The Tuesday Twist: 28 November


Have yourself a Happy Hygge Holiday

 
During the cold winter months, the Danish concept of Hygge (hoo-guh) is a welcome practice to banish the winter blues. Based on the idea of creating an atmosphere of comfort and cosiness, this concept pairs nicely with Scandi/Nordic style! 
Here are some ways to incorporate hygge into your home this winter:
Unplug: Enjoy each others company without all of the distractions of the outside world. This can be a great time to bake scrumptious festive treats with the kids
  
Add some candles and create soft lighting: We absolutely love these Antique Smoke Glass Hurricanes by Nordic House. Be sure to check out their entire range of current Candle Design Trends.
 
Cosy up with blankets and pillows by the fireplace: A key component of hygge is incorporating elements that evoke a sense of comfort, such as warm knitted blankets by a nice toasty fire. Perfect for unwinding from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.
 
Bring nature inside: This year try making your own decorations and gift tags using elements of nature!  
  
We love the idea of filling your own clear Christmas baubles to make stunning customised decorations! These make elegant gifts with that personal touch. Get inspired HERE
 ‘Scandi’ style: With a key palette of red, green and cream, your home will be a cosy inviting place to celebrate a Scandinavian Christmas.
