Creating Hygge Home: Turn Your Boring Room into A Danish Style

Do you have a room in your house that is decorated in such a way that when you walk in, you feel the stress simply falling from you? You relax your shoulders, sigh deeply, and enjoy the homey atmosphere. What if your whole house was like that one room? What if it was like every room in your home was somehow giving you a hug?
The Dutch have a word for that sensation. The Danish word “hygge,” pronounced hue-guh, roughly translates to the English word for “hug.” But instead of translating to the feeling of your 2-year-old’s arms wrapped around your legs or the gentle embrace of young lovers, it instead refers to the warmth and happiness of a perfectly decorated room and similar experiences in your life.
