Hygge – the reason Danish people are so happy in their homes

Covet the look? Here's how to get it

Hygge (pronounced ‘hue-gah’) is a Danish term that simply means cosiness. It’s the recognition and treasuring of the simple moments in life, enjoying togetherness with the people who matter.

Interestingly, Hygge isn’t categorised by a traditional ‘look’ or a ‘colour scheme’, it’s a conscious decision to keep comfortable and to surround yourself with what matters to you.

Using its latest range of furniture, bedding and homewares Domayne with Home Beautiful created these beautiful Hygge looks for Domayne’s recent publication ‘Home Chic’.
