Subtle Christmas Decorations in a Bright Dutch Cottage

I can’t believe it’s only 1 more month until Christmas. It feels like yesterday that it was summer and I was strolling through Stockholm in the sunshine. Time flies! But the last few days the temperature has dropped and we even had a little bit of (wet) snow so Christmas is definitely coming which means it’s time to get your home ready for the festive season.

We all have a different style when it comes to Christmas decor. Some like to go crazy, some prefer a more natural approach like this years H&M Home Christmas decor ór you can decorate in a more subtle way like in this cottage in The Netherlands.

It’s the home of interior stylist Mariëlla Houtsma and I love the bright but cozy atmosphere in the home with just a hint of Christmas.
