By now all of us are all familiar with the trend of hygge – the Danish word for cosiness or comfort. The idea sits within a larger theme of wellness and people practice hygge as a way to improve their quality of life, physically and mentally.
The idea of hygge has moved into the interior design sector, with designers taking inspiration from the trend to incorporate that cosy feeling into homes and buildings. It is a look that can be achieved easily, and with a low budget, in any home. Here are a few of our top tips for how to bring hygge into your home.
This is a common theme in hygge styles homes. Tapestry style materials can be utilised in several ways. Rugs and throws are the most popular option, but you could also opt for a wall hanging. This will make bare walls seem less stark and bring a lot more warmth to the room.

The most important thing to remember when trying to create hygge in your home is that it is all about your personal wellbeing. Morten Georgsen said ‘Hygge is not a thing or something you buy, hygge is a state of mind.’ This means your home shouldn’t be a carbon copy of a magazine.
