Planning your interior

Embrace the cosy Danish concept at home

These Scandi-inspired styling tips will bring some hygge style to your home. Because from what we can see, this Danish lifestyle trend won’t be going anywhere fast.

As the nights draw in and the weather starts to change, thoughts often turn to creating a space at home that you’re happy to hibernate in. This is where hygge comes in.

You may have heard this word over the past year and wondered what it meant, and actually, hygge (pronounced hoo-gaa) has no direct translation. It represents the Danish culture of living well, cosiness and togetherness – and is often cited as the reason this Scandinavian country is one of the happiest in the world.

Hygge means different things to everyone. It can mean dimmed lighting, piles of blankets and your favourite podcast. Or it can mean hot chocolate and a walk in the park with an old friend.

Whatever it means to you, it’s certainly a lifestyle worth cultivating, so we’ve come up with 11 tips for bringing a little hygge into your home.
