If you have never heard of the term Hygge, it may be because the word comes from Scandinavia and there is no English translation for the term. The Hygge (hue-gah) your home, you are making the space warm and cozy. The term means togetherness, or coziness. It is all about creating a space that is warm and inviting for friends and family. As fall approaches, many people are looking for ways to add a little more hygge to their home. Bill Engler Painting is here to share some tips that will help you give your home a hygge makeover this fall.
Choose Warn, Neutral Paint Colors
When you are trying to Hygge your home, the color palette you choose shouldn’t be overwhelming. You want all the colors that you choose for the room to work together in harmony and create a feeling of balance. Using lighter colors like pastels, browns and grays will help those that enter the space feel relaxed and comfortable.
Decorate with Texture
Texture has a great influence in the way your home feels. When choosing the right textures, choose wood, wool and other cozy, warm accents. You should also consider adding some flowers to give a pop of color or other items that would add some visual interest to the space while still maintaining the cozy décor you are looking for.
Start a Fire in the Fireplace
Nothing screams cozy like a fire in the fireplace. Gathering around the fire with your loved ones is good for the soul. Whether you are building a fire inside or outside, you can feel the coziness of fall when you are enjoying it with those you love.
Add Hygge Light Fixtures
Choose warm lighting when you are planning your space. Light from candles creates a soft, warm glow that is simply irresistible. You can get the same effect from a string of twinkly lights hanging from the mantle as well. These two types of lighting give your home that extra warm ambiance lighting that creates a charming feeling.
Comfort Design Furniture
Stay clear of modern style furniture that doesn’t allow many people to gather in the space. You want to have ample seating that is covered with comfort; like pillows, soft blankets and anything else to make it feel comfortable and inviting. Stay away from bright designs and loud textures that will interrupt the hygge atmosphere you are trying to create.
