3 ways to bring nature into your home for autumn

Could it BE any more grey?! As I write from inside my blanket burrito, I’m looking around me and seeing a lot of fabric. Wool, cotton, velvet, fleece, pretty much everything. For those of us who just can’t get enough of the hygge way of life, I imagine your home looks pretty similar right now….

7 ideas to get more sunshine in autumn

At this time of year, it’s easy to cancel all your plans and stay wrapped up inside. I know I’m guilty of doing it – when the wind is whistling and your skin is turning an alarming shade of grey in the chilly climes, the temptation to draw the curtains and huddle under a blanket…

Hygge places: Bled, Slovenia

I recently took a little trip to Bled (and the surrounding area) in Slovenia. My friend and I considered several places for this trip – Cannes, Sorrento, Krakow… but my friend had taken a day trip to Bled once before, and I’d heard good things, so we went for it. Guys, if you love autumn…

31 ideas for October hygge

Guys, I couldn’t be happier that October is finally here. It’s my favourite month – I love the unpredictable weather, I love the darker evenings, I love the bright crisp mornings. I’m not big on my own birthday (though I love other people’s!), but my birthday is 31st October – finding out I’m a spooky…

Hygge places: Brighton

How have I never written a post about the most hyggeligt places in my hometown? I wrote a while ago about my old favourite pub in Brighton, Northern Lights, which has unfortunately since closed down. I’m still gutted – there’s another bar in its place, but the magic has gone. Just goes to show that hygge…

Bright, golden September

Now we’re sidling our way through September, I’m doing silly things like getting up at 7.15am on a Saturday just so I can experience as much of autumn as possible. ‘Experiencing autumn’ at that time of day generally just means relocating from my bed to the sofa to grin gormlessly out of the window as…

5 tips for autumnal home decoration

This year we’ve seen some amazing interiors trends, from my absolute favourite colour, blush pink (I promise I liked it before it became known as ‘millennial pink’!) to copper, and tropical prints for days (I’m looking at you, pineapples, palm leaves and flamingos!). But now we’re sneaking into autumn, the trends are changing, and I…

Creating a Pinterest-worthy hygge home

Confession time: I LOVE PINTEREST. I can easily waste hours on a Sunday evening scrolling through recipes, inspiring my home decor and fuelling my wanderlust, and there’s something so satisfying about adding to my boards (shameless plug: if you enjoy this blog, you might also like my Hello Hygge board). One of the questions I’m…

The hygge of making

I don’t ‘make’ anywhere near as much as I should these days. When I was at school, I was in art club, and I remember loving every single second of those Wednesdays after school making stained ‘glass’ windows out of sweet wrappers, batik paintings, mosaics and clay animals. I was also in magazine club, where…

English summer rain

Always stays the same, nothing ever changes English summer rain seems to last for ages So in the UK, we’ve gone from horrendously oppressive, sticky weather to thunderstorms and driving rain in the space of a week. I am totally cool with this (and totally cool – any temperature above around 10 degrees is too…

Why you can’t force hygge

On Tuesday night, it was raining hard, I’d had a couple of glasses of wine and I was reading in bed under my fairy lights. I was fresh out of a ridiculously elaborate bubble bath, and I was so cosy and warm under the covers under the twinkly lights with the wind whistling past my…
