Chalet Christmas

What do you do when you live in a small cabin and a Christmas tree would take up a quarter of the living space? I’ve been looking on Pinterest and am taken with all the creative ways you can make a nod to the festive season without it taking over the whole room. I am particularly enamoured of these below  but…we don’t really have a vacant wall.


The above images all come from Lonny Magazine  plus there are a few more ideas in the article as well.

There’s also this Scandi  style around this season, which is just a small unadorned bit of greenery, either a branch in water or a small potted tree. This I really like, it’s like saying no fuss, no tinsel, no tat, just natural – and less cleaning up, so whats not to like. Okay I won’t do the light thing (below right), I can see needles ending up in the Christmas dinner, but the other two are pretty fool proof…no`?
