How To Make Your Home Cozy For Fall: Practicing Hygge

Hygge. This term has become increasingly popular in recent years. But what is it exactly? Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish term, describing the art of creating intimacy with yourself, your friends and your home. Through cozy textures, warm tones, sweet smells, and soft lighting, you can create your own hygge home.

Cozy textures. What is better than cozying up in a chunky knit throw blanked on a chilly autumn evening? Bring textures into your home with soft faux fur throw pillows, some chunky blankets, and textured upholstery. Roll out a rug you can really sink your feet into.

Warm tones. Nothing is cozier than a warm-toned room. Pull in warm tones with gold and copper accessories, dark, warm wood tones and orange, mustard, blush or red accent colors.

Sweet smells. Brew some fresh coffee, bake some cinnamon rolls, light your favorite scented candle. These scents will comfort and calm you, and make you really work up an appetite! Indulge, you deserve it.

Soft lighting. Soft lighting is extremely calming and cozy. Light candles, string up some fairy lights, turn on a few table lamps. Keep it dim and warm, but make sure you have enough light to curl up with your favorite book!

Make this fall cozy. Try hygge!
