why you should understand & embrace hygge


Hygge is a word that has been popping up a lot in discussions of home decorating, particularly for the fall and winter.

So what is it?:

"A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture)" from Oxford Dictionary.

"a Danish word for a quality of cosiness (= feeling warm, comfortable, and safe) that comes from doing simple things such as lighting candles, baking, or spending time at home with your family:" from the Cambridge dictionary.

It has become a popular trend in home design. This concept of designing your spaces to encourage this cozy feeling seems abundantly appropriate for Canadian winters.

So how can you incorporate hygge into your home?:

• Invest in some great candles. They contribute to ambiance and the scent of your home.

• Plush blankets and pillows. Create comfy spots for reading, napping or watching tv.

• Get some amazing towels and bath products.

• Get yourself some great loungewear.

Why might you want to embrace this? Today's world is fast paced and stress and anxiety are affecting people at an epidemic rate. Hygge encourages you to enjoy the small things and enjoy some downtime in a hectic world.
