We turn to IKEA for first-apartment finds and inexpensive furniture that can be elevated with a few smart hacks, but the Swedish brand's latest line suggests it should also be you go-to for holiday décor.
Inspired by late 19th-century Swedish folklore, the Vinter 2016 collection is packed with affordable, stylish Scandinavian wares. Red, white, and charcoal are prominent colors, with plenty of natural accents including woven fiber and wood.
"When decorating, I prefer a more natural color palette for my home, then I can then keep the holiday throughout the winter season," says creative leader Karin Gustavsson. "I like to keep that feeling for a long time."
The collection spans festive decorations, candles, lighting, gift wrapping, and quaint kitchen accessories like star pastry cutters and gift boxes to house homemade treats. No matter how big or small your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah event, there's an accessory to elevate your party.
