TREND ALERT... hygge

Feature Laura Higgins

Hygge has been taking the UK by storm this winter. Pronounced hue-gah, it’s a Danish word that describes a feeling of finding happiness and comfort in life’s simple pleasures. Whether that’s enjoying coffee and cake with friends, snuggling up in a warm living room, or sinking into a fresh and cosy bed.

The key to creating this feeling is comfort. Think about materials – organic, natural materials such as wool, cashmere, linen, leather and wood; textures, such as knits, sheepskins and flannel, and colours that are calming and serene such as grey, taupe, brown and cream. Warmth is also important so cover hard floors with rugs, layer sofas and beds with throws and cushions, light the fire and add a subtle glow with low-level lighting and a collection of scented candles.
