A chunky knit is the epitome of hygge vibes.

Floor pillows or faux throws can also be used to create a serene space.

Add a comfortable chair or two to hang out for a movie night or curl up with a good book.

Keep the color scheme of these soft blankets and pieces to a neutral palette to up the cozy feel even more.

Natural materials used in your fireplace design
Soft and warm bulbs

This area could be dedicated to tea, coffee, or hot chocolate.

A small little space or cozy corner perfect for indulging in comfort food and embracing hot drinks.

Life’s simple pleasures especially in the dark short days of winter.

A hygge space like this also makes it easy to entertain and share with others.

Include everything you need to serve as well, cups and spoons, sugar, syrups, marshmallows, etc.

A staple of the hygge lifestyle is the art of bringing nature indoors.
