The benefits of slowing down and enjoying simple pleasures
Hygge is a Scandinavian way of life that spreads warmth and calm. It celebrates health and happiness and can be accomplished in other ways besides just decor. Here are some ways that you can incorporate hygge into your lifestyle:
The color scheme for your home decor should never be too overwhelming when it comes to hygge.
Sticking to a neutral color palette is important when creating a relaxing space. Using pastel colors like light grays, browns, and creams will create a comfortable area for you and your guests to enjoy.
Coziness is key when it comes to hygge decor. One way to do this is by decorating with fluffy pillows and soft comforters. Snuggle up on the couch with layers of blankets and pillows for a warm place to unwind.
You can also do this by creating cozy nooks like a window bench or a love seat. These make for a great place to relax with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa for some peace and quiet.
When you think of candles, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Perhaps it’s romance, a relaxing bath or a calm night with a book. These are all things that encompass the hygge lifestyle.
The soft and kind glow of a candle cannot be replicated by anything else and should be used throughout your home to create a warm radiance.
Twinkly lights are also ideal when it comes to hygge decor. Not only are they cheery and festive, but they look great everywhere. Y
ou can use them in your bedroom, living room, or even outdoor areas. Like candles, they give off a softer light and can add a pleasant touch to your home design without being too overwhelming.
Having a fireplace is an essential element to hygge decor.
It represents warmth and togetherness and is most fun when enjoyed with loved ones.
Introducing texture to your living space is a great way to add interest to an otherwise minimalist design. Y
ou can do this by incorporating warm, natural materials like wood and wool into your decor. You can also add variety with different types of flowers for a small pop of color.
Instead of just using your bathroom for a quick shower in the morning, make it a relaxing retreat. Your bathroom should be a place you go to for rest and rejuvenation.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
