7 IMAGES OF HYGGE STYLE BATHROOMS…

We have recently moved to a new home down south and the house we bought was nearly finished which meant the white suite and tiles were already fitted in the bathroom. All the rest of the room is also white so it was easy for me to finish it with accessories.

Check out these Hygge style bathrooms including this lovely one from Mother Distracted who say that by using a simple white base for your bathroom, the furniture will not only be timeless but also produce a serene space.

This one from Foam and Bubbles is another example of how white can be cosy. They say “Lighten, brighten and simplify” should be your new mantra when designing your bathroom. Painting your walls white maximises the light in your room, again brightening up the dark winter months.

This next bathroom is one of my favourites and shows how lighting can make such a difference. Hygge Home explain that Lighting can be one of the easiest ways to create a warm and cosy ambience in the bathroom. As an example, dimmable lighting is a great choice for the bathroom as it will give you an abundance of light when you need it with to create a calm atmosphere in the evening when you want to relax. Placing scented candles will also allow you to create a tranquil ambience.

I love the storage in this bathroom from Pinterest. I wish I’d thought of something like this. Simple but very effective.

You could be a bit more daring and add wallpaper like this one also from Pinterest,

And finally, The Culture Trip say that rather than a rushing for a quick shower in the morning, make sure your bathroom is a place for rest and rejuvenation. The trend for spa-style bathrooms is on the rise with even saunas – a favourite among Scandinavians – becoming more common in bathrooms across the globe. Simple is often best, however, and nothing beats a soak in a steaming hot bath. Invest in candles, fluffy bath robes, clever storage, good lighting and even a sound system to make your experience as relaxing as possible.

6 EASY HOMEMADE ADVENT CALENDARS HYGGE STYLE…

I love these homemade advent calendars and just wish I had spotted them much sooner so I could make some for my family, some are from tip junkie and the last two from Pinterest.

I love this Countdown To Christmas board, it couldn’t be easier and looks great.

This one from On Sutton Place made with gift tags would be a great one for the whole family to get involved with.

This clothes hanger countdown from Silly Old Suitcase is just up my street and is another easy one to make using left over bits of lace fabric and paper and envelopes.

Another one to make with the family is this envelope advent calendar which I personally think looks very expensive and yet a doddle to put together from Tauni Everett.

Glitter and Caffeine also have some great DIY advent calendars and my two favourites from their list are this one made from old pyjamas. It’s quite a big job so would need to be planned but could be used a few times before it would need replacing.

And finally this one made with DIY origami stars. You can find the tutorial for the stars here
