Hygge, pronounced “hoo-guh,” is a Danish word that can’t be defined or translated into one single English word. In short, it is the feeling of complete comfort, contentment, and peace. Hygge is now a style phenomenon that inspires people to transform their homes into the ultimate place of comfort. As ambassadors of cozy, we’ve fallen in love with everything hygge. Our newest Hygge Collection is designed to help you find the perfect soft pieces to give you a peaceful, cozy feeling. Besides our cozy blankets, throws, and pillows, here are four ways you can add hygge style to your home.
Scented or not, candles add warmth and mood to your space. There’s something so satisfying and relaxing about watching the flame of a candle wiggle back and forth like trees in the wind. Neatly arrange candles on your dresser, shelf, or nightstand, and you will immediately begin to understand what hygge is all about.
There's a reason why they say the outdoors is the best medicine! Plants and natural greenery are known for boosting mood, productivity, and creativity. House plants rid the air of toxins and odors, produce oxygen, and help increase humidity. Some of the best air-purifying plants are Snake Plants, Pothos, and Philodendrons – all low maintenance and easy-to-care-for plants. House plants also offer an element of natural texture that you can't get from any other type of decor.
3. A Cozy, Comfy Wardrobe
Think oversized and ultra-soft. While you're relaxing at home, throw on a pair of soft, loose sweatpants and an oversized sweater. Take advantage of soft fabrics like fleece, merino wool, and knit cotton blends. Berkshire has a large selection of cozy robes and wraps to help you relax at home.
4. Make Your Own Hygge
Hygge is about enjoying things and feeling relaxed and joyful. It can mean many things to different people – baking cupcakes, taking a bath, going for a walk in the woods, or binging a Netflix show. Hygge is about making time for the simple pleasures in life that we often don't make time for. So take that bath, read that book, and enjoy the moment.
Our Hygge Collection is full of our softest and coziest fabrics – sherpa, VelvetLoft, fleece, and more. Explore our collection to find your perfect Hygge blanket or throw.
