CHRISTMAS :: Scandinavian Christmas by Neutral Hue

Neutral Hue's Scandinavian Christmas photo shoot as seen on the Oaxacaborn blog

Hi, it’s Ashley + Christina, blogging duo at neutral hue.

Our side-by-side blog is devoted to the love of neutral! Ashley is southern and has a classic, rustic aesthetic, while Christina is from NY and a lover of classic, modern design. We are out to prove that neutral works throughout design styles + sensibilities.

When Gina sent us a note about guest blogging about Scandinavian holidays we knew the topic was a great one for us!

We had this little shoot planned for our wee ones, and found it the perfect place to showcase the minimal holiday styling. Our inspiration for the shoot was holiday beauty in simplicity mixing the Ashley’s love of rustic through her son, 1 year old Wyatt (eeks, how time flies!), and Christina’s organic simplicity through her 9 month old daughter Mila.

Hope you enjoy our interpretation of simple Scandinavian.

Happy (Neutral) Holidays!

Ashley + Christina

a walk around anthropologie and west elm

tonight, my love and i wandered around west elm and anthropologie, sipping Peet’s coffee. i love how we can just spontaneously jump in the car after a long day, and go unwind.

i always feel so inspired after leaving anthropologie, wanting to come home and create and redecorate and spruce everything up. window shopping is so much fun, but it’s even more fun to try to recreate the looks at home later (for way less moola).  but tonight, i’m making some homemade sushi, not decorating.  so while the rice is cooling, i’ll share some inspiring images from both stores…
