Summer hygge for the home with Hygge Rituals

Phwoarrrr… I don’t know about you guys, but in my neck of the woods, it has been SCORCHING HOT this week. I’m not very good in the heat, and all I’m capable of is sprawling out in front of the fan with an ice lolly or 15.

When many people think of hygge, they think of woolly socks, furry blankets, heavy curtains… ugh! I can’t even write about this without a wave of heat prickling across my entire body. But before you go jump in an icy shower, listen up – it’s totally possible to hygge in your home in the summer. If, like me, you’re a delicate flower and you just don’t want to risk the sunburn, there’s plenty you can do to make your home hygge-ready for while we’re riding out the heatwave.

I’ve just discovered US-based brandΒ Hygge Rituals, and I must say, I’m already in love. Everything you know about winter hygge can be cast aside, because their small but perfectly formed collection focuses on fresh prints, simple design and quality materials to keep your home feeling bright and cool. I’ve picked out some of my favourite pieces to inspire your summer decorating, and Hygge Rituals have very generously offered one lucky Hello Hygge reader the chance to win an item of their choice from the website! Read to the bottom of the post to find out how to enter…

Keep it cushioned


Palm prints and pineapples are EVERYWHERE this summer, and with good reason. I love the clean greens of this palm print cushion cover, and this gold pineapple print would go with pretty much any colour scheme. Just because it’s way too hot for your throws and fluffy blankets, that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your comfort, and these little babies from Hygge Rituals will keep you cool and comfy all summer.

Pretty up your plants


I love having plants in the house, and this glass and wood plant holder immediately caught my eye. I like that the crystal glass holder looks like it belongs in a science lab, and the wood gives it that effortlessly cool rustic Scandi vibe. Being able to see the roots of your plant is a brilliant bonus, and I could see myself wanting to check back every day to see what it looked like. Kids would love these – a little biology project for the summer holidays anyone?

Cool for the summer


Trying to sleep in this weather is UNBEARABLE isn’t it? I spritz my entire body with water (top tip: leave a plant spritzer filled with water in the fridge during the day for a refreshing nighttime ritual) before I even dare to lay on my bed… yet I’m someone who just can’t sleep unless I’m covered with SOMETHING. That’s why I have total heart eyes for this elegant fringed French linen throw. You can ditch the duvet and sleep under this lightweight layer to avoid the 3am sweats (I’m so glamorous aren’t I?), and the great news is that the more you wash this, the softer it will get, meaning you can freshen it up as often as you need while the nights are sweltering and sticky.

Pretty in pink


Pink is my favourite colour of all time, and flamingos are another mega trend for this summer. They’re on dresses, bags, in pools, in interior design, EVERYWHERE. I love these pretty clean flamingo prints, and I love the way they’re styled here in these crisp white frames. As much as I love neutral interiors, the Scandis aren’t ones for shying away from pops of colour, and this artwork strikes just the right balance between bright and fun and easy breezy. I’ll take one for every room please.

Feelin’ pot pot pot


Look at THESE little cuties! These little ceramic pots are incredibly versatile – Hygge Rituals suggests using them for planting your succulents, but I think they’d look just as great filled with little shells, pebbles or crystals. Ceramic is also fire resistant, making them adorable little votive holders for your favourite candles. If you’re struggling to keep bugs at bay, why not use citronella tealights? Insects don’t like the smell, so it might help you keep your little unwanted visitors away.
