Monochromatic Christmas

Furniture designer and carpenter Jesper Møller Hansen's Christmas decorations are in keeping with the natural materials and monochromatic palette used throughout his home — right down to the choice of a large birch tree as a substitute for the traditional evergreen.
Jesper put his skills to use for the holiday, making almost all the Christmas decorations in the house himself — many were created from driftwood found on the beach and branches gathered from the forest. Felt is another material he made extensive use of, both for tree ornaments and for a dining table runner, which also helps with the acoustics — when there's a large gathering the sound tends to bounce off the high ceilings. The staircase leading from the living room to the second floor is also decorated with a charming Christmas sculpture, made by Jesper from a piece of driftwood decorated with black glass beads. It's a relaxed and minimalist approach to decorating for the holidays, celebrating with a nod to nature — rather refreshing during a season that tends to be heavy on the glitter.

Along with Stephanie, I noticed the wallpaper. Hmmm. I like this but I have to say that if they have children, a little color wouldn't kill them (or maybe it would? :)
