Cozy up to hygge, The most important thing to realize about hygge (Commonly pronounced: Hoo-gah) is that it’s more than one of 2017’s style trends, it’s a lifestyle. An article in TIME explains the Danish concept as “an approach to living that embraces positivity and enjoyment of everyday experiences.” TIME also says this school of thought is one of the core attitudes to life in the Nordic region.
Applying hygge to your interiors is fairly simple. Since the word means comfort, that should be your primary focus. Be sure to incorporate plush furniture, plenty of pillows and soft blankets. Use soothing colors throughout and finish your design with a few, well-made accessories.
Pulling off this trend is all about creating contrast. As you can see in the picture above, the lower cabinets are used as an accent against plenty of stark white. Again, this is a situation where connotations come into play. A navy-blue-and-white combo brings to mind images of a clean and crisp naval uniform, which are undoubtedly positive attributes to describe any cooking space.
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
