Stylish Scandi Christmas

Scandinavian style is everywhere in our homes, and here’s NOMA’s guide to getting the Scandi look when it comes to your Christmas decorations.

Colours:  keep it simple with mostly white decorations, touches of silver, a little greenery and add pops of red – and if it’s red gingham, even better for that Scandi, modern-country look.

Themes:  get the homespun feel with felts, twine, wood, natural elements and metal.  Reindeers, birds, and hearts suit the Scandi scheme perfectly.

Traditional Christmas Style

Traditional Christmas Styling Tips from Team NOMA.

Trends come and go, but a traditional look for your Christmas decorations will never go out of fashion.  Add a few ‘wow’ touches and mix in some contemporary pieces too for a sophisticated traditional look that’s hard to beat.

To get the traditional look, green as a base is a must for your tree, foliage, and wreath – and then top off with reds and golds for a warm, nostalgic Christmas theme.

Add traditional-style metal lanterns for a warm Christmas glow – our NOMA lanterns come with battery-operated candles that look so good you’ll think they’re the real thing.

Satisfy your inner child with the ultimate traditional collectible Christmas ornament – we love the NOMA Musical Village with Rotating Train – set it up on a hallway table surrounded by greenery, twinkling lights and fake snow to create a magical scene.

 Add fir garlands onto fireplaces, log baskets, and staircases and embellish to your heart’s content with pine cones, baubles and berries.

We love fake snow!  It’s white, fun, and whether your style is contemporary or traditional it gives everything that touch of Christmas magic.  Get your favourite decorative light chain and arrange on a mantelpiece, windowsill or table, then add fake snow for instant style.

  1. Keep it Natural

Natural Christmas decorations are a firm favourite, but this year why not ditch the pine cones and go for a more contemporary take on the natural world?  Our LED Birch Tree looks stunning on their own or as part of a bigger contemporary Christmas display.

  1. Deck the Halls

Give your hallway the country retreat-feel with a wow-factor wall light.  We love the NOMA Light up Stag head – you can use it inside or outside, but we like the idea of pretending to be Lord of the Manor and hanging it up in an entrance hall or living room.

  1. Decorate every Nook and Cranny

Spread the Christmas cheer to every corner of the room by looking at all those areas of your home that could do with lighting up.  Whether it’s a beam, a downstairs loo, or a log basket – a gorgeous light garland will give it that Christmas touch.

Modern Christmas Style

For a Modern Christmas styling scheme all you need is some pops of colour, super-cool lights, and a bit confidence.

Festoon lights are the perfect option for giving your Christmas decorations a modern retro feel.  They really give your tree the ‘wow’ factor without the need to add many more decorations for a fairground-meets-Christmas look.

Add some pops of bright colour.  A red lantern in an otherwise plain design adds interest and draws your eye into the scheme.

Industrial style bulbs are having a renaissance and Christmas is the perfect time to bring them into your home for a very ‘now’ Christmas.  Our range of Edison-style bulb strings are perfect for creating a stunning display.  They look great indoor and outdoor, and can be really effective whether you choose to cluster them together or string them along a fireplace or on your tree.
