Creating the perfect Hygge home


Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish word that is translated simply as cosiness.
When it's cold, wet, dull and dark outside why not give Hygge a go. Hygge is all about creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with people around you.

Baytree interiors have been helping people to personalise their own homes for many years and you can read some of their top tips on creating the perfect Hygge home



However here are some of my tips and ways to make your home Hygge: 

Make your space cosy
Think your favorite candles, pillows, soft blankets, rugs on your floor and a roaring fire in the background.

Get yourself cosy
Get into your favorite warm pajamas or your favorite thick and cosy jumper, wear thick comfortable socks or your favorite warm and toasty slippers. 

Enjoy warm and filling foods and drinks
Think porridge for breakfast with your favorite topping, soups, casseroles and stews. 
Think a hot mug of tea, coffee or hot chocolate (don't forget the whipped cream and marshmallows.) 


DIY Spa Day
Invite friends over to your cosy home and enjoy a pamper session or even if you fancy some me time run a hot bath, slap on a face mask and relax.  


Books, films, Music
Curl up with a good book or film or even play some relaxing music.


Indoor picnic
Just because its cold it doesn't mean you have to just live off stews and casseroles. Look up some new recipes, throw down a blanket and enjoy an indoor picnic with a loved one. 


Hygge is all about the simple and comfortable things in life.  It's about the ordinary moments that you sometimes take for granted. It's a feeling that you have from being warm and cosy, its about enjoying and making the most out of what you have.
