Here’s our tips on planning a home renovation project.
When looking at redecorating your home it’s difficult to know where to start. You often start with the room you spend the most time in or the one that needs the most ‘TLC’ but without really considering how it will fit into the decor of the rest of the home. It’s important to try and plan how the rest of your home will look, so here are a few tips on how to create flow in your home.
Hygge (pronounced ‘Hue-gah’) is a Norwegian word with no direct English translation. Pop it into Google Translate and it comes out as ‘fun’. Ask around and most people will associate it with cosiness, but it’s more than just a cosy feeling.
Hygge is not something you can buy. It’s a feeling. It’s a way of life. An appreciation of life’s simplest pleasures. The best description we have read about Hygge is as follows:
Hygge is all about using the 5 senses to absorb the joy of even the simplest things; the smell of apple and cinnamon cake; the words of a lovely poem; the feeling of lying in your bed in freshly ironed linen; or just looking out at the autumn colours in the garden. Hygge is everywhere; you just need to discover it.
So, how can we bring that into our lives through our home?
