In the middle of the chaos of gift shopping and holiday parties, the one thing I can look forward to is escaping back to my warm-cozy home. In Denmark they have a word for creating or enjoying a cozy environment, called hygge. This idea hygge has been discussed in tons of books and is supposedly the reason why Denmark is known to have the happiest people. So during this holiday season it is the perfect time to take a page from the Danish lifestyle. Here are some ways to can make your home cozy as those Pinterest pictures we all drool over.
Candles, Candles and more Candles
There is nothing that creates more ambiance then candles. Since many of us on the west coast don’t have fireplaces, candles create that homey environment that will make you want to snug up to your loved ones.
Comfortable Socks and Slippers
If it is a chill night the only way to warm up is to grab those cozy socks and cute slippers to lounge around in. Opt for the softest socks you can find. Also best paired with Christmas pajamas to really create a festive mood.
Keep a throw blanket on your couch
When you get home from work or school the best feeling is falling on our couch and lounging for unreasonable amount of time. So make sure you have a cozy throw blanket to wrap yourself in. That way you will never want to get up.
If candles aren’t enough to make a place feel like magic then you need twinkle lights too. There is something about twinkle lights that transforms an environment.
Also never forget Christmas decoration and festive tree to pull the look together.
