Hygge Decoration: 10 Keys to a Happy Home

Hygge (pronounced as hu-ga) is a new term that has entered into the dictionary related to decoration. This Danish word means enjoying life's little pleasures and all those simple things that make us happy. An example is when we are sitting in front of a fireplace in winter with a good cup of hot chocolate.

Although Hygge is usually translated as something comfortable or welcoming, the concept really goes much further and reaches that state of well-being that we would all like to recreate in our homes. That is why this word, unknown until very recently, has become a real revolution in the world of decoration.

It is a known fact that Danish people have an enviable standard of living as well as a great taste in decoration, so much so that their style is copied throughout the world. According to different surveys developed by the ONU, they are the happiest society in the world.

What are the ten keys to make us happier in our home?

1. The main thing in all hygge decorations are people and everything around us. From there, the entire space in the rooms is defined.
2. A serene atmosphere, which has clear colours, is always more relaxing.
3. The details are important and must be taken into account.
4. Wood and natural materials make our home more comfortable.
5. Brightness is very important as the environment we live in must be filled with plenty of colours and light.
6. The solitude sought will be good for you and you should enjoy it.
7. However, it is still important to socialise as there should be an adequate balance between loneliness and social life.
8. The colour green gives us life.
9. You have to know how to enjoy the outdoors.
10. We have to learn to enjoy doing nothing from time to time by just sitting at a table or in front of the fireplace and chat with our loved ones.

If we make life more Hygge, our happiness will increase.
