On our sister lifestyle blog, Rock My Style we recently climbed aboard the hygge bandwagon. If you’re not familiar with the Danish term, it’s essentially creating cosy and conversational spaces to savour everyday moments and enjoy life with your nearest and dearest. Sounds like a flipping lovely idea to me.
I’m usually found over on Rock My Style blog chatting mostly about interiors and having a general natter with our readers, however I’m here today to share my winter edit from the gorgeous Wedding Shop collection; gifts you can request on your wedding list to embrace a bit of hygge while you enjoy your newly married life.
The Morning Routine
Hygge is about embracing the simple things in life. Savouring the first cup of coffee in the morning or taking time out to sink in to a bath full of bubbles at the end of the day. Drying with fluffy luxurious towels and sipping from a cute coffee cup are a great way to enjoy these everyday moments.
Velvet is having a renaissance in interiors as well as fashion. Textured fabrics are a great way to bring cosiness into your home and Susie’s Watson’s Midnight Blue cushion is a chic way to embrace the trend. If velvet isn’t your thing then the Mutts and Hound herringbone grey cushion for your pooch can bring another fabric in to your living room.
I think I have at least ten throws round at my house; they’re on sofas, beds and chairs because there’s nothing like snuggling up to a soft and luxurious blanket when it’s chilly outside. The beautiful Tweedmill throw in the softest grey is a neutral likely to compliment most colour schemes.
Candlelight is by far the easiest way to add atmosphere to your home. Who doesn’t want a flickering escape from an icy winter evening? I always think candles are a really good item to invest in as the packaging can live on as a tea-light holder, mini plant pot, or a place to stash your make-up brushes or stationery way after the wax has melted.
With notes of black pepper, cedar wood and patchouli Tom Dixon’s Scented Candle makes it to my wish list.
Starting off married life unwrapping a dinner service is hugely traditional and there’s a reason why it’s popularity remains. Enjoying time feasting with friends and family is central to the hygge concept so building your stash of dinner party plates and dishes will mean you can entertain to your hearts content. You’ll be making use of this for years to come so it’s a good plan to go for something neutral that you can add to over time – Le Creuset never go out of fashion.
Bear with me, I know it doesn’t sound particularly glam but have you considered adding a duvet to your wedding list? Creating a sanctuary to escape to with crisp, clean bedding and a warm duvet is the best way to enjoy the colder nights and you deserve a bit of luxury after all that wedding planning!
