The Danish word ‘Hygge’ describes making moments cosy and happy. In autumn we yearn for wrapping up warm, lighting candles and sharing peaceful times and there are key areas to consider to make your home Hygge-ready.
A fireplace can make the perfect focal point in your autumn interior design. Electric fires are perfect when you require heat and a real fire feel, without the need for cleaning and fuel. Hygge without the hassle!
Elsewhere in your home, make a space purely for reading or relaxing. Choose somewhere with a view and build in a window seat with plump cushions or create an enclosed area, perhaps under the stairs, to make a surprise snug that children will love.
Products featured: Farrow & Ball Plummet. The sheepskin rug and coloured cushions are available in stores only.
Wherever you create your snug use textural materials for a relaxed feel. Open brickwork, distressed timber finishes and natural materials combined with a muted palette of soft furnishings will provide a perfect retreat.
