CREATING THE RIGHT LIGHTING HYGGE STYLE…

Creating the right lighting in a room gives it atmosphere, but putting the lighting in the wrong place can change a room dramatically. Here are some examples of how lighting can create a Hygge style atmosphere.

You couldn’t get anything more cosy than this picture which shows just how much candles can create such an atmospheric light.

I just love these set of three lights over the table which will simply send the light beaming down on your food but still keep the room looking cosy. Washing up in your kitchen can also be more enjoyable with the right lighting like the picture below.

By having just one simple big light like this one means it will still create a cosy room atmosphere but if you want to read something then you can sit directly underneath it and do not need further lighting in the room.

How cosy is this bathroom with the candles. No matter what lights you have in a bathroom the only lighting when you are having a relaxing bath has to be candles, real or false they will all give the same glow.

A simple light hung down like these two pictures is perfect to create a cosy ambiance in your bedroom. You can add a string of fairy lights over or near your bed like the picture below. But if you want a little bit more light but the darker the bedroom the cosier it will look.

Make your room hyggelig!

Hygge, Eh?

As you know, Anne and I are both exchange students in Canada. When I arrived at my accommodation, my room included a bed, a desk, a cupboard and a mirror – everything I needed, just not very cozy. I knew I needed to make it more welcoming – a place I could call home for the next 4 months. At the same time, I couldn’t invest a lot of money, since I wouldn’t be taking anything back home with me…

Here are a few tips I would like to share with you, that have made my room absolutely hyggelig and that you can easily apply too!

  1. Buy a plant – it will freshen up your air and add some color!

  2. Add some magic to your life with fairy lights (I bought mine here)

  3. Use boxes as shelves or as a nightstand (walmart)

  4. Have pictures of your loved ones everywhere!
