My Christmas decor at home – Part 1- Little Big Bell

Scandinavian-Christmas-Little-Big-BellHello all, here is instalment number 1 of my Christmas decor at home.

This creation was inspired by the mood board from my last blog post. The theme was ‘Arctic Pine’.

The aim was for a monochrome palette whilst incorporating elements of nature.

Christmas-styling-Little-Big-BellFragrance was also key to mood setting. Love the smoky scent of this Bibliotheque candle from Byredo.

Scandinavian-Christmas-bark-stars-photo-and-styling-by-Little-Big-BellThese stars in Birch bark were a lucky, local find. Great as a visual display on the wall

Christmas-design-letters-cup-Arne-Jacobsen-Little-Big-BellThese Alphabet cups are so cute. I’ve added a Teal coloured top to one as an accent colour. Addition of foliage offsets the monochrome palette and even better, it subtly scents the air with Pine.

Christmas-Little-Big-BellHope you like what I have done so far. There is more to come in my next post and even more decorating to do.

Have a lovely week. x


  1. Hi G, absolutely love your decorating so far! Can just imagine that pine smell, it is so welcoming at this time of year. Really chilly here tonight, I just got back from London and all the cars on the Kane have frost on already! L x

      Thank you so much Louisa 🙂 I think today is going to be a very cold day in London too. Keep warm lovely. xx

  2. Looks great Geraldine. I love the understated colour palette. Looking forward to your next instalment!

  3. i’m desperately looking for a tree as the one you have. Simple, no foliage, moss … well, it seems this isn’t something you can easily find in Southern France… should I take the fisrt flight for London to get one? have a lovely day xxi.

      Thank you Ilaria, it was a lucky find. The tree was from a Danish Christmas market in London. It was pretty affordable too. And yes, you should come to London, would be lovely to see you x

    Love the way you combined the festive foliage and natural textures like bark with the monochrome accents- the dash if metallic brings so much festive spirit! So stylish. xx
