7 Ways to Bring Hygge into Your Home

By January 28, 2018Design, Dining, Home

Hygee (pronounced hoo-guh) is a Danish word that roughly translates to coziness. But it’s so much more than that! The word hygee is used when acknowledging a feeling or moment (alone or with friends, home or out) as cosy, charming, or special. We dug up seven ways to bring the art hygee into your world.

  1. Warm things up. Cozy up to your fireplace and put those comfy socks on. If you don’t have a fireplace, try arranging candles together in a cluster to create a similar effect. 
  2. Bring the outdoors in. Add some greenery and plant life to your space. Or try adding natural materials (stone, wood, etc.) throughout your home.
  3. Turn off the lights. Shut off those harsh overhead lights and opt for candles or table lamps instead.
  4. De-clutter. Clear out the clutter in your cozy space to help your mind relax. Take away any items that don’t bring you joy.
  5. Head to the tub! Draw a nice warm bath with relaxing scents (like lavender) and light those candles. Add a few cozy touches, like fluffy towels and quality bathmats, for some post bath comfort.
  6. Set the table. Time spent with family or friends, especially while sharing a great meal, is essential to practicing the art of hygge. So you’ll need a great dining room table with room for everyone!
  7. Keep the hot drinks coming. Tea, cocoa, or coffee – take your pick and enjoy.
