How to Hygge and embrace the cosy Danish concept
This weekend in Melbourne is set to be decidedly wintery and although Spring is on the horizon we will be dreaming of warm, cosy interiors Danish style. Hygge (pronounced "Hug-uh") has no direct English translation but underlying the word's essence is the need to pause, breathe, think and live. It is all about stopping for a moment and appreciating the homes and lives we have.
Here are easy ways to inject a little Danish coziness and Hygge to your home and lifestyle.
- Calm colour schemes
- Lots of candles
- Snug bedding
- Natural materials and knitted accessories
- Faux fur anything
- Copper accessories
- Hot chocolate
- Roaring fire
- Reading nook
