1.    Cushions. Cushions. Cushions.

Nothing says cosy quite like an abundance of pillows do, so it’s time to go ham. Perhaps the sofa’s looking a little empty – why not a couple of graphic cushions just to mix things up while adding dimension to your interior. The right handpicked cushions can transform the mood of any room and are an easy, effortless and affordable way to keep up with the latest interior trends and ensuring a fashion update for your home.

2.  Lighting is KEY

Harsh lighting only kills the Hygge mood, so here’s a few words for you: Lose the overhead lighting. Scattering soft lighting throughout the room injects warmth into the room, much like candlelight does. Commune’s decorative steel floor lamp on wooden stands combines function with style, this spotlight by Commune serves several purposes, being not only attractive but also practical in adding low dimmed light.

3.  Instant Hygge

The pleasure of Hygge starts from the simplest things in life – that bagel you had in the morning that was still warm from the oven, or the soft illumination of candles you have burning at the corner of the room. Speaking of candles, which are also known as “Instant Hygge” as Meik Wiking says in The Little Book of Hygge, no nook is a Hyggeligt nook without candles – it’s even a great replacement for the harsh lighting Hygge lovers hate so much.
