Hygge’s more than a trend - It’s a way of life

So what is Hygge? Hygge is the curious little word that is, and always has been, ingrained in Scandinavian life.
With no direct translation, it’s often described as ‘cosiness’ but to us, it’s so much more. Hygge is a state of mind; sharing and appreciating simple pleasures in our own intimate and cosy settings.

Below we offer you examples and tips of Hygge throughout the home, helping you bring a little Hygge to your space.

Living room Hygge

In your living room, Hygge invites quality time with family and friends, cocooned in soft textures while sipping coffee by the warm glow of candlelight.


Dining room Hygge

Intimate conversations, good food, wine and loved ones around the dining table characterise Hygge in the dining room.


Danish interior designer, Gitte Kjær

For me, Hygge isn’t simply a mood created for family gatherings, birthdays or other big events; it is an essential part of our home and the way we live in it. It informs my choice of colour and materials, keeping the look timeless, relaxed and above all cosy.

Outdoor Hygge

Outdoor Hygge is all about embracing happiness, invigorating your senses and focusing on enjoying time with loved ones in nature.


Bedroom Hygge

Imagine a slow, Sunday morning with breakfast in bed and a book to curl up with afterwards. That luxurious feeling of cosiness is at the heart of a Hygge bedroom.
