Holiday String Lights

Use tactile lighting like pendant lamps, table lamps, and layered candles to create ambiance. String soft white lights along the bookshelves.

Position a comfortable armchair or loveseat next to a window, where there is ample natural light. Layer on woolen throws and sheepskin for extra softness.

Finish off the space with calming artwork and decorative objects with clean, simple lines true to Scandinavian design. The overall vibe should be minimal yet inviting.
