Christmas Trend Alert: Scandi Style
Isn’t it funny how the tables turn? As kids, we’d do anything to escape our rooms. Especially at Christmastime, when plotting to spot Santa was all. Now, if we could spend all day in bed, we totally would.
If you’re looking to spend most of December (and the best part of January) chilling in PJs, lounging in bed, wondering if you’ve eaten your weight in leftovers, we have the perfect setup for you.
Before we go on, there are a few must-haves: traditional tartans, cuddly faux furs, argyle knits and soft, brushed cottons. Low on supplies? Head over to Primark fast--human hibernation time is almost here…
This Christmas, we’re channeling Scandi vibes, with plenty of rustic touches and clean white space. Anchored with sanded wood, the Scandinavian look is all about keeping it fresh. We’re mixing in merry reds, Christmassy checks and wintery patterns, to make this trend equal parts cozy and festive.
For a quick way to update your bedding, add a pile of comfy cushions. From photoreal prints to metallics and festive shapes, it's all good. You'll especially love them when nonstop streaming results in laptop heat you could fry an egg on #TheStruggleIsReal.
And if you want another way to get creative, try mixing, matching and even clashing your Christmas bedding. We've kept things traditional with tartans but paired them with cute novelty prints to update the look. Finally, keep a faux fur throw on hand for those extra cold nights--and days (let’s face it: your bed's going to be the center of your universe for a while.)
We’re guessing you’ll be snuggling down for the foreseeable future just as soon as it’s socially acceptable. And we’re happy to go on the record and say any date after December 24th is totally okay. Before your bed becomes your burrow though, don’t forget to hang your stocking and wrap your gifts.
From super traditional red-on-white, to cutesie prints and patterns, there's a gifting theme for whatever wrap vibes you're going for. And if tape, scissors, and rolls of wrap are too much to deal with, keep it simple with a gift box!
Another Christmas lounging essential: your choice of attire. And what better way to veg out than with fleecy loungewear? Primark PJs are where it’s at when it comes to nightwear (if we do say so ourselves!). There’s nothing like new pajamas, especially in winter. From Fair Isles to repeat prints, our collection will keep you toasty and snug.
Finally, it’s no secret that Primark Home’s candle game is on point. We have scents, jars, votives, tea lights and super cute novelty holders for every mood and room. We love the Scandinavian feel of our distressed jars: not just on-trend, but also perfect for adding a little festive ambience. Not your style? We have HUNDREDS, for anyone and everyone who waxes poetic when it comes to wicks and wax. Fairy lights are also a cute mood-enhancer without a flickering flame.
If you're planning on being semi-social, you'll need some clothes. The Christmas season is all about parties (obvs), so here's some inspiration to get you and the little ones glam!
