HOW TO BRING HYGGE INTO YOUR HOME

Looking to refresh your home in time for spring?  Hygee (pronounced HOO-GAH) is the Danish phenomenon, that has been sweeping the nation and helping us to embrace the things that make us feel cosy and warm. It’s about making everyday moments more beautiful and being aware of these special moments, whether it be snuggling up with a good book by the fire or spending quality time with your nearest and dearest. The trend translates perfectly in our homes through selecting home accessories which makes us feel comfortable and happy.

Here are a few simple ways to bring Hygge into your home:

 

Texture, texture and more texture

 Adding texture through accessories and fabrics is a great way to add warmth to a room.
