IT’S TIME TO SPREAD SOME ARTIFICIAL GRANDEUR THE HYGGE WAY…

After a long and frosty winter, people are enjoying a break from the chilled weather, letting the sunshine warm up their homes and surrounding. A touch of green can make any room or commercial indoor to come alive, and also give your place a serene effect. Bringing the outdoors inside with bright floral arrangements doesn’t have to be daunting or scary. Artificial plants, flowers, and trees are vivacious and add warmth to your home décor.

We are not at all of the opinions that natural plants are no match to the silk variety, but knowing the disadvantages of real plants, and hassles of maintenance associated with it, it can really give a homeowner hard time taking care of them.

If you are the one who loves to have decorative accessories in and around your home and office and are keen to have greenery, then there can’t be an ideal option than silk plants.

Come to terms with Artificial Foliage and its Uses

To gain knowledge and access to the world of artificial plants, first, you need to brush up your skills regarding the designs of floral arrangements.  For this, you can go through home décor magazines, websites or read blogs.

Doing so will make you come across artificial plants and flowers of many styles and types. Fire retardant foliage, artificial greenery, hanging bush and grass, silk orchids, silk flower topiaries, tropical plants, containers, planters, and succulents are just a few varieties among the largest collection of these faux beauties.

Artificial Plants let you Celebrate Every Season…

When you decide to purchase artificial flowers make some rules for buying. The first thing you should know is to go over the top with your designs. Be with the trends, try not to use big roses and huge sunflowers, this makes your home dated. Small sized Hydrangeas or a Cymbidium orchid in peach and white hues always look good in any home. And the best part is they are natural looking.

A second point to remember is having good containers and planters to place these silk beauties. Silk flowers are so adaptable that they can be placed in any room of your house, the bedroom, bathroom and even the kitchen will look nice after adding some fake plant to uplift the mood.

Choose pots, containers that have been designed to place a particular plant. This way you won’t ruin the look of the decorative accessory.  Every hygge home needs beautiful vases and containers.

Silk Plants look better than Natural Ones…

The highest quality designing technique has enabled silk plants to look more natural and lifelike than real plants. When purchasing artificial flowers, trees, and plants you should always go for natural looks. Pay good attention to the texture of the leaves and petals and also to the quality of the colors.

It is this lifelike quality that has made artificial flowers a hit among the masses and the classes. You must have observed it many times that that people are so astonished that the shade under which they are standing is an artificial tree. The combination of high-quality manufacturing, design, texture, color combination and the cost of the product has totally evolved the process of keeping our surroundings beautiful.

The trend of designing and decorating the indoor and outdoor landscaping changes every year, if not every season, hence, it is important for you to know the latest trends and only then progress to decorate your home stylishly.

BRINGING HYGGE WALLPAPER INTO YOUR HOME…

Wallpaper Warehouse say with hygge in mind, how should you go about selecting wallpaper that jives with your understanding of the philosophy? What should you look for in a wallpaper design to fully express coziness and relaxation.

Textured wallpaper is one of the best ways to promote hygge in your home environment. Textured walls are the ultimate cozy addition, and they make you want to snuggle up on the nearest couch and stay a while. Whether you choose a pattern or stick to a solid, textured wallpaper helps you achieve hygge in your living spaces.

 

If you look at examples of hygge-style homes in the pages of a decorating magazine, you’ll notice that most of the walls are light-colored. While most hygge designs shy away from darker colors, there is no rule that dictates a wall’s color palette. The warmth of a rich red or vivid orange can help create a hygge home, especially if those are the colors that you associate with comfort.

Remember, hygge is about what you find cozy and peaceful — your home should be an expression of you and your family, and what brings you joy.

Some of the best hygge wallpapers are those that recreate a natural look. Faux wood wallpaper can create a cabin-like coziness. Green leaves or a forest scene can have a similar affect, tying your home interior to the natural world and promoting a stress-free environment.

Are you looking for hygge wallpapers to complete your home’s cozy design? Wallpaper Warehouse has a range of products that will help you live out your philosophy, and decorate with family, friends and comfort in mind.

A HYGGE EASTER WITH COMFORT FOOD AND GIFTS…

The Scandinavians excel in comfort – family, friends, a good atmosphere, long meals, relaxation and an emphasis on simple pleasures. They even have a word for this kind of cosiness that comes with spending quality time in hearth and home when the days are short: hygge. Trine Hahnemann is the doyenne of Scandinavian cooking and loves nothing more than spending time in her kitchen cooking up comforting food in good company. This is her collection of recipes that will warm you up and teach you to embrace the art of hygge, no matter where you live.

This gorgeous book “Scandinavian Comfort Food”, by Trine Hannemann is full to the brim with delicious easy to follow recipes. Great for anyone interested in hygge and Scandinavian food.

Another great book for anyone who prefers baking is the “Scandinavian Baking: Loving Baking at Home“, by Trine Hahnemann.  Trine Hahnemann is the leading authority on Scandinavian baking, and here she holds the hand of the uninitiated baker and leads them through the mysteries of baking bread, always with an eye to the practicalities of creating great bread at home. Here you will find no complicated recipes, or sourdough starters that need as much tending as a baby. Instead, Trine teaches you how you can fit the making of bread into our busy lives, without compromising on quality. Scandinavian crispbreads abound, as do savoury tarts and recipes from the smorrebrod. And then there’s the sweet baking — a recipe for each kind of Danish pastry you could ever wish for, a cookie for every occasion, and mouth-watering layer cakes, coffee cakes and cream buns.

My mouth is watering just writing about it.
