Making the most of the Scandinavian lifestyle that's finding its place in the UK Pronounced most commonly as "hoo-gah" - hygge is a trend sweeping the globe. Used to describe 'a feeling of cosiness', the word that originated in Norway has become commonplace in the UK. One of the principles of the trend is removing the use of technology and embracing more simple and traditional pleasures like candles, flowers, log fires, board games and walking. Ultimately, it is about elegant minimalism in the home and taking advantage of what nature has to offer.

Hygge is particularly easy to introduce when the nights draw in. Soft lighting and candles add wonderful, relaxing ambience to a home.
