Ways to Add Hygge Style to Any Home

The past few years have brought an upsurge of interest around the Danish concept of "hygge," a word for which we have no straight translation in English.

The Danes spend about 180 days of each year in chilly, overcast, downright dark weather, and to combat the dreariness and isolation the colder months can bring, the Danes make their homes into environments where hygge abounds. While hygge can be experienced at any time of year, it is especially prevalent during the winter. So how can you bring a little hygge into your house? We have a few ideas.
