Have You Got ‘Hygge’ in Your Home?

Posted on Thursday, December 8, 2016

Have you heard of ‘Hygge’?  It’s the latest word of the moment and it’s particularly apt for this time of year.  Pronounced ‘Hue-ga’, like ‘cougar’, this Danish expression is all about achieving wellbeing, happiness and cosiness.  It’s all rather warm and fuzzy, which is perfect for these colder autumn evenings.

 

Rightmove has offered a few handy tips to help us all achieve a little hygge at home this season.  In their words, “Think candles in the evening (and the morning!), the smell of freshly brewed coffee, a warm blanket and a slice of cake on a Sunday evening, board games and laughter with friends.”  You get the idea? 

 

Try creating comfy, cosy spaces in your home with soft lighting, warm blankets and cushions, preferably near a window so you can sit with a nice warming cup of coffee, a good book and some big fluffy socks on while you watch the world go by. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

 

Happy hygging!
