Beautifully Simple Ways to add a Scandi Glow to Your Home This Advent!
It’s been snowing all night here in Malmö and our world has transformed into a winter wonderland. 
In Scandinavia, Christmas (or ‘winter’) decorations are taken very seriously not least because candles and fairy lights help to brighten up the darkness and touches from nature draw the cosiness of the season indoors. 
Our Nordic friends tend to start decorating on the First Sunday of Advent – starting in a simple way with star lanterns, candles and maybe a wreath for the door. The star of the day of course, is the advent candle. These come in many shapes and forms including a numbered candle, four candles in a wreath, a simple candleholder in the window or even a crown hung from the ceiling. You may choose to forgo the tradition entirely and just enjoy the warm glow of candlelight in the evening. 
Here is some inspiration for those of you who love candles as much as I do!

PS Please always exercise caution with candles in your home. Keep naked flames away from anything flammable and never leave a lit candle unattended. It’s also a good idea to only use candles in a well ventilated space.
