Why not let yourself be inspired by the Nordic countries where the quality of life is on a completely different level? We could envy them the peace they enjoy in their lives. Hygge is a real lifestyle and the inhabitants of this Kingdom argue that it is impossible to define it in one or two words. You have to live it!
Where did the term of hygge come from? The expression of ´hygge´ dates back to the 19th century and is derived from the Germanic ´hyggja´, which means think or feel happy. The Danish phenomenon appeared to as a kind of antidote to modern times when it is necessary to be ´in´, have a career, manage everything perfectly, with all the time pressures and stress. Hygge basically means something along the lines of: "All you need is to be calm and keep your feet warm".
Hygge actually includes everything that creates a feeling of happiness and joy. For example: to light luxury candles in the evening and watch sunset on the horizon, cozy up in the blanket with a cup of hot chocolate or read a book by the fireplace.
Hygge style of your home may be achieved simply by adding a shaggy rug, warm-coloured patterned blankets, decorations from natural materials or decorative aromatic candles which will harmonise with the luxurious heart-warming atmosphere.
