5 Ways Hygge-fy Your Home

What is hygge?

Dictionary result for hygge

/ˈh(j)uːɡə,ˈhʊɡə/

noun: hygge

a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).


Keep on reading. Although this may sound complicated, with only a few practical tips you can add hygge to your home.  

1. Add candles

Candle Holder

Let’s face it. We all have a super romanticized view of candles. And so do the Danes. The good thing, however, is that candles work anytime anywhere, glowing warmly and creating the perfect nest during the cold season.

2. Use a variety of textures 

Sofa

Take this room as an example. The sofa is full of different textures and materials. All of these create the perfect, comfortable atmosphere you will try to achieve. 

3. Feature the books

Alva Light

Many people are afraid of displaying books in their living spaces because they are colourful. The picture above is the perfect example that this should not be the case. You can see how the books actually tie the room together and give it a more homey, yet still chic feel.

4. Let in plenty of light

Miso Dining Table

I cannot stress enough how important a well-lit room is. It’s simply vital. Light ensures that all objects are seen at their full potential.

5. Keep to a warm colour palette

I can guarantee you that a warmer, more soothing colour palette will make the difference. You can almost see the cosiness in the picture above, from artist Brook & Peony, which is definitely the vibe you should be aiming for.
