Montage: 22 Rooms with Scandinavian Holiday Decor

I love Scandinavian everything; even the Christmas decorations.

Don’t hate me, but I’m usually kind of anti-Christmas, being Jewish and all. That said, I did elope on Christmas Eve in Grand Central Station, and I do love being with my (non-Jewish) family during the holidays. But that’s more about love than the hoopla of the season.

My perspective was altered after my trip to Copenhagen last November. Holiday decor there is simple and rustic. The sheepskin, antlers, white stars, branches, and candlelight are earthy and wonderful. So, in the interest of celebrating winter holidays, here’s a dose of Nordic decor, December-style.

 Also, click over to the LampsPlus Style Illuminated blog, where I’m a guest blogger this month, for my “Home Accessories for a Scandinavian Style Christmas” post.

Montage: 34 Work Spaces with Swivel Chairs

Now that my workspace has been relocated to the living room, I’m thinking of getting a new desk chair. The one I’ve been using from Hold Everything is literally falling apart. I’m uncertain whether to opt for a stylish dining/upholstered chair or for a more ergonomically-correct, but not as living room-y, office chair. I think a rolling swivel chair may be too office-y for my workspace (I’ll post a photo of it tomorrow), though some of these look lovely. I love the Eames Management chair, but at over $2,000, it’s not likely to make an appearance at my house.
