It’s all about the Hygge this winter; think maximum comfort with minimal effort. Hygge is a Danish word loosely translated to mean coziness. It’s the perfect word for this time of year. It’s a time for relaxing evenings at home, plenty of hot drinks and just generally slowing down the pace of life for awhile before the hectic process of Christmas begins.
If you are interested to learn more about Hygge check out my recent post What is Hygge and Why you Should Embrace it in your Home?.
Today I have put together some items that can help to transform your home into a cozy sanctuary.
Add a Warm Glow with Candles
Candles are perfect for creating a calm and relaxing environment in your home. I always find it’s a much nicer and warmer light than most lamps.
Get Cozy with a New Blanket
After a hard day’s work there is nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa wrapped in a thick furry blanket. Made even better when you have a warm cup of tea to go with it.
Cushion are a great way to add a bit of Hygge into your home. The large fluffy or faux fur ones are the best for maximum coziness.
If you’re not a fan of candles or have young children at home then fairy lights can be a safer and more practical option. There are so many different sorts out there today so you can almost certainly find ones to match your current decor.
