Stick to a Neutral Color Scheme
Hygge is all about comfort and relaxation, so ensuring that your home is harmonious and peaceful in important. Sticking to a neutral color scheme is an excellent way to create a cozy atmosphere. Use pastel colors such as soft gray, blue, green, and lavender, and use creams and browns for large pieces of furniture, rugs, throw blankets, and pillows.
Create a Cozy Atmosphere
Comfort is essential for a hygge-inspired home, so bring in the cozy blankets, pillows, and soft comforters. Spend a lazy day snuggled on the couch with a fluffy blanket, or invite some friends over for a fun night of games and food and bring out the floor pillows and cozy rugs. Don’t forget to add plenty of candlelight for softness and ambiance. If you prefer to not use candles, try adding a few lamps and twinkle lights to your space for a similar effect.
Add Plenty of Texture
Texture might not be the first thing that you think of when planning to create a hygge home, but plenty of wood, stone, and floral elements will make your home feel even cozier. Add some rugs to a bare floor, some fresh flowers to your coffee table, and some beautiful bookshelves for a comfortable and eye-catching design.
Make a Fire
The hearth is the central part of a Danish home and where everyone gathers on cold and snowy winter nights. Having a fireplace to enjoy with your friends and family will be sure to be the crowning part of your hygge-inspired home, but don’t despair if your home doesn’t have a hearth! You can still create a cozy home by lighting several candles or even displaying a fireplace video on your computer with the soothing crackles and pops in the background.
Enjoying the Danish way of life with your friends and family is a great way to unwind and make lasting memories together.
