Cultivated from organic elements and natural fibers, the look is clean and light. Wood is utilized to accent its rings and texture, while elements of marble, stone and concrete accent home furnishings. Macramé sees a resurgence in wall décor and lighting, and textiles take on a handmade, earthen look in nubby cotton and over-tufted kilim rugs. When looking to this trend, think sunlit living room in white-washed detail.
Hygge (pronounced “Hoo-Ga”) is the Danish art of happy living. It embodies all of those things that a make a home warm, cozy and inviting to friends and family. Chunky knits, plush rugs and whimsical throw pillows, in a soft color palette of taupe, ivory, cornflower blue and petal pink, work well with the copper or rug accents and bleached wood that highlight the simplicity of this lifestyle. Associated with relaxation and indulgence, Hygge is about a life well lived, enjoying the treasures you have collected along the way with family and friends. This intimate trend is about choosing joy over everything else.
