Hygge is a feeling of wellbeing, peace and cosiness. The gentle, warming glow of a candle or cuddling up under the covers on a winter’s day. Hygge is what the Danes use to beat the cold and chilly winters – by celebrating good times with family and indulging in good food and cosy comfort.
So, what does a hygge home look like? Think traditional Scandi – clean lines, functionality, lots of light and supreme snugness. From accessories, to colours and furniture, here’s how you can turn your home into a hygge haven.Shop all Scandi-style
The atmosphere should be tranquil, neutral….relaxing. Soft blues, winter whites and gentle greys make for a calming, stress-free atmosphere, and are the perfect antidote to dark winter nights. You can also mix in light greens and natural tones for added serenity.
The wholesome, natural look of wooden furniture is very hygge. Blonde woods such as white pine, ash and beech are the best complement to any Scandi-style, while natural grains and knots of wood provide a rustic edge.Shop living room furniture
How snug is hygge? Think snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug…and double it. Fluffy cushions, shaggy rugs and thick throws will all up the cosy factor. So nestle up on the sofa, crawl under a soft fabric or faux fur blanket and grab a nice warm hot chocolate for good measure.Shop home furnishings
Togetherness, sharing memories and having a laugh with those closest to you is an important part of hygge. Create the perfect space for a feel-good gathering with a big dining table, ideal for hosting.Shop Scandi dining
