Cozy Comfy Hygge Style
Hygge has arrived on our shores, thanks to the Danes. And what, you might be asking, is Hygge (pronounced hoo-guh). It’s a Danish term defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” The word is actually related to the English word “hug”. The Danes have long embraced this as a lifestyle which helps them cope with those long dark winters. And by the way, the Danes are considered the happiest people on the planet.
The “hygge” lifestyle is now being embraced everywhere and is becoming a major trend in everything from fashion to furnishings. Think fire places, cashmere blankets, candles, good food, wine, friends gathering together to “hygee” and you get the picture. Hey we’re all for comfort everything and enjoying the simple things in life. So here are a few “hygee” items that will get you in the mood.
