How To Hygge Minimal Interiors

Easy ways to make your minimal interior super cosy


  1. The minimal and pure style of Scandinavian interiors is extremely appealing. It creates a fresh and peaceful environment to live in, free of clutter and mess.
  2. However, in winter months you may want something a little more cosy, which is why I love the recent craze for the Danish concept 'hygge'. Pronounced 'hue-gah', it translates approximately as a 'feeling of cosiness’.
  3. If you do it right, creating a feeling of 'hygge' in your home injects warmth and texture without taking away from the overall classiness of the minimal interior design.
  4. There are are a few things you can do to make your home more 'hygge'. The first is adding cushions, throws and other tactile details. You can't go wrong with flokati rugs and sheepskins (lots of sheepskins).

  6. The second is soft light - bring it in wherever you can. Think candles in dining rooms and fairy lights in jars. Remember that 'hygge' is all about feeling cosy, so choose lights with warm tones, as opposed to cooler ones.
  7. It's not just created with soft furnishings and light though. It also encompasses the comfort that family and friendship bring. Creating beautiful celebrations of your relationships encourages a feeling of belonging. Belonging is very 'hygge'.
  8. Speaking of family, this idea isn't restricted to just adults. Kids can be 'hygge' too! You can make their rooms more snug by adding fairy lights to bunk beds for kids and family photos to the walls. If you have space, why not create a comfy reading area too?
