4 ways to bring hygge into your living room
How to choose your living room furniture to make your home feel cosy.
Hygge is more than just the appearance of a space, but the feel of it. A Danish word referring to a special feeling of homeliness and cosiness, hygge describes the ideal living space. It’s the soothing warmth in your stomach that only comes when you enter a space that truly makes you feel safe and comfortable. So how can you achieve that homely feeling?
Let’s break it down further. Here are 4 ways you can make your space more hygge:
1. Scandi colour schemes
Scandinavian design is sleek and toned. Choose chalky greys, mossy greens and rich browns to achieve the ultimate Nordic nest Oh, and don’t forget a creamy beige to add a light and airy feel the room Accentuate the simplicity of the room with solid wood tables and cabinets. Our Rutendo Live Edge Extra Large Sideboard is an elegant and natural and a great example of the wooden tones you need to add some hygge to your home.
2. Keep it simple
Simplicity is key - don’t crowd the space. A clear space gives a more open feel, boosting the size of the room whilst keeping it personal. It’s also true what they say, a tidy home really does equal a tidy mind. Your space should be somewhere you feel calm and relaxed and having less bits and bobs cluttering surfaces will help you achieve this. Opt for clean lines in your furniture for a minimalist feel, with natural woods and warm tones for a less clinical and more cosy space.
3. Add soft textures
When creating a space that feels homely, bring in textured add-ons like fluffy blankets and plush pillows. It’s important to have somewhere to snuggle and minimalist doesn’t need to be cold and bare. Our Montague Jumbo Cord Corner Sofa will see to this, it’s super plush and cosy yet so sleek and simple. The perfect place for cuddling up to watch your favourite Netflix series!
