A soft handmade rug is perfect for a thousand things: you lay on it to play, you can massage your feet, you can look at your favorite movies, you rediscover the board games. Choose it in bright colors so as to give a touch of color to the environment, preferably in soft wool.

A warm plaid
Plaid in soft wool, fake fur or if you are skilled with knitting, create the covers by yourself. Distribute it in every corner, over an armchair, a pouf or even more than one on the sofa to create a warm and welcoming environment.
Wood and wooden decorations
Using wood to decorate is the most effective way to give life to the Scandinavian style. Even if there is no fireplace in the house, natural materials heat the environment. A pile of small trunks, glass vases full of pine cones and acorns or branches covered with berries are perfect for decorating a house like Copenhagen!
Raw wood table
A table made of raw wood and an element that cannot be missing in a hygge house. With that vintage touch you can combine it with different styles, materials and accessories: you can match bright colors, plastic, steel or wooden chairs, modern and antique cutlery…

If you have a fireplace, there is nothing more hygge, but if there is no fireplace, recreate the effect. Beautiful candles in shades of white, cream and beige, in different shapes and heights, perhaps laid on a wooden or terracotta tray, to be placed in a niche, on a shelf or a low table are enough. The light they emanate is different from the warmest of the lamps and has the effect of immediately warming the room…
A selection of good books, your favorite armchair and a warm light to create your ideal reading corner. The hygge chair par excellence? A chaise longue or an armchair with a nice pouf to rest your feet on, strictly upholstered in soft fabric and with wooden feet; a classic of the hygge style!

In the small spaces, divide the living area into small corners. New cushions are an investment that immediately makes the room warmer and more intimate. Set two or three colours to play with. You can choose cushions in two neutral tones and others with a geometric pattern in contrasting colors. Two square and two rectangular cushions to overlap will be perfect. Two large cushions will also be useful, especially if you have children or teenagers at home. Here are our ideas!

In a hygge house you can not miss a beautiful cat with which to share the sofa and the plaid. But also for the little ones with four legs: an old stool turned in reverse and a pillow covered with a sweater that you no longer use will become a beautiful kennel in Nordic style. Cuddles assured!
