If you haven’t already heard, the Danish concept of ‘hygge’ is quickly catching on when it comes to interior design. Transforming your home into a hygge haven is about creating interiors where you feel relaxed, cosy and comfy – think mood lighting, neutral colours and snug textures. Here's how to achieve that feng-shui feeling in your very own hygge home...
Set the tone with low-level lighting
Clever use of lighting is one of the easiest ways to hyggify your home and create a soothing atmosphere, and there is no need to overcomplicate things – just think romantic candles and low-light lamps. To achieve an extra cosy feeling, why not incorporate some mood lighting? Switch off the overhead ceilings lights in favour of low-level coloured pendants and dimmer lamps.
Layer up for a laid-back vibe
If you want to design a room where you can hibernate hygge-style, get your soft, snug fabrics at the ready. Drape warm textures – including sheepskin, wool and cashmere – on your armchairs, sofas and footstools to create an inviting, relaxed vibe, and throw in a big shaggy rug and scatter cushions to complete the look.
Neutral colours make for a relaxing room
Hygge colours tend to be neutral to create a sense of calm. Whites, creams and greys accentuate natural daylight and give off an earthy feel – perfect for your spiritual sanctuary. Play it safe with a subtle shade for your walls and you’ll soon have a fresh, clean space.
