Create a Hygge Home

By Morgan Saylor

What is this hygge thing about?

Well, resist the urge to pronounce it the way it’s spelled – the Danish word pronounced ‘hoo-gha’ has no English equivalent, and is currently trending.

What does it mean? It’s that warm, cozy feeling – defined by khachilife as the art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive; 2. to create well-being, connection and warmth; 3. a feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other; 4. celebrating the everyday.

Cozy vibes aren’t had accidentally, however. The Culture Trip has a Hygge Checklist for ways to up the Hygge factor of your home.
