The long winter nights are approaching, where better to appreciate life’s simple pleasures and hunker down, than in a hygge style living room. They are after all designed with ‘coziness’ in mind, a place to shelter you from the cold weather outside. In this post, I will show you some wonderful hygge living room ideas to help you develop your ideas.
Listen to this post…
The whole hygge decor concept is based around ‘coziness’ and minimal living…but comfortably. It has its roots in Scandinavian design, specifically the Danish concept of design, and is in response to the brutal climate. It is this aspect that really helps you understand a hygge home and why a cozy space is treasured.
How do you make your living room idea into hygge lifestyle design? The are are a few concepts that we can work with which take your interior design, add a little ‘scandi’ magic dust, and deliver a wonderful cozy living environment that is full of warmth and Scandinavian style.
When it comes to floors, we work with wood flooring…carpets are not really a part of Danish culture…big faux fur rugs are a big thing here in Denmark. It’s not surprising given the natural resources available in this country.
The living space of hygge interiors is designed to be cosy. Good design is always valued and is obvious when you look at Scandinavian furniture design. However, a key aspect of this is the comfort and the way it makes you feel. This is why most aspect of the design have a cozy element to it. You will see plenty of throw pillows, a cozy blanket or two, scented candles and natural plants. Your hygge home decor is all about comfort and the cozy way of life, there is no ‘cold’ design aspects to be seen here.
One of the main aspects of hygge decoration is soft furnishings, and plenty of them…you cant have enough cushions, a throw blanket and pillows. Candles, books and other quaint little items are all key to putting together a hygge living room look, essentially creating a cozy nook. Lighting…lots of little fairy lights rather than a single light source matched with a neutral color palette, even plain white walls.
It’s not just the living space too. The same ethos extends to your dining room, the kitchen, and even your bathroom. We have also covered hygge bedroom ideas in great detail too…it’s no wonder people cant get enough of these design ideas.
