The Art of Hygge

Hygge

Many times I’ve been asked what my “style” is at home. And people guess “rustic” which is close some of the times but the other day I think I came across the perfect word to describe it, “Hygge”. Pronounced “hoo-guh”, it’s a Danish word that when very roughly translated, in a nutshell means cozy. A concept of creating warmth, connection or well being, and generally just enjoying everyday living and simple pleasures that give us comfort. So, sipping a warm cup of coffee while curled up on the couch, a luxurious fur throw on your bed, or watching snow fall outside while you sit by the fire, all hygge moments my friends. Confused yet? Well this I thought was the not so perfect way to describe how I have been decorating my home to create that “cozy, comforting feeling”. Yep I love flannel and I can’t apologize for it.

I want to create an atmosphere that anyone who walks through the front door feels like they can settle in, relax and be wrapped in a cocoon of “cozy” and feel content. And as Christmas draws near, I feel we are in the height of adding some cozy to our homes. So in celebration of finding my homestyle, I wanted to share with you some of my top picks lately for adding some holiday hygge to the home.
