Hygge gift guide: Merry and bright

Welcome to my final hygge gift guide for this festive season! This time we’re focusing on the fun side of hygge – not just languishing in front of a log fire, but the laughter and merriment that is so integral to Christmas. If the idea of parlour games or the endless game of Monopoly which…

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….

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…

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…

Garden hygge

People are often surprised to find out how much I, at the grand old age of 25, love garden centres. For as long as I can remember, visiting a garden centre has been one of my favourite weekend activities – I love picking out a firepit and garden furniture for my dream future home, and…

Decluttering the Danish way

I’m not very good at New Year’s resolutions. When I was younger, we had to come up with a New Year’s resolution at school, and I’d just never stick to it (mine was ‘stop biting my nails’ for about four years running). There are lots of things I could improve in 2017 – rejoin the…

Hygge Christmas: Home gift guide

How on earth could I write a series of Christmas gift guides without doing one about the home?! With less than two weeks to go, but a whole lot of winter left, I’m going to introduce you to a few gift ideas to help you keep your friends and family cosy this winter. While you…

How to hygge this autumn

I’m in an autumnal frenzy. The first question I ask anyone at the moment is ‘Have you seen any conkers and if so where can I get them?’. Conkers are my autumnal drug. I crave that gorgeous rich brown. I feel the same way about blackberries too. I spotted some on a Sunday walk on…

Come inside with [hoo-gah] and win a Scandi throw

I’m calling it: summer’s over. The Olympics are over (see you in four years, diving) and all my summer dresses are being banished to the back of my wardrobe. Hello drizzle, hello wool and hello pumpkins. I’m super excited to bring to you some hygge homeware inspiration from Jack Watson, the owner of new Scandi…

Getting autumnal with the Yankee Candle Harvest Time collection

Autumn is obviously the best season, and I’m MASSIVELY in love with all the smells associated with it. Hot cider, ripe berries, wet grass, bonfires, crisp apples… mmm, I can’t wait. And we all know that candles are an integral part of the hygge experience, which is why I’m so excited to share with you…

Creating a hygge home for summer

I don’t know how this has happened, but apparently it’s the middle of July. The older I get, the faster the years go – I’m sure of it. A lot of people ask me if it’s possible to experience hygge in the summer. The answer is YES! It may seem counter-intuitive, trying to get cosy…

Time for Hygge Tea

Spring is great. It’s often overlooked as a transition from sparkly, merry winter to hot summers on the beach, but I love it. Bursts of pink and white blossom and lilac skies and April showers and brightening evenings and all other sorts of colourful gorgeousness ensue. But another reason I love spring is that it’s…

How to create a hyggeligt home for winter

I don’t know about you, but where I am today it’s pretty bleak. It’s grey and drizzly and sort of ‘stickily chilly’, where it’s too cold to not wear a coat but not cold enough for it to be entirely comfortable. I’m spending my day sheltering from the gloom outsideĀ on the sofa, in a woolly…

Skandinavisk: Danish DNA

It’s not long now until the clocks go back, and I for one can’t wait. I love the dark evenings, and having an excuse to stay indoors and watch Netflix and drink Winter Pimm’s (not that I need one). And of course, as with many delightfully hyggeligt evenings, the ideal way to set it off…

Starting small with hygge

In case it had escaped your attention, it’s pretty coldĀ outside right now in the UK. We had a little smattering of snow today, and there are no signs of shaking off the winter chill anytime soon. These long dark winter nights make me want to hibernate in a cosy little nest, and it reminded me…
