Hygge a Danish term pronounced ‘hue-gah’ meaning ‘cosiness’ and ‘togetherness’. It is linked to a mental state of enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Hygge is also viewed as an art form creating a notion of intimacy which soothes the senses. We see this design style adopted in many interiors with the best part about it, it is suitable for all seasons. Here are a few tips in creating a Hygge interior:
- Fluffy textures
With the use of soft textures seen in scatter cushions, rugs, ottoman and even arm chairs, the art of layering different textiles such as fux furs, chunky knits and woollen fabrics are the perfect way to create a relaxing and cosy environment.
- Keep the walls white
White walls allow you to draw attention to other aspects in the room, such as accessories, lights and furniture to accentuate the feeling of hygge. Adding pictures to the walls create a more personal experience.
- Fireplaces and candle lights
When looking to achieve a hygge mood a must-have on your list should be candles. With amazing scents such as rose petals, brewed tea and wild mint, candles are the perfect way to create a cosy atmosphere. Where possible light up your fire place and enjoy the feeling of Hygge.
