Over the holidays everyone wants to create that hygge feeling in their home. There is no better way to achieve this than to create a hygge corner, or as the Danes call it a hyggekrog. It can become the epicenter of hygge in your home.
Here is a recipe to creating the perfect hyggekrog in your home:
A Small Nook or Corner of A Room
The space does not need to be big, but ensure it is dedicated to hygge only. You want to keep it simple and avoid any potential for clutter.
A Big Chair!
A big chair that hugs whomever gets the pleasure of sitting in it. Sink down into the deep cushions of the Queen chair, and relax or read in style. The gently curving back and elevated arms offer extra comfort.
A Cozy Blanket
Warm yourself up with layers of soft and cozy blankets to wrap yourself and your loved ones in.
For extra comfort, make sure you have comfy squishy pillows to melt into for your hygge dreams! To add some Christmas feeling, update your pillow covers in a holiday theme.
Soft lighting with warm or cool colors can give a flattering soft glow to your hygge corner and it represents the holiday mood! You can also add candles. Candles can bring coziness and warmth into your space, especially those with comforting scents.
Imagine how sweet it could be to enjoy the cosiest season of the year by slowing down and having fun with some hygge activities. Reading, knitting, story telling, reflecting on the day, or better yet, cuddling and napping!
Remember hygge is all about simplicity, returning to basics. So don’t over do your hygge corner, make it a place that encourages relaxation and unwinding.
Now sit back and enjoy!
