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!
