Find out how to mimic this aesthetic in your own home in today’s post!
Focus on Cosiness
Comfort and warmth are two of the most important aspects of the Hygge trend, so don’t be shy with pillows, covers and fairy lights and create a bedroom so comfortable that you will never want to leave it.
Keep it minimal
Decluttering can also be a form of comfort and the Hygge aesthetic is all about keeping only what you need and love! Reorganize your space and make a selection of everything you want to keep to create a truly warm space.
Trying a lighter color palette will help lighten up your home and make it more warmth, thus immediately granting it a Hygge feel. Dark shades are known for being not only sophisticated, but colder as well, so go for beige, white, cream and even pastels to create a calm and relaxing space.
Go for pieces made of natural wood, straw, stone and other materials to have your Hygge room be a connection with nature and the outside world. Use plants for decoration and don’t be afraid of getting weave baskets and other natural pieces.
Candles are one of the pinnacles of Hygge, as they are a natural source of intimate lighting that will surely create a comfortable and warm atmosphere. Bonus points if you use scented candles with relaxing scents.
