What does hygge mean?
Hygge! Try saying that 5 times in a row! This unique term is pronounced as “hoo-ga” and is defined by The Oxford English Dictionary as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being, regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture.”
Overall, this term is used to describe a sense of comfort, charm, simplicity, and community. It’s the perfect theme for the holiday season! And, it’s such a fun word to say!
Try incorporating some Hygge design ideas within your home this season by adding simple light-toned furniture, natural wood accents, chunky knitted blankets, soft lighting, warm scented candles, and some tough yet simple plants!
