If you haven’t heard the term ‘Hygge’ (pronounced ‘Hooga’), then it’s time to discover how to do Scandinavian style. This word has come to represent true comfort during the coldest, darkest and wettest months of the year. Here are our top tips for revolutionising your Autumn Hygge style, as well as some colour and style advice for finding the perfect blanket for you or your loved ones.
Let’s dive into the details as to how the Hygge is done:
1. Opt for soothing lighting (think candles, fairy lights or soft side lamps).
2. Choose natural textiles and swath your chairs, sofa and bed with throws and blankets.
3. Create a space purely for unadulterated relaxation.
4. Indulge in warming, comforting (healthy) food – think stews, Shepherd’s Pie and Fish chowder.
Now that you’re fixed up for a cosy Autumn, it’s time to uncover the perfect Hygge worthy throw for your and gift receivers’ homes and otherwise shivering shoulders.
