If you haven’t heard of this home design trend that’s been taking the world to a cozier place, it’s time to experience the Danish lifestyle in your own home. Hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”) roughly translates to creating a cozy and joyful space for you, family, and friends. It doesn’t rely on a specific season or aesthetic but definitely comes in handy during chilly months and homey holidays.
Experience hygge in your home by upgrading your common area spaces and personal sanctuaries with these soul-warming, luxurious features.
Pops of Color
The Danish home decor style traditionally, and contemporarily, relies on chic neutral colors. Add touches of green, pinks, and blues to accent the earthy tones that are your home decor basis. These can help make the gray weather outside less dull and create a cozier space without needing to overall your home design theme.
Accent colors work best with blankets, pillows, vases, coffee table decor, smaller wall hangings, holiday decorations, and dining table decor.
With shorter days and bitterly cold weather, a fireplace is a home design essential for cozy gatherings. Create a luxuriously comfortable space around your see through fireplace in your living room. Chunky knit blankets, a tea and coffee cart, plush pillows, and a few good books help create the perfect hygge setting in your home.
A transitional fireplace allows for a safe and enjoyable ambiance in multiple spaces in your home. Customize a fireplace design that works for your family’s home and lifestyle, whether it’s a wood or gas fireplace.
This goes hand-in-hand with the fireside nook. Invest in super-comfortable seating that makes your guests reluctant to leave your cozy, luxurious home. Whether that’s a reading chair next to your fireplace or a sectional sofa with built-in USB ports, transform your living area space to a hygge-worthy aesthetic. Don’t forget about the pillows, blankets, and side tables for hot drinks and books.
Transform your bathroom by upgrading to a soak tub. It’s an investment not only for your home but your relaxation and well-being on a regular basis. The curve of a soak tub is more natural and offers a deeper soak than a standard bathtub. It allows you to be in a more comfortable position while exuding an aesthetic appeal of classic luxury and sophisticated home style.
For the ultimate redesign, install a see through fireplace the sits between your bedroom and bathroom. A wood fireplace has more of a Scandinavian feel, while gas gives an effortless, ultra-modern finish to an intimate space.
Candles. Candles everywhere. In all seriousness, choose a handful of candles with similar scents (or unscented, for those with sensitivities) to decorate your living room, bedroom, and bathroom spaces. Enjoy a candlelit dinner with your loved ones while the bitter cold is left outside. Candles can turn any space in your home into an oasis.
Harness the natural sunlight through your windows and use window treatments that allow for privacy while letting copious amounts of natural light shine through. In the true mood of hygge, use a vintage design that invokes a nostalgic feel, like sheer white curtain panels with a solid-colored scheme.
