What the Hygge? Homeware Edit
If you are a bit like me and tend to jump on all of the trendy internet bandwagons you may already be aware of the of the term “Hygge”. So what is Hygge? Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga – I think) is a Danish term used to describe an atmosphere/experience – a feeling of coziness, comfort and content. For example, you might experience Hygge whilst listening to some sweet crackling vinyl, or when sipping on a big mug of tea after a long winters day. You might also experience Hygge whilst in the presence of others e.g during a deep conversation with a friend. Hygge is said to be the key to living well and is thought to be the reason that the people of Denmark are the happiest in the world.
Upon visiting Copenhagen earlier this year we were simply in awe of this amazing city. The architecture is beautiful, its people are so friendly and the food is especially fab. One thing that really stood out to me (other than the heavenly cinnamon buns) was the beautiful interiors of the cafes and eateries we visited. It seemed like each and every venue had put so much thought into the design of their space. Interestingly, your space and the design of your surroundings are thought to play a major role in experiencing Hygge. As an interiors lover, this is something I can definitely get on board with. I really do feel that my surroundings can have a major impact on how I am feeling. I am definitely a “tidy space, tidy mind” type of girl.
Whilst I have come to realise that your space is not the only contributing factor to “Hygge”, it can play a pretty big role. With this in mind, I have created a mini “Hygge Home Edit” filled with some of my favourite scandi x Lindsey Lou Blogs home bits for A/ W 2017.
