Embrace the Scandinavian Lifestyle with Hygee
Today’s lifestyle gurus are embracing a new concept which is sweeping the world, one that aims to provide an individual’s life with a feeling of contentment and well-being.
Hygge (pronounced Hoo-ga) is a Danish word and represents feeling of being cosy, joyous and special.
Hygge is categorised as a feeling and will mean something different to everyone. It may be cuddling up on the sofa with a loved one, indulging in your favourite food with guests or surrounding yourself with pleasing ambiance.
Although Hygge is a feeling and is not something you can buy, a relaxing home full of your favourite colours and decorations that improve your mood is a good place to start.
Although Hygge is not necessarily about your décor it is an important part of creating the correct ambiance that provides that cosy, homely feeling that brings joy and happiness.
Hygge will be represented to individuals in diversely different ways but colours provide the backdrop to creating your own tranquillity. You may wish to add warm rich colours to your walls or you are more relaxed with a neutral pallet of nudes and pastel shades. Whatever colours give you that contented feeling wherever you are relaxing are the right colours to help give the feeling of Hygge. There is no limit to the colour pallet available in both paint and wallpaper and here we have selected some of our favourites.
Simple flickering candles and relaxing fragrances are considered the most fundamental Hygge moments when creating that special place to relax and we stock a selection of Designers Guild candles and diffusers that will replace harsh lighting and provide an aromatic atmosphere to your special place.
Soft furnishings, scatter cushions, curtains and throws will all contribute to that happy, cosy feeling and our team of Interiors advisors are waiting to assist you in choosing the best accompaniments for your decoration to create your very own special feeling.
It is proven that having created a happy, cosy and special place to live, eat and sleep, the rest of your life will follow suit. So, curl up in a comfy chair and have a browse at our wide range of wallpapers online and see if you can begin to picture your own personal Hygge.
