Hygge for the Holidays

hygge

a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being

Finally, 2020 has given us something to feel good about - the holidays! As a company specializing in curating collections from home good brands, we've always got hygge on our minds. We've put together a quick guide to show you how to add hygge to your home and create an even cozier atmosphere for you and your loved ones this festive season.

Don't Settle for Your Setting

Want to cuddle up while weathering a snowstorm? Do you wish you had a fireplace in your apartment or piano music playing in another room of your house? It might sound silly, but while we aren't able to travel as much this season, we've found Youtube to be a great mood booster. We've been setting a comfy tone with a few favorites on our TVs: Fireplace, Christmas Music from Another Room, Cozy Christmas Coffee Shop, Cozy Winter Hut and for the real nerds, Hogsmeade Ambiance (because who didn't wish they could visit Hogsmeade during the holidays).

Smells Like Holiday Spirit

One of the quickest ways to set a cozy mood is through home fragrance.  Luin Living natural soy wax candles and reed diffusers are available in a range of calming scents. One of our most well-loved is the perfectly named "Happy" scent. Available in a candle and a hand-poured reed diffuser, "Happy" warms up a room with cheerful holiday aromas of red berries and pine.

Pile It On

We're talking about blankets and rugs, not Great Aunt Judy's endless critique of your love life. Layering textiles is a quick way to make any room much cozier. Take all the blankets out of your storage baskets and throw them over the back and sides of the couch to make it more plush. Layer two different textured rugs.

The Luin Living Oasis rugs are great draped over the back of a chair and the pillow covers immediately make a chair, bed or couch more inviting.

 

Catch Feelings

Hygge is as much about how things look as it is how they feel. Focus on post-shower feelings of bliss by stepping onto a fluffy bath mat, and wrapping yourself in a luxuriously soft towel
