Hygge Lifestyle

WHAT ON EARTH ISHYGGE!?

Pronounced “Hoogah” hygge is the Danish concept ofcomfort and a comfortable lifestyle. 

After having to endure a long and miserable winter’s daycommute, coming home to a hot shower, a warm blanket, a cozy cup of cocoa, and asoothing fire with soft lights is hygge. 

Canadians can certainly appreciate the idea of hygge, living hygge and living a hygge lifestyle.

Hygge is enjoying beautiful moments of coziness andcompanionship, alone, with family, good friends or anyone we’re most relaxedwith. 

Pets bring a nice sense of companionship to a hygge home life.

HYGGE AT HOME

Always have something to look forward to …

Bring nature and natural elements into your home.  Pine boughs * cut logs * fresh flowers

Cook and bake with fresh ingredient.  Make homemade soup or stew. 

Collect and display all of your favourite luxury bath thingsfor everyday use.  Make special aneveryday thing.

Keep your bedroom a sacred quiet place for meditation, sleepand maybe reading.

Your reading space is your sanctuary. Make sure it’s plush,warm and comfortable. 

LOVE YOUR CREATIVE SPACE.”
