A beautiful christmas

By Helle Tjaberg  – 

We have taken a closer look at the materials and styles that are in abundance in the shops this year, and linked them to the four characteristic BOEN styles; PURE NORDIC, MODERN RUSTIC, URBAN CONTRAST and CLASSIC ELEGANCE.
Christmas is all about traditions, and repeating them from year to year, this also includes the decorations. However, it is always nice to add something new in the form of a new ornament or decorative idea.

Metallic warmth

It is an interior trend that does not seem to want to go away; I am of course talking about the warm metallic such as copper, brass and gold. And Christmas is definitely the time to shine! Create contrast by hanging golden ornaments on a simple branch, or pair golden objects against matt ceramics or white details for a glamorous and elegant look!

Habitat golden Christmas
Habitat has rolled out the golden carpet this Christmas, which is perfect if you love
the CLASSIC ELEGANCE style. However, here are also a lot of interesting details
for the URBAN CONTRAST aficionado; go for the darker metallic shade, and invest
in some of the geometric and animal shapes. www.habitat.eu

Simple and elegant from HM Home
Christmas is the time for abundance, also in a PURE NORDIC interior – keep the
background clean and let the golden details contrast against natural materials.

Clean and organic shapes from House Doctor
I love this simple and elegant table setting which transcends a number of styles, and
shows elements that suit both the CLASSIC ELEGANT, PURE NORDIC and
MODERN RUSTIC thanks to the meeting between both very clean and more
organic shapes. From House Doctor. http://en.housedoctor.dk

Christmas ornaments Karen Blixen
The playfulness in the meeting between golden ornaments and deeper jewel colours
is perfect if you feel most at home in an URBAN CONTRAST interior, where colours
such as burgundy and deep red are perfect. Christmas ornaments, “Karen Blixen”

Natural harmony

Delicate and subdued with simple rustic elements; a natural Christmas is a favourite style for many! If you choose a natural Christmas it doesn´t even have to become that expensive as you can use a number of elements you can find outdoors such as pinecones, branches and twigs of pine or spruce. Go for a muted palette of grey, black, beige and white, and create natural contrast with wood, rattan and leather. If you feel the need to add colour, go for delicate pastels, which is very on trend.
