Hygge – The Design Trend You NEED in Your Home

Hygge is the home design trend you have been waiting for! You may have seen this trend popping up all over your social media, but what does it mean exactly? Pronounced “hoo-ga,” this Danish way of life is all about enjoying the simple things in life.

Loosely, Hygge translates to “coziness,” but it is much more than that. It is a lifestyle as much as it is a design trend. To truly experience Hygge, you must let yourself relax, be present and thankful, and indulge in the little things that make you happy. Reading your favorite book on a rainy day while under your comfiest, fluffiest blanket, slippers on and candles lit is the perfect example of Hygge.

There are many ways to achieve Hygge through design, many of which you may have already included in your home.

Hygge Neutral Colors

Stick to a neutral color scheme that allows your mind to be calm.

Hygge Candles

Utilize candles to create a soft, flickering presence throughout the room.


Opt for sheepskin instead of loud, patterned area rugs.

Hygge String Lights

Instead of the harsh glare from ceiling lights, hang string lights to create a subtle glow throughout the room.

Pillows and Blankets

Make sure you have plenty of fluffy pillows and soft blankets to snuggle up in.

Hygge Seating

Instead of modern, small sofas and chairs, include plenty of seating for friends and family to join you.

Hygge Fireplace

A flickering fireplace is a key ingredient to fully experiencing Hygge.
