If you haven’t heard of HYGGE before, then be prepared for that current penchant for all things Scandi-style to take over your home décor styling. Cosy by name and absolutely cosy by nature, this craze from those crazy Danish-peeps is all about snuggly warmth, indoor lighting and a whole lot of wood for starters.
Want some inspiration?
The craze for ‘firefly’ type lighting where mini light threads are placed into a jar shows no signs of diminishing. With a definite lean towards vintage and most certainly showing a nod towards the recycled or even upcycled look, these hit the HYGGE brief as they create a warm glow without the need for strong light bulbs.
Of course, we say that why not take the look one step further and go personalised in your jar styling. There’s surely nothing more warm and cosy than having the names of your nearest and dearest etched in to your HYGGE theming, letting you be surrounded by light AND unconditional love.
Wood, wood and more wood
In Denmark, there’s no such thing as too much wood. Indeed, Scandi-style needs wood to make it happen, and for that matter, so does HYGGE.
Wood creates that cosy vibe with its connotations of warm, crackling fires. Conjuring up pictures of romantic cuddles on the sofa, sitting around with family and friends making inane yet essential to life conversation, wood just has ‘it’, whatever ‘it’ is.
Of course, home décor HYGGE style statements don’t always have to be obvious. This chopping board is happy to hang around in the background but once seen, is never likely to be forgotten. Crank up the cosiness by adding your choice of personalisation and that warm, fuzzy, feeling loved feeling is never far away.
Good food, good drink, good company!
HYGGE is very much about feeling cosy in every aspect of your home life. So good times via good food, good drink and good company is very much at the forefront on the concept.
Of course this is very much in line with the festive Christmas period which is for a lot us, the only time in the year when we spend time to truly relax and enjoy the company of others whilst eating and drinking without the obligatory guilt.
Make them feel welcome in your home from literally the very first moment that they walk through the door with our personalised slate hanging sign. Sometimes saying it in words is more HYGGE than HYGGE itself.
