What is hygge? Pronounced ‘Hoo-ga.’ Hygge is a Scandinavian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. In my area we have many Scandinavian people, they have always decorated in this way. But it has now become very popular in the United States. But the thing is, is hygge is not just a home decor look, it is a lifestyle. the Scandinavians in the area live this lifestyle. They love visiting with their coffee and tea. Making charcuterie boards for their guest is a must. The way they live is cozy and inviting. In Scandinavia the Winters are long and dark so candles were a way to bring light into the home, as well as give the home comfort. This is a Hygge Lifestyle Guide, to get the Scandinavian look and feel into your home.
