A baroque Christmas Artilleriet style


The holiday season we love 
to dress up is here. The standard Scandi Xmas 
is usually quite white&light filled and therefor the 
baroque inspired Christmas table 
that the trend leading interior store in Scandinavia,  Artilleriet is showing 2019 
is very inspiring to me.  

 Giovanni Baglione Sacred and Profane Love. 1602–1603, showing dramatic compositional chiaroscuro

Baroque painting often dramatizes scenes using CHIAROSCURO LIGHT EFFECTS that can be seen in works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Caravaggio and Giovanni Baglione as you see in painting above.  

Chiaroscuro in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. 


The natural darkness that surrounds us from November - February in Scandinavia is the perfect setting for the dramatic contrast of the Chiaroscuro effect

By providing only candle light in a room you achieve the Chiaroscuro effect easily anytime after 17.oo/5 pm. 


Clearly creative & fun tree deco above all found at Artilleriet webshop or at their physical store in Gothenburg. The Artilleriet Christmas 2019 is described as : 

Light and darkness in a magical symbiosis. The harsh winter outside, lit candles and the overwhelming beauty of the set table inside. Finally time to socialize. This is why We Love Christmas!


When it comes to INTERIORS in general 

I prefer an eclectic approach. 

A personal mix of old, new and trendy and as for Christmas its just perfect. 

Artilleriet shows the 
style of 2019 and adds: 

We think that the atmosphere of Christmas 

should be inspired by your individual 
style and liking. 
We favor an mix of objects that generate a 
unique sense of variation and holiday spirit.

Is this a X mas style to your liking?
