You’ve probably heard the word ‘Hygge’ (pronounced ‘who-guh’) bandied around quite a lot in the last year or two in everything from interior design magazines, in shops, on the TV… there have even been best-selling books written about it, which may still leave you wondering what it really means…

Hygge is a Danish word that dates back to the 1900s and is used to describe a feeling of pure contentment and bliss, achieved through appreciation of the simple pleasures in life, but it’s been adopted as a new trend in interiors, too. Whilst Hygge is a well-established part of Danish culture it’s quite a new concept here in the UK but you’ve probably already been practising Hygge without even knowing it. Entertaining good friends with a glass of wine, lighting some candles to create a relaxing atmosphere and serving some delicious snacks – that’s Hygge. Snuggling up with your favourite soft blanket, making a fire and wearing your cosiest socks all count towards achieving that gorgeous feeling of relaxation, pure bliss and contentment.

Lighting plays a hugely important part in Hygge, especially if you consider how dark and long the winters in Scandinavia are. For this reason, opt for plenty of candles as opposed to lots of bright lighting if you want to recreate this atmosphere in your home. Add in lots of soft knitted fabrics, gentle twinkling lighting, snuggle up with a good book in your favourite chair and a real fire and you’ll be ready to inject some Hygge into your dark evenings.
