Hygge is a Scandinavian principle that helps you to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere perfect for the cold weather months.
We have shifted our wardrobes and our eating habits, so why not shift the way we decorate and interact with each other in the home. Think Hygge, think neutral materials like natural wood, wool, linen, cotton etc.
A Touch of Gold
You can transform your bedroom into a retreat without spending a lot, even without spending anything. By simply changing around some of your decor items you can create a different look and feel in your home. All you are trying to do is really to create an ambience of cosiness and comfort.
Gold will bring in warmth into the space and of course it’s a nice accent color to your Christmas decor. This will also bring in hints of joy and happiness and is sure to have you and your family feeling the spirit of the holiday.
Choose bedding that is made from wool, linen or cotton. You can add contrasting texture with the use of a toss cushion which can also bring in elements of warmth and comfort into the room. Choosing a colored cushion or accent pillow can add a punch of color to bring a joy boost.
Layering your bedding is a great way to style your bed. Your pillows and duvet give your bed an extra element of softness. When you bring out more out of them than just their functional role you can establish a sense of well-being never felt before in your bedroom.
Layering art can easily contribute the feeling of a cosy retreat to your home. Layering art doesn’t mean multiple parties on your walls but you can have the art picked up in other decor items. For instance, in your bedroom you could choose a sham covering that has a pattern that can be visually appreciated as a form of art. Pick up a color from a piece of art that you may have on the wall to create a cohesive look.
