HYGGE THE FREE WAY…

Hygge the FREE way.

The old-fashioned saying ‘The best things in life are free’, can be achieved if you want to change your home into a Hygee home.

According to Meik Wiking the author of The Little Book of Hyggehygee is humble and slow, it is choosing rustic over new, simple over posh, and ambience over excitement. simplicity and modesty are central to hygge’.

You can soon change your style of home into a hygge home. Go through each of your rooms and write down how you would change it, what little things might make it more hygge, what accessories or furniture you want to finish it the hygge way.

Home is where the heart is, you can transform a room with the simplest of items which you could get for FREE or for very little by checking your local FREE pages or popping to your local car boot. If you just enter what you want into Google with for free after it you would be surprised what comes up.

Summer hygge means more outdoors so look at your furniture outside and think of ways you can transform them into something more cosy with simple throws. Add candles and the right lighting and carry the lights on into the patio door to extend your room. Summer is probably the easiest time of year to enjoy hygge.

HOW TO ENJOY A HYGGE LIFESTYLE…

Nearly every paper that I pick up today has at least one article on HYGGE and how it is influencing people all over the world to enjoy this type of lifestyle.

Being happy and content with your life is how the Danish lead their everyday life which isn’t really practised in Britain, and yet most of us would love to lead this way of life.

So, how can you enjoy a Hygge lifestyle? Well, it all starts off with what you have around you. Are you surrounded by clutter, is your room full of bits and pieces that you keep meaning to go through? If so then start by going through all your clutter one room at a time. Don’t try and clear every room straight away as you will probably give up immediately. Work on one room at a time and then you will see how wonderful you feel with the decluttered regime.

Now, look at your colours. What colours are in your room, could it do with a little more light or a complete make-over. First things first, look at what is letting the light into your room. What sort of curtains or blinds do you have up? What sort of lighting have you?

These simple steps of changing a rooms curtains/blinds and lighting could completely alter the theme of your room. So much so that you might not need to give it a complete make-over you may be quite happy with the paint colour or decide to just change one wall to a lighter colour. If you look at any book or website on Hygge you will immediately see how the right colours and lights can change a room completely.

Finish the room with the right accessories. It’s amazing how accessories even down to the right plants can completely change the look of your room.

Some of my favourite websites with Hygge living ideas are Pinterest, Houzz and Hyggestyle.
