I talked yesterday about the Danish culture of hygge and how you can embrace it as a way of life, both tangibly in your home decor and emotionally by spending more time on yourself and with friends and family. Although the high season of hygge is during the winter months, it can also be a focus throughout the summertime, as we prepare our homes and outdoor living areas to entertain friends and enjoy the longer, brighter evenings.
For now though, we need to get through the remaining weeks of winter, so for the purpose of this post, I’m looking at key interiors pieces you can bring into your home to make it a more ‘hygge’ environment throughout the gloomy winter weather. For the Danes, hygge is purely focused on belonging to the moment, just being grateful for what you have and enjoying the good things in life with good people. It’s that simple and it really is believed to have a positive and uplifting effect on your inner soul. Why else would Denmark supposedly be the happiest nation on earth?
Here are some key pieces I have found that you could use to maximise ‘hygge’ in your home this winter…
