As the dark nights approach, add some warmth to your home with the help of Regent Shopping Centre.
Autumn is the perfect time to master the Danish art of ‘hygge’ (pronounced “hoo-gah”), which refers to a feeling of warmth, comfort and intimacy. Embrace the season with our home inspiration.
2. Invest in candles –The flickering lights are extremely inviting on cold evenings. Stock up on candles of all sizes at Clintons this autumn but avoid strong and distinctive scents, where possible.
3. Light up the room – A hygge home takes its lighting seriously. Draw in as much natural light as possible to start the day off well and create soothing pools of soft light at night with a selection of lamps.
4. Layer up – Hygge is all about being cosy. Take inspiration from the world of clothing and add textures and layers to your home with fluffy blankets, cosy cushions and thick pile rugs, creating numerous spots to relax in after a long day at work. Visit Marks and Spencer for some layering inspiration.
5. Add natural materials – Bring a minimalist design to life with warm, natural materials, such as wood and a variety of flowers. Be careful not to include bright colours and designs, as these can disrupt the overall theme.
