For Birgitta, Christmas is an elegant affair, a chance to embrace more opulent style choices, to spend time with loved ones at home – and to celebrate! The interiors photographer travels regularly for work, but when December rolls around she takes a break and turns her creativity to putting up decorations and hosting parties with her husband Lasse. “I try to buy gifts early so I have time on the weekends to have friends over,” Birgitta says. “I love throwing dinner parties when our home smells like Christmas.”
