Hygge Style: decoration focused on happiness

You may have already heard that Denmark is the happiest country in the world according to reports by the ONU. Undoubtedly, one of the main causes of this is that the Danish consider their home as an authentic temple of peace, tranquility and comfort. This is what they call the Hygge style. If you have not heard of this interior decoration style until now, then pay close attention. 

What is the Hygge Style? 

Hygge not only means a style of decoration, but it's also a way of life that takes over the home as part of itself and in which small details are the real protagonists. All this to make you feel comfortable within your home so you can end up achieving happiness from the simple pleasures you have at your fingertips, such as enjoying a cup of hot chocolate by the window while reading a good book.

The Keys to the Hygge Style 

Relaxation is the Most Important Thing 


The Hygge style is Nordic and, therefore, is based on minimalism. What's more, it is considered essential not to clutter the rooms to allow the mind to relax. In addition, comfort stands above the rest in this type of home decoration style. 

Candles and Natural Light are the Key features in Lighting 

Those who come from from Spain and Portugal are often surprised when they travel to Nordic countries and see the windows of the houses not having shutters. For the residents of these homes, natural light is one of the most precious assets. They also don't place any objects that could block the natural light near the windows. Candles are the other preferred elements within this style to make the evenings warmer and cosier.

The Art of Creating Serenity 

The key is to use soft shades on walls and textiles, such as white, beige or grey. In addition, these colours have the virtue of never going out of fashion and combine perfectly with wood. If you think the result will be too simple, there is nothing better than choosing brightly-coloured rugs and cushions. 

Do Not Forget About Nature 

The Hygge style affirms that it is essential to place plants and flowers inside the home with the purpose of creating harmony with nature. The appropriate place for this is on the window sill or, failing that, in the living room, kitchen and on the bedrooms' side tables. This translates into the creation of quieter and clutter-free spaces that will make you feel much happier inside your home. 

It is also worth bearing in mind that aromas play a key role in the Hygge style since they are considered as one of the greatest pleasures in life. So, if you're going to decorate your house now, do not forget about the fragrances either.
