With autumn upon us, it is time to settle into the hygge life. If you have not heard of “hygge,” you are in for a treat. Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.
Here are 5 of the essentials that you will need to create the Hygge Home of your dreams.
Nothing beats curling up with a warm, fuzzy blanket at the end of a chilly day. Throw some blankets over the arms of the couches, chairs, and at the foot of the beds to create a cozy atmosphere.
2.Candles, candles and more candles
There is no such thing as too many candles when it comes to creating a hygge space. The unscented pillar candles are perfect when you want to make your home glow, but don’t want to spend a fortune on scented candles. If you want to add even extra glow, place your candles on a mirrored surface.
3. Keep things Simple
Don’t be tempted to go overboard with decorations, color, and patterns when making your space cozy for the season. Sometimes less is more. Stick with a neutral color scheme, soft fabrics and simple patterns. There is just something so beautiful about a neutral color scheme and buffalo print pillows for fall.
4. Good Company
Bring energy to your home and invite friends and family over for a game night or just invite your furry friend up on the couch for some snuggles. Spending time with the ones you love is the perfect way to end a long, Autumn day.
5. Great Reads
In today’s world, it is so common to read things off of a screen or just watch television. Sometimes though, your eyes need a break and one of the best ways to do that is to pick up something to read. This can be one of your favorite novels, a newspaper or even our magazine! Make this even more enjoyable by adding sipping a hot drink.
