a warm christmas atmosphere


This the warm and inviting family home of designer Ylva Sharp. When the holiday season is approaching Ylva makes her home, which is a renovated school house in Hjortnäs, Sweden, ready for Christmas by decorating it with sheepskins, wood work and beautiful decorations made from paper, pine cones and twigs. The family usually organise craft evenings with friends. It’s fun to make your own Christmas cards and decorations, says Ylva. Ylva’s tips for a warm Christmas atmosphere: “Take advantage of what nature has to offer. Small spruce, pine cones, twigs, etc. are great Christmas decorations. Also, group decorations together instead of spreading them out, it gives a calmer atmosphere. And last, lots of candlelight!”
