best Nordic decor ideas to create a cozy and inviting decor.

Traditional Christmas decor with red and green will always remain in our hearts, but just as everything else evolves or change, so does our taste for upgrading the Christmas decors.

Scandinavian people have always inspired us with their ecological Christmas decorations, hygge interior, and slow pace lifestyle. After all, simple things are the ones that make us happy.

Creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere is all about comfort. Starting from the entrance door, to the hallway and living room, each space will offer a specific feeling from the minute you step in.

The nordic interior decor is about white walls and fluffy rugs and blankets, therefore, take advantage of the inspiration shown above and recreate this elegant Nordic Christmas living room decor without clogging your space with too many items.

If you haven’t got a fireplace, there are many options to fake one. Either buy an electric fire stove with remote control and place nearby log holder rack for a more realistic look.

Other options are to attach a fireplace wallpaper sticker on the wall, buy flameless led candles, and place them under a wood fireplace mantel. It will look super cozy and will make stunning decor all year round.

Another option I notice in recent years is to play a fireplace video on your tv. Depends on what tv you might have, you can select a fireplace video as a background.

Smart tv has specific apps for using this feature and if you go for it, you will save money that you had thrown away on a fireplace to use just for the festive season.

A Christmas table centerpiece is a symbol of celebrating the Christmas spirit and for adding extra warmth to the dinner table. Gather a few nordic Christmas ornaments, or make them yourself, and don’t forget the pine needles and pine cones, as well as vanilla and cinnamon-scented candles.

The sweet vanilla and cinnamon fragrance will boost your food appetite to enjoy the delightful Christmas dinner and the fresh fragrance of pine needles will spice the festive atmosphere for an even merrier dinner.

Just like I mentioned earlier, the nordic decor is all about white, clean, and minimalism. By painting the walls white will brighten up the space and will create a calm vibe without much effort.

The green Christmas tree-lined next to the white wall will make it pop and add a wow impression. By looking carefully at all the decor items you will quickly notice that are created with simple handmade.

The coffee table is a piece of design that you can easily make yourself, so does the pine needles centerpiece that’s set as a candle holder.

The most important part of this Scandinavian Christmas decor is the fireplace, which we explained above the options of how you can fix one in your living room.
