Hygge interiors

Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.

As a cultural category with its sets of associated practices hygge has more or less the same meanings in Danish and Norwegian, but the notion is more central in Denmark than in Norway

Bringing hygge pronounced hue-gah in the home is actually really easy. It’s about texture, tone & warmth

Texture: Chunky knit throws, faux fur cushions, natural dried foliage brings an element of biophillia into your home. A connection to nature is key for a sense of calm

Tone: keeping the tones of your home natural, neutral & calm is key. Scandinavian style is a great example of hygge colour ways. Making sure that colours are warming balanced with white otherwise spaces can become either too ‘mauve jungle” or clinical white & cold.

Warmth: creating a cosy atmosphere, almost like a log cabin with candles & natural orniments. We have a lovely wood wick candle (thanks mum) which crackles like a wood fire, which is really lovely.

Whatever makes you cosy & happy. Especially in these uncertain times.
