I can’t pinpoint when I first fell in love with Scandinavian style. It might very well have to do with the fact that I was raised in Geneva, Illinois … a quaint Midwest town west of Chicago with strong Swedish roots. I remember shopping as a child with my mother at The Gift Box , a Swedish store with those beautiful Dala horses that I always wanted. The Gift Box is still in business today, I’m happy to say. And they still sell Dala horses! Today I thought I’d share inspiration photos featuring a red and white Scandinavian Christmas.

After looking at these Scandinavian inspired Christmas photos, I’m tempted to take a trip to Geneva this weekend to visit The Gift Box. I just might have to take home a wooden Swedish Dala horse. I never did get one as a kid … I think I’ve waited long enough, don’t you?
