Is it that time of the year already? Only last week we had a heatwave in The Netherlands but IKEA has already launched its Christmas collection. I must say I’ve debated whether or not to post this already, but now fall has officially arrived I just have to share these wonderful new IKEA Christmas images. The collection is inspired by Swedish folk from the 1800s. They’ve used simple and natural materials such as yarn, wool, linen and wood. The collection is in true winter colors such as grey, black and white with seasonal touches in red and silver. I love the dark moody colors and seeing these images really make me want to get my home in holiday mood. The collection includes lovely lighting to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Combine this with cozy fabrics, seasonal decorations and warm colors and your home in winter proof!
‘For me, Christmas is about my loved ones. That’s when you have time to hang out, eat together and have fun together. When I decorate home, I prefer natural colors so that I can have it there all winter. I want to preserve the feeling a long time.’
– Karin Gustavsson, Creative Director, IKEA of Sweden

Does this get you in the Christmas mood already? I must say these images are spectacular. And I really love that floral wallpaper in the living room, I want that! In the next couple of months I will post more Christmas decorations, so keep checking out my blog for more inspiration. I also have a Christmas board on Pinterest if you want to see seasonal inspiration from previous years and this board will get updated a lot in the upcoming months 🙂
