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.
I love knitting and usually have something on the go and with knitted throws and cushions in fashion, it’s easy to knock something up to create warmth in your Hygge room.
I have a lovely book which has some lovely patterns for your home called ‘Simple knits for easy living’, by Erika Knight (see above, available from Amazon) which has superb pictures to inspire you and easy to follow patterns.
There is a brilliant website called Cushions and More, which has patterns and details on every type of cushion you could ever think of, from pincushions to floor cushions. Some of my favourite ones at the moment are –
This fab knitted one above is for sale on Ebay and is 40cm square, don’ t you just love it?
These are just amazing and are hand made on Etsy.
This is another one from Etsy and reminds me of how you can cut up an old jumper and make it into a cushion cover. The pattern is on Pinterest.
Or you could try this one made from a fringed scarf which also is on Pinterest.
Here are some of my favourite images of what I think relate to a Hygge Christmas.
