Hygge – the art of appreciating the moment…
Hygge is the latest ‘it’ word in interior design trends, especially
in the colder months. It’s a Danish word that actually has nothing at all with
decorating, but rather is a feeling or consciousness of ‘the moment’, and
appreciating the beauty of being mindful and living in the ‘present’. Hygge is a word that
has been used for a loooong time, but has only recently become trendy with the
release of Hygge lifestyle & interior design books and products.
When translated to and used in the world of interiors, it
refers more to furniture and soft furnishings we use that help us get comfy
& cosy, and enhances the time we spend with our loved ones in our home. Hygge homeware and furniture is Scandi-stylish, but highly functional and comfortable all at once! From
lighting to mugs, curtains to art work, almost anything you can buy for your
home can have a Hygge twist. After working with Wayfair.co.uk recently, on an autumn home updates post, I realised just how amazing Hygge friendly their online
store is, and wanted to share with you some of my favourite pieces for creating
the perfect Hygge home!
