I love making the house cosy and inviting at all times of the year, but winter is very special because home is where you want to be when the weather is wet, cold, and just miserable (or is that just the UK?!)

That’s why I’ve jumped on the Hygge train (bet that would be the comfiest train I’ve ever been on lol) – as it sums up this cosiness SO well.

I’ve looked at what Hygge actually IS, and curated a collection of gorgeous Home Decor items that would add Hygge to your home this Winter – and lastly, gone through the 7 key products that will give your home Hygge with ease.

So – let’s get started, shall we?

WHAT IS HYGGE?

Let’s start at the beginning….

It’s pronounced ‘hoo-ga’ (I was saying it wrong for ages!)

& the dictionary definition is: –

“a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).

Perfect hey!

It was introduced to me a while back by a friend who bought me this book: –

I love the concept – and although the more traditional Danish style isn’t necessarily mine – I’ve wanted to embrace the feeling and concept that it conveys from then on.

So – come with me on a Winter look through of Hygge that I have curated just for you (and with my own style in mind, which may give you inspiration either for the exact same style, or for the types of things to get)….

WINTER HYGGE HOME DECOR IDEAS

KEY ITEMS TO FOCUS ON FOR WINTER HYGGE

#1 – Cushions & Throws

Whether fur, chunky knits, velvet – or another cosy fabric – layering lots on your sofa and bed will make your home look more inviting than almost anything else!

#2 – Candles

Another favourite of mine!

I love having some fake candles that are on a timer because these will be on and welcoming when I get home – lovely!

… and then, some real candles made from natural wax (it’s better for you), with a gorgeous wintery scent, are a must.

#3 – Lights

Lighting done right can make all the difference to creating a warm and cosy feel.

I love using Edison bulbs** (they are the old fashioned style), and ALWAYS get lamps and lights that are dimmable whenever possible.

#4 – Bedding

Ready to cosy up and listen to the storms and rain outside – while warm in bed?

The trick to having this is to layer different fabrics with a selection of blankets, throws and cushions alongside your duvet and pillows – so you can literally sink into your bed in the evening.

TIP – Using a fleece bedding set** would be perfect in Winter if you like the idea of more cosiness, but don’t like having lots of layers to deal with.

#5 – A Rug

I have a sheepskin (faux!) rug at the foot of my bed, and WOW – so so lovely to sink my feet into in the morning, and I fully recommend it!

Having a few rugs in your living areas as well – especially when you have hard floors – will make a massive change in look and feel for the winter.

#6 – A Fire

Light a fire if you have a real fireplace, or a fake one – and if you don’t, then you can still get the look of fire with a table top fire bowl** (yes – they exist!)..

#7 – Cosy Furniture

And last but not least – furniture can be very Hygge this Winter if you choose deep colours, rich fabrics – and a cosy feel.

I love using footstools, love seats, and other occasional items that can be brought in when the weather turns colder.
