When it comes to interior design, joy and coziness are concepts that many people want to incorporate into their spaces. One of the best decor concepts is hygge, a Danish concept. This is a state of mind of being present in your environment and having a space that you love. Many Danish people describe this home design concept as being peaceful, friendly, and stress-relieving.

Creating a hygge home design may be challenging for those unfamiliar with the concept. If you’d like to update your space to incorporate this style, use these ideas to get started.

Embrace a Less is More Concept

When it comes to home hygge decor, less is more. Select the favorite pieces in each room that have both function and style. Neutral and white colors work well for wall colors as they will create a space that’s bright while also calming. Design elements such as vases and artwork should be minimal and only the pieces that spark joy. Having an uncluttered space can be challenging for some. However, try to go through the house and weed out the pieces that you don’t want to end up with a cleaner overall space.

Embrace Warm Lighting

Lighting that’s too harsh or bright can have a negative effect so take the time to evaluate the lighting in each room. Candles, lamps, and fireplaces are the most common uses of lighting that are found in a home full of hygge. Lighting can set the mood so choose elements that you love. It’s common to find candles throughout the rooms or fairly lights draped across mantles in Scandinavian decor. If concerned about the safety of candles, look for artificial candles or other warm lighting options such as lamps and wall sconces. Using small lights rather than one bright overhead option often works well, especially in a small space.

Introduce Textures Not Colors

In hygge decor, the colors tend to be fairly neutral. That doesn’t mean that their decor is boring though. The Danish people use a mixture of materials and patterns in order to add character and interest into what would otherwise be a minimalist scheme. They tend to use warm, natural materials such as leather, wood, and wool. The overall look should still stick with a tight color palette though so it won’t be clashing or distracting. For example, a white blanket can be a fascinating piece of decor if it has interesting knotting or another pattern incorporated into the design. Look for pieces that add this texture when shopping for new pieces.

Conclusion

Finally, remember that one of the main concepts of hygge is to not waste. Reuse and recycle objects when you can or upcycle antique pieces of furniture. Nothing has to be perfect. In fact, imperfection can be charming with this concept. Instead, focus on creating an environment of comfort and tranquility. It may take some time to master this style. However, once you have a few rooms with this design concept, you’ll find that it’s a great idea for any space.
