Festive decor inspiration: House tour of a cosy + snowy German lodge

Take a tour around artist Katharina's cosy and Christmassy German home to inspire your own festive decorating this December...

Today I’m sharing a quick home tour around Katharina Kölln’s compact and cosy Bavarian home. I first discovered Katharina through her Instagram account @hiermitmir and I fell in love with her beautiful photos of her peaceful home.

I’ve since had the pleasure of writing about Katharina’s home renovation for the Christmas issue of Reclaim. This is still available to buy online, so grab yourself a copy to see more photos of the property and read all about Katharina’s DIY renovation and upcycling projects.

The house was once a vacation chalet within a holiday complex in the forests near Nuremberg. The beautiful woodland location makes the whole home feel even more festive when dressed for Christmas – it’s certainly somewhere that I would love to stay for the festive period.

Katharina is an artist and she works from her home (often on the open porch) to create beautiful botanical designs inspired by nature. You can check out her stunning creations on her website Hiermitmir.de and buy pieces through her online shop here.

Katharina decorates her home for Christmas using pieces of spruce and foliage from the garden to create simple garlands and wreaths. A couple of Santa decorations Christmas tree makes the living room feel festive without going OTT.

I love her use of warm white lights on the Christmas trees. It makes the whole place feel really snug and welcoming. Along with the velvety cushions and soft throw blankets, it makes me want to cosy up on the sofa and warm up in front of the woodburner.

I love the rustic style of this little cottage and it seems like the perfect place to spend Christmas – you can’t beat a real fire for a cosy feeling, can you? Lots of layers of blankets and quilts on the bed help to lock warmth in at night.

This looks like such a cute kitchen to cook Christmas dinner in, doesn’t it? Katharina designed it herself using upcycled elements to create a unique space.

Let me know what you love about Katharina’s cosy Christmas home in the comments section below and please share how you’re decorating your home for the festive season, I’d love to hear your ideas.
