Surely you are listening to it everywhere and it does not stop being clear what is that of the hygge decoration. To understand us, this word is Danish, and according to many, it is neither more nor less than secret of Danish happiness. Interesting, right? It can be translated as “cozy”, although many say that it is rather a total attitude to life. Anyway, it has an effect, because Denmark is considered the happiest country in the world. Today we show you the keys to decorate according to the Danish Hygge.
To achieve decorating in this style we must take into account essential aspects such as lighting or textiles. But there are also others that we may not take into account, such as enabling our house to enjoy it with our visitors.
Betting on natural materials
It is not new and we will not tire of saying it, the wood gives automatic warmth. It is not surprising that in most of the Danish housing (if not all) we will find wooden floors. But also, they have no problem in using wood for other areas of it. We can see it in different places. from wooden beams to kitchen countertops. Discover the power of wood and take advantage of it.
An enveloping illumination
We must bear in mind that it is a country with few hours of natural light. For this reason, in addition to prefer big windows without curtains or very thin fabrics so that the light passes, the artificial light is of the most important thing. The hygge prefers enveloping and warm light, for example, the LED lighting. But in addition, this style defends the use of candles. Place candles in the bathroom, hall or living room, and if you have an opportunity, do not hesitate to place a fireplace. Fire is another of those elements that makes stays more pleasant.
Hygge decoration in the bedroom
The hygge beds they must be, above all, appetizing. A fluffy bed will invite better to the rest than a cooler bed with thin and little bulky textile. Options such as XXL knitted blankets and bedspreads, those that became so fashionable. Also fill the cushion bed, they can work perfectly.
Have the books at hand
There is a note to highlight, more than half of the Danes read regularly. In Spain, we find less hopeful figures, the same happens with other countries in Latin America. Maybe this is also part of his secret to be happy. So why not have the books at hand? Bet on libraries, whether in work shelves, adapting them to any space, no matter how difficult it may be, or with furniture of standard sizes.
