Along the list of trends for home décor and room atmosphere through the years, such as “Feng Shui” and feeling “good vibes”, the hot-button trend for 2018 is this Danish lifestyle or state-of-being: it’s called Hygge.

Pronounced “hue-guh”and not “hoo-gah”, Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as “cozy, charming or special.”

Hygge is used to describe more of a feeling of being relaxed and in the present moment, than the way a room looks; but when decorating if you find yourself wanting a place to get cozy, then using some pointers from the Hygge mindset will transform your home into a cozy refuge.

How to Hygge:

  1. Create a safe space for you and your friends
  2. Be present with yourself and the ones you are with
  3. Stay equal and in harmony
  4. No drama! Leave it at the door
  5. Be thankful
  6. Partake in simple pleasures
