With the unsurprisingly poor weather and the seemingly never-ending lockdown we’ve all endured over the past 12 months, staying at home has become both a necessity and a welcomed reality for most of us. We’ve learned to slow down, and to not take the simple life pleasures for granted.
Hygge is a Danish word, but more than that it’s a concept. Although it doesn’t directly translate, roughly speaking, it’s for appreciating the quality of cosiness that comes from small things such as reading a book at home in front of the fire whilst torrential rain pours down outside or lighting a scented candle and sitting in silence whilst doing literally nothing else but enjoying the solitude. It’s used to acknowledge a special feeling or moment.
We thought we’d put together an edited collection of products we feel can help to aid or add to your homeware essentials to give the hygge feeling.
