The weather is finally beginning to change as we get deeper into Fall. This means that it is only going to get colder, so it is time to make your home an extra cozy oasis. One of the best ways to do this is to follow the example of cold weather experts: The Scandinavians. Hygge, pronounced as “hoo-gah,” is a Danish lifestyle centered around the feeling of comfort and togetherness. Follow our tips below to help bring a little Hygge to your home this season.
When it comes to creating a comfortable environment, candles are a quick and easy way to do it. Fill the air with a scent that fits the season, such as cinnamon, vanilla, mahogany, or pumpkin spice, and sit back and relax in the cozy, gentle candlelight.
There is nothing more comforting than a warm cup of tea, apple cider, or hot chocolate. Treat yourself at the end of the day with a warm beverage of your choice, as you allow your body to rest.
Hygge decor is all about comfort. Make any space instantly feel comfortable by incorporating more thick blankets and pillows in your decor. Idea: create little cozy nooks in a corner or by a window and curl up with a book or tea.
Create a cozy atmosphere by using calm, neutral colors on your walls and in your decor. Loud patterns and bold colors can sometimes be overwhelming. Warm colors are particularly cozy, such as shades of beige, cream, or brown. Natural wooden accents add a perfect cabin cozy feel to any space.
The Hygge lifestyle really emphasizes spending time with the people you love. Nothing makes a home more cozy than having it filled with the people you care about. Put down your phone, and sit amongst your loved ones in conversation and laughter.
We hope you enjoyed learning more about Hygge lifestyle and how to use it to make your home feel extra cozy this season.
