A Mountain Home in Norway, Christmas Decor Included

December 19, 2014

A few years back, we discovered Irene Finne’s blog Loppelilla, a chronicle of her life in the pristine Norwegian town of Evangerand, and ever since we’ve revisited her site for holiday decor inspiration. We especially like her simple, organic ideas for Christmas decorations: knitted ornaments, stars made of kraft paper, and her surprising use of black.
