Your 3-Step Guide to a Hygge Home with Berry Homeware

The people of Denmark have this word for taking time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life to enjoy calmness and comfort with those you love, or even by yourself. “Hygge” (pronounced ‘hoo-guh’) is described as the enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures, devoid of frustration or anything overwhelming. This is the melding of good food, drinks, warm blankets, candlelight and company. In English we would best describe this as feelings of “cosiness”. Berry Homeware is embracing hygge this winter and here are three things you can do to add some hygge to your life and home this winter:


Throw on some comfort.

The beginning of June has ushered in a sweep of cold weather and with it some much needed snuggles. What better way to snuggle that to wrap yourself in an ultra-soft and luxurious throw blanket. The neutral tones of Berry’s Lulani and Milani throws are quintessentially hygge. The perfect addition to those cosy nights and indoor picnic dates to make the core memories we want to last.

Add a little warm light.

Hygge living encourages incorporating soft and warm pockets of light throughout your space. Few things add an atmosphere to a cold day better than a scented candle. In the Berry collection, there is something for everyone. You can fill the house with the sweet smells of a lemon cake or the strong and aromatic fragrance of a morning brew or even one that fills your space with calming scents of lavender and rose.

Finally, bring the outdoors in.

Introducing nature inspired elements into your home has the power to create an inviting atmosphere. Low maintenance plants as well as nature inspired materials like oak can add warmth and life to any space. If you’re looking for a seamless and quick way to bring the outdoors in : The Sicily oak coasters will be the perfect accessory when you’re snuggled up on the couch with your favourite warm drink.

Embrace hygge and have a happy winter. And if you won’t take it from us, take it from Denmark, they are the world’s happiest country after all.
