Hygge in your Home

via UGG

Hygge (Hue gah) The Danish concept of wellbeing is created when enjoying good food and drink with friends and family in a warm, welcoming, cozy space.  It is more of a feeling, a mood, rather than a specific set of circumstances.  The simple chic of a fuss free environment that is well organized and designed for maximum comfort is the hallmark of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.  We could take a page out of the Scandanavian playbook.

There is a reason why Nordic people are considered the happiest people on earth even in the face of harsh winters, much of which is spent in darkness.  G-d that sounds bleak!




There was a banishing of ornate interiors, unlike Europeans, the Scandinavian people take a more practical "less is more'' approach.  Clean lines with a sophisticated appeal, functionality and creating intimacy are priorities.  Accessories or accent pieces are kept to a minimum, but they must have weight or substance.  The Nords understand that clutter must be kept at bay and possessions should serve you in some way.

If you want to add a little hygge to your home, here's how ~

Add candles
Add texture
Make sure each room is a sanctuary
Keep it simple, its not about excess




Higgle is about a quality of life.  It feels like a warm hug and smells like cocoa.

Hygge is a mindfulness; living each day well, slowing down, enjoying the ride, being present, having a cup of tea, having close connections.  Scandinavian people really know how to embrace Living Beauty-FULLY, plus they do have the added benefit the amazing Aurora Borealis.

Now if you'll excuse me, I must rush out a buy a sheepskin!
