Cool whites, sparkling candlelight and soft textures provide the backdrop to Yuletide celebrations in Elisabeth Nilsson’s home
As the festive season approaches, all is calm in Elisabeth Nilsson’s elegant apartment which is just the way she likes it. Having fallen for the handsome townhouses in this area of central Stockholm, the textile specialist moved here with her husband Sture once her children had flown the nest.
‘We bought the apartment during a December six years ago and there was this magical Christmas feel in the whole area, with its red-brick façades and a magnificent church at the centre,’ says Elisabeth. ‘So every year, we recreate that feeling at home. We have also started a new tradition, whereby we invite all our family and friends for homemade spiced wine in the run-up to Christmas Eve – the ritual of heating white wine and adding cinnamon, cloves, star anise and vanilla is something we love to do. It really kicks off the season.’
