Creating warmth, cosiness and a sense of hygge in your home is not just something to think of on the darkest winter days – after all we do live in the UK! Last Autumn our lovely friend Amanda over at The Online Stylist perfectly summed how to create a sense of warmth in your home without relying on just whacking up the heating!
The Danes created hygge because they were trying to survive those long cold and dark nights and the undefinable feeling of ‘hygge’ was a way for them to find moments to celebrate or acknowledge and to break up the day, months or years. With so many cold, dark, days, the simple act of a candle glowing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a home cooked evening meal with friends can make a huge difference to one’s spirit and should therefore be celebrated.
What is the cosiest room in your home?
How do you keep yourself feeling warm?
Blankets, cushions and cashmere socks are an absolute necessity as far as I’m concerned! In terms of feeling the warm and fuzzies, indulging in these things forms part of my #elevatetheeveryday mantra and I consider them all part of life’s simple pleasures.
Always candle light in as many rooms as possible and embracing the Danish Hygge concept wholeheartedly. We’ve recently put a basket at the end of the sofa with all of our slippers in which is both useful for cosy toes and looks lovely too.
