This home belongs to a Danish Interior shop owner, Dorte Hertz. She believes it’s important to start create a Christmas home early, as December tends to be so busy and before you know it Christmas came and left. She recommends decorating in November and then fully enjoy some quality time with the family during Advent. “Christmas is all about being together with your loved ones. In Scandinavia Christmas is very traditional and what’s most important is gathering the family” says Dorte. She’s the mother of four and owner of interior and design store Magnifique in Holte, north of Copenhagen.
The shop features brands like Day Home, Tine K, Oi Soi Oi and Nordal in addition to vintage finds.
