I’m sure by now everyone knows what Hygge means but for someone novice to this beautiful word here are seven ways to make your home Hygge style.
Try to add natural elements like wood, wool, stone and plants to your rooms for warmth.
Create a cosy corner to add a cosy nook, where you can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and a good book.
Add candles, real or fake, but lots and lots of them.
Enjoy books, from the latest best seller to the Nordic diet.
Turn your bathroom into your own spa with candles, warm lights, heating up high and a bath caddy to hold your glass of wine and book.
Create a beautiful simple cosy bedroom without clutter, clean and white with an accent of colour of your choice.
Fill your house with treasured memories of times gone by as or add a Hygge statement piece of artwork.
When your home is clean and tidy, all your stress and tensions fly out of the window. When it’s cluttered and messy you feel really stressed out.
Don’t let the idea of sorting out a room will make you feel more anxious as it will have the opposite effect. Maybe first try with your bedroom doing some simple things like flipping your mattress and moving a few bits around. Maybe even try sleeping in another bedroom to see if you prefer it.
Buy some new bedding and pillows to completely change the feel of the room and clear all the clutter. Repaint the walls in white to make it feel bigger and add more light by changing the bulbs or putting some romantic fairy lights across the bedhead.
Pop in a couple of plants and sort out all your drawers. You will be amazed at how great you will feel when you have finished it. Once you can see and feel the benefit of finishing your room start in another room and do the same.
