North-Europeans are credited for popularizing this lifestyle, Scandinavians have all honed the concept of hygge (pronounced hue-guh) over decades. It’s a way to combat the long, dark winters in that area of the world and can be exported to all other cold areas...or just used on all those moments when we feel the need of warmth, comfort and reassurance.

CELEBRATE COMPANIONSHIP 

Hygge celebrates a welcoming coziness that instills that feeling in yourself and others of never wanting to leave. You’ve felt hygge when your dinner guests stay into the wee hours of the night just basking in each other’s company and laughter. It’s a feeling of experiencing plenty without the stuff. Instead, it’s more about an abundance of compassion, understanding, fun and friendship. 

Though hygge is associated with the cuddly aspects of keeping warm during cold winter months, it’s a way of life even in warmer seasons when there’s joy in the air then, too. Sitting outdoors solo or with others under the expanse of a bright, starlit sky can unleash a heart-centered feeling of well-being that transcends words. Regardless of the season, slowing it down is one way to generate genuine feelings of hygge.

CELEBRATE IMPERFECTION 

Hygge interior design isn’t something you can buy or precisely plan. It’s something you can cultivate as a state of mind over time. The notion of hygge foregoes perfection. Instead, it embraces a feeling of welcome-ness in your home that goes beyond the size of your floor plan or the flawlessness of your decor. You can feel hygge in a studio apartment as well as in a sprawling five-bedroom home. It’s in older homes as well as new construction. The ability to create hygge has more to do with the intangible, and sometimes messy, qualities of lovingness and thankfulness.

The concept of hygge, however, doesn’t usually embrace overwhelming clutter. To feel hygge, you have to make it simple, light and to banish clutter in your home by gently organizing your stuff and ridding your home of things you don’t want or use.

CELEBRATE THE TEXTURES

One of the concepts of hygge has to do with raw textures. They’re a way that Scandinavians find comfort in a perpetually cold environment. There’s no shortage of color, size, style and type of pottery that can bring that hygge touch into your home, and in your outdoor rooms. For safety, choose handmade organic clay pottery only. They’re are designed to be used for drink or eat in the most healthy way

Beyond mugs and bowls, cook pots are a great way to fully enjoy your meal prep. You don’t want it complicated – this can be less relaxing. Create a hygge diet by using organic ingredients and feel how this healthy living elevates not only your health but your well-being. 

With a sense of hygge, even in your meals, you’ll know that everything will be just fine. Create the hygge atmosphere in your home by using these ideas, and you’ll always feel that cozy touch.
