Danish-speaking people say “hygge,” which roughly translates to creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people, particularly in wintertime. Hygge is all about using all 5 senses to absorb the joy of even the simplest things: the smell of apple and cinnamon cake, the words of a lovely poem, the feeling of lying in your bed in freshly ironed linen, or just looking out at the colors in the garden. Hygge is everywhere; you just need to discover it. This social media trend is one you should consider trying and we have a few items and tips to help “hygge” your home.
1.) Incorporate light
Warm light from a candle, string of lights, or lighted Village piece creates a warm ambiance for every room.
2.) Add textures
Soft textures such as chunky knit blankets, tweed pillows, and fluffy woolen rugs add comfort and dimension to your space.
3.) Tiny or simple additions can have impact
This is not about overhauling your home; tiny additions can make an impact! Consider adding some of your favorite personal items that hold meaning- such as a Snowbabies piece.
4.) Enjoy your space
Don’t focus on what might wow or impress guests but rather what kinds of items make each one of your rooms feel like a sanctuary.Share This Post!
