The ‘Hygge’ way of life!

The ‘Hygge’ way of life!

November 8, 2016 0 By Nordic House

Now that the evenings are drawing in, the temperature has dropped and we move through November, I thought I’d show you some of the little things you can add to your décor to really channel that Hygge vibe!

In Scandinavia Hygge (pronounced Hoo-ga) is a way of life. Loosely translated into English it means ‘cosiness’ but it encompasses so much more! Hygge should be part of your life all year round but during the autumn and winter season, the focus shifts to make your home extra warm, welcoming and relaxing, especially in Scandinavia where the winters are long, cold and dark.

The best way to describe this Danish term is to think of oodles of candles, layers of textiles and textures, spending time with friends and family with good food and wine or even just time to yourself, snuggled up under a blanket, with a mug of coffee and a good book – sounds like heaven! Hygge is all about well-being and enjoying the little things in life and it is something we truly embrace here at Nordic House.

Candlelight is absolutely key. At this time of year, homes are filled with candles, they’re lit at all day long! Nothing is cosier and the warmth and ambience it creates, is just so good for the soul.

We have so many beautiful items in our collection that would add Hygge to your home however one of our favorites is our Cast Aluminium range. The sand-blasted texture gives it a timelessly aged feel and the sleek modern lines ensure that they’ll fit easily into any home. When lit, the candlelight bounces majestically off the surfaces, creating a gorgeously warm glow.


Why not add some ivy or pine cones to our Cast Aluminium Candle Holder Tray, like we have done here for a beautiful seasonal touch!

Our cute Cast Aluminium Candle Holders are reminiscent of times gone by. The subtle matte finish softy reflects the candlelight. They’re perfect for every room of the house.


This gorgeous Star Candle Dish will sit perfectly on any coffee or dining table. Fill with nuts, as we have done here, or even moss for an eye catching seasonal display.


The epitome of elegance, our Cast Aluminium Floor Candle Holders are gorgeously aged and beautifully sleek. Stunning when grouped together, they’ll add instant glamour to your décor.
