17 Christmas Decor Ideas in a Renovated Apartment With Nordic Interiors

With two less partitions, a kitchen open to the living room and a scandi- inspired decoration , this house has gained meters, functionality and a lot of style. What more could you want! One of Ana Isabel Gómez García’s dreams has come true with this house, her home, located in a residential neighborhood in the town of Getafe, near Madrid. “The best moments of my life, where I have my family, I have spent here,” he says, and then adds: “It is my comfort zone.” “My idea was to stay and live where I grew up and here I have even reunited with classmates from school.” But as important was the location as finding a home where she could feel happy with her husband, her two teenage daughters and their dog, Hydra. And he found it, in a newly built apartment.

Ana Isabel, passionate about decoration, knew that layout and interior design were key to achieving her goal. “My house is the place where I rest and relax. It is my refuge ”. He liked the house for its brightness, but also because it allowed him to carry out his greatest illusion, which was to unite living room and kitchen. And he undertook a reform that only lasted 20 days! “Everything went quickly, because the house was empty, we had not moved yet”.

1- WITH WITNESS

Behind the front door there was hardly any space … The solution: a metal rack and some knobs to hang the essentials. Ideal, the warm light led strip that subtly illuminates the wall.

2- ONNECTED SPACES

In the new open concept layout of the house, the dining room has been placed next to the wall to create an imaginary corridor that allows you to move from one room to another without having to overcome obstacles. A wise decision because the living room, with an elongated floor plan, gains spaciousness and is now the central axis of the house.

3- EVERYTHING BY HAND

With a current aesthetic, which combines white and gray, this space has been organized on two fronts; the cooking one, which dispenses with tall cabinets so as not to overload the space and extends to a window, and the one formed by a column with an oven and microwave, and a refrigerator.

Kitchen made to measure by the company Pepe Nieto, with glossy white stratified fronts. Home appliances, from Bosch.

4- OPTIMAL DISTRIBUTION

In the kitchen, a peninsula has been designed with a countertop that extends its surface to form an office in a minimum space. This piece of furniture, equipped with drawers and a sink, is also key to visually separating the kitchen from the living room.

5- CONNECTED SPACES

In the new open concept layout of the house, the dining room has been placed next to the wall to create an imaginary corridor that allows you to move from one room to another without having to overcome obstacles. A wise decision because the living room, with an elongated floor plan, gains spaciousness and is now the central axis of the house.

6- CHRISTMAS RED

Bet on red to celebrate Christmas. It is associated with these parties and you just need to add a pinch of gold to make the table presentation brilliant! Kitchenware and accessories, from Ikea.

7- DECO DETAILS

Enthusiast of the Nordic style, Ana Isabel has decorated her house with furniture of refined lines, white and wood, but she has also known how to create living spaces with decorative compositions and natural plants that, in addition to invigorating the decoration, arouse visual interest.

8- FIR IN NORDIC VERSION

A spruce in Nordic version does not overload the space. Without green branches, with an ultra-light wooden structure and flat ornaments, by Zara Home and Blaubloom. Tree with sticks, from Amazon.

9- COMFORT ZONE

Comfortable and functional, the corner sofa is a key piece in Ana Isabel’s living room, which already sports a Christmas decoration with a Nordic air. The sofa is accompanied by a duo of tables without edges, which make circulation more fluid.

10- COLOR BURST

White, the absolute protagonist of the decoration, spreads natural light in the living area and forms an ideal background to highlight the contrasts added by accessories and plants.

11- COZY ATMOSPHERE

The living room is an open and bright space after the reform. To make the living area warmer, the floor has been covered with a deep pile rug, which also visually separates this environment from the dining room.

12- FOCAL POINTS

Use bursts of color to instantly refresh your décor. Red, all character and so associated with Christmas decorations, creates an ideal contrast with black and white. Manta, by Zara Home. Red candles and domes with LEDs, from Ikea. Carpet, by Lorena Canals.

13- VISUAL CLEANING

In this corner of the bedroom the charm and simplicity of the Nordic style unfolds, with refined furniture and black touches. As in the Northern European countries, plants, natural wood and leather rugs cannot be absent.

14- LOVELY BEDROOM

The white walls make up a snowy background, perfect to highlight the cushions that, with their varied prints, enliven the bedroom decoration. Ideal and very inspiring the contrast created by the superposition of wood tones, black and white.

15- IN THE YOUTH BEDROOM

With notes of gray, brown, off-white and sand in furniture and textiles, the youth bedroom exudes naturalness. The touch of femininity: introducing pink hues that also add luminosity to the mix of fabrics and contrast with the slat base.

16- STUDY ZONE

True to the Nordic style, white spreads natural light and the black details on the wall add color. Desk, by El Globo Muebles. Chair, from Miguel Gifts. Mirror, shelf and panel, by Maisons du Monde.

17- DISTRIBUTION PLAN

Floor decorated for christmas flat

The key to the project was the demolition of two partitions, the one that separated the kitchen from the living-dining room, and the one at the entrance, to achieve an open concept distribution, a diaphanous space that concentrates all the day rooms — living room, dining room and kitchen— and that has become the central axis of the house, where the family lives longer.

The renovation was completed by changing the color of the doors to white, and replacing the floor with a lighter one with a whitish patina. “My house was going to be white,” he says emphatically to explain later, “it would be white because of the play that this color gives you; With it as a background, you change very little, some detail, and in reality, you change a lot ”. Ana Isabel sums up her deco essence like this:“ the base of my house is white, natural wood and plants; I love to see how the latter transform environments ”. Three of the keys that define the Nordic style.
