They use the highest quality materials and printing for their wallpaper.

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.

ONLING THE ULTIMATE DANISH HYGGE CLOTHING…

Onling, the ultimate Danish Hygge clothing is an online shop full to the brim of all you would embrace in Hygge wear.

You immediately think natural exquisite materials which make you look and feel great.

Not only do they sell clothes but they also sell wool and run workshops and events ( although not very local for us Brits).

One particular class which has totally sold out and caught my eye was ‘knitting class for experienced knitters, learn to read English patterns’.

Onling say “We believe that the fashion industry needs to change by producing better products that last longer and are environmentally friendly.

At Önling we select fabrics that leave the smallest possible impact on the environment, as we know that a piece of clothing will not stand a chance of becoming the modern consumer’s favorite, if it is not responsibly produced.

We select the best, natural fabrics for our clothes. We only use organic cotton, we buy left-over fabrics – called deadstock – from other brands, and we incorporate sustainable fabrics like bamboo, Lyocell and fish leather into our limited collections. We only produce 200 pieces of each style, which means that you will get a unique product, when you buy Önling.

In addition to that, we have completely avoided plastic in our packaging, as we do not want to add to the plastic islands floating around in the pacific ocean. All our products are wrapped in recycled paper bags and even though this might sound like small thing, for us it is big. We have saved the environment for 70.000 polybags by now, and we are proud to take on this responsibility.”.

Lets hope others follow this lead and become as environmentally friendly as Onling.

BRINGING HYGGE WALLPAPER INTO YOUR HOME…

Wallpaper Warehouse say with hygge in mind, how should you go about selecting wallpaper that jives with your understanding of the philosophy? What should you look for in a wallpaper design to fully express coziness and relaxation.

Textured wallpaper is one of the best ways to promote hygge in your home environment. Textured walls are the ultimate cozy addition, and they make you want to snuggle up on the nearest couch and stay a while. Whether you choose a pattern or stick to a solid, textured wallpaper helps you achieve hygge in your living spaces.

 

If you look at examples of hygge-style homes in the pages of a decorating magazine, you’ll notice that most of the walls are light-colored. While most hygge designs shy away from darker colors, there is no rule that dictates a wall’s color palette. The warmth of a rich red or vivid orange can help create a hygge home, especially if those are the colors that you associate with comfort.

Remember, hygge is about what you find cozy and peaceful — your home should be an expression of you and your family, and what brings you joy.

Some of the best hygge wallpapers are those that recreate a natural look. Faux wood wallpaper can create a cabin-like coziness. Green leaves or a forest scene can have a similar affect, tying your home interior to the natural world and promoting a stress-free environment.

Are you looking for hygge wallpapers to complete your home’s cozy design? Wallpaper Warehouse has a range of products that will help you live out your philosophy, and decorate with family, friends and comfort in mind.
