Hygge Style: Chic Nordic Dwelling Tips for a Cozy Winter Home

Interior trends may come and go, but some approaches to home decor just make sense. When the temperature drops, the Danish coziness concept of Hygge (pronounced "hoo-guh") becomes especially enticing. While Hygge became a global trend years ago, it's actually an abstract way of life that you can make your own. It’s all about achieving a state of comfort and well-being. This winter, discover some of our favorite hygge-inspired blankets, pillows and accents in comfy earth tones and neutrals — and prepare to convert your space into a soothing Nordic-inspired sanctuary.

Cozy Candles

Nothing sets a soothing mood like flickering candlelight. Adding a candle to a nightstand, coffee table or any corner of your home can help cultivate the feeling of Hygge. As an added bonus, you'll be indulging in aromatherapy, too.

Plush Pillows

Accent pillows are an inviting addition. But apart from encouraging naps, they're also a unique way to add a touch of personal style to any room, like @chloejg did here. Look for colors, patterns and textures that align with your favorite aesthetic.

Throw Blankets

A big part of Hygge is effortlessness. Toss your favorite throw blankets on the bed, couch, or even your home office chair to add a layer of comfort to your space. The best part? You'll be ready to take snuggle breaks at a moment's notice.

Lush Rugs

POV: You're stepping out of your shoes and onto a soft rug at the end of a long day. Now *that's* Hygge. Adding warmth to bare floors is key during the colder months. Decorative rugs are an easy way to keep chills at bay while creating a stylish roomscape.

Mood Lighting

Whether you favor the modern campfire vibes of a personal fireplace or the earthy glow of a marble lampshade, mood lighting can create a sanctuary-like space to relax in. Switch off harsh lights and unwind with vibey lighting fixtures.
