Is this bridge for real? Looks like a scene taken straight out of LOTR!

This cool face pendant necklace.

I love wearing gilets, I find them really practical, yet I still haven't worn something as pretty as this one.

Spotted this simple and minimalistic pine garland that looks so easy to make (the cake is pretty too!).

This spiked bowl is impossibly gorgeous.

A cute and creative way to wrap presents.

I was so inspired listening to this podcast with Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and I can't wait to listen to all the episodes from this series by Creative Voyage.

This throw blanket is a piece of art.

Such a gorgeous modern wood and cane stool.

Who said a monochromatic table setting can't be festive? Love how simple yet rich and elegant this one looks.

A cute and sustainable Christmas tree idea

Sustainable Christmas decor, natural potted Christmas tree, Christmas tree plant, small space Christmas decor, natural Christmas decor, Scandinavian Christmas decor, minimalist Chritsmas tree. Photos and idea by Carla Sofie Molge

I've seen this holiday decor idea of a real potted Christmas tree in a couple places this year and I have to say I really love it!

A small potted cedar tree like the one in the house of Carla Sofie with a few hand-picked ornaments is a fresh alternative (no pun intended!) to the natural cut or plastic Christmas trees. Not to mention a great sustainable choice that will grow with you over the years and also get that extra sentimental value of keeping you company over many holidays to come.

Plus, it can look great in smaller spaces or as an extra touch of decor and will still look pretty after the holiday season ends at your terrace or outdoor space!
