I’ve written about Spring and Summer Hygge, but my FAVORITE time to create a Hygge home is in the Fall.
As for winter? Hygge is what gets me through our long brutal winters in here in the Midwest.
What is Hygge?
First of all.. let’s get the pronunciation down. It is pronounced “hoo-ga”…I know, I know, it is not the most elegant-sounding word, but I have so grown to love this word!
Hygge is a Danish term that is defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.”
If you know me well, you know I am all about doing that little bit of extra to create a special atmosphere!
My friends and family tell me I’m quite good at it, and I adore doing it. It is just in my nature.
I naturally and automatically want to create a homey, cozy, and comfortable feeling for the people that I love when they come into my space.
I also am very intentional about using these spaces to slow down and be present and purposeful when I am alone, too.
