The word hygge comes from the Danish language and in its broadest concept represents a positive attitude towards life, which tends to enjoy everything that is cozy and pleasant for our existence. Because in Denmark and the Nordic countries the days are cold and short, the key idea of hygge moves strongly to the feeling of being inside our house in the most comfortable way that leads to well-being and happiness.
This concept has been derived around the world towards a style of decoration, in the field of interior design, close to an aesthetic approximated to minimalism, giving absolute priority to comfort and welcoming spaces that favour coexistence. Thus, common factors to this style is the presence of a lot of natural light, eliminating entry barriers, soft colours and the use of wood for furniture, as well as natural complements, made with cotton, wool or linen.
