How to Hygge-ify Your Apartment

January 11, 2019

If you’re on top of current design trends, then you’ve probably heard of hygge. Of course, calling it an interior design trend wouldn’t be entirely accurate. “Hygge” refers to the Danish lifestyle, which focuses on finding contentment and happiness in simple things. Translated into interior design speak, hygge focuses on creating comfy spaces to share with those you love. Here are a few ways to bring hygge to your home.

  1. Add the cozy accents. Flickering candles and chunky, cozy throw blankets practically ooze hygge. Rich textures, like velvet and soft knits, can also up the cozy factor in your home. 

  2. Keep it neutral. Instead of filling your home with a hodgepodge of bold hues, hygge dictates that you should stick to a more neutral color palette. Bring on the creams, grays, and whites to create a space where you can’t help but snuggle up and enjoy a good book.

  3. Tidy up. Hygge-ified homes are cozy, but they’re not cluttered. Keep everything in its proper place and invest in some organizational tools (like baskets and hooks) if your abode needs some help in the tidying-up department. Then you’ll be able to fully enjoy the laid-back vibes that emanate from every hygge-inspired home.
