Christmas with Swedish flair

I love how the Swedes transform the most basic furnishings into a glamorous affair. They are the masters of living simple with flair. While the French love to add a touch of guilding here and there, only the Swedes can make basic look beautiful.

This is the home of Ylva Skarp, calligraphy artist and designer. Ylva Skarp uses her creative mind to turn calligraphy into patterns and incorporates them into her own range of prints and homewares. Her style is a mix of modern ideas and traditional Swedish craftsmanship with a contemporary twist, and her home reflects this.

Ylva's calligraphy designs can be seen in abundance throughout the apartment, on walls and fabrics, and even the floor. Some of the products that are available include cushions, ceramics and artworks, all incorporating Ylva's talent.





Ylva has also launched a range of Christmas decor that features her calligraphy.
