When introducing Hygge into your home there are a few tools you will need to get you started. In my last blog post I focused on candles and their importance, but there are many other things we can use to help us achieve a feeling of comfort, warmth and relaxation. The next topic is Blankets, Throws, and Cushions.
You can use Blankets, throws, pillows and cushions in so many different areas of your home, not limited to your living zones. Introduce them to your bedroom, reading nooks and study areas to help create a hygge cosy setting.
Layering with blankets and cushions adds warmth, texture, colour and interest to a space and it also welcomes the feeling of hygge into the room. It makes a bed look and feel more inviting and a couch more comfortable.
Keep your cushions and blankets at hand, ready for when you need them, drape blankets on your couch and scatter pillows around the room. I like to use mine when reading a book, watching TV, or spending time with my family. We often snuggle up in blankets together which is a very hygge thing to do.
Now I have to confess I have a cushion obsession, admittedly I have way to many but there is something about these soft, fluffy, tactile things I can’t get enough of. Cushions help create a look and feel to a room and they are also very important finishing touches to complete a living room or bedrooms space.
Try taking some time out and curl up with a blanket and a cup of coffee or tea and get cosy with a cushion. Also try layering cushions and throws on your bed and notice how it will make it feel more inviting. You will find that by doing this you automatically set your body and mind to hygge time, which is your time to relax, slow things down and enjoying the moment.
