Home is where the hygge is
PHM loves keeping up to date with all the latest interior design trends and this winter it’s all about hygge!
The Danish term, pronounced ‘hoo-ga’, was originally a Norwegian term for wellbeing. In the interiors world, hygge is becoming increasingly popular and is all about creating a warm, cosy feeling in the home. It’s candlelight and crackling open fires. It’s snuggling up on the sofa with a warm blanket and a cup of tea. Ultimately, hygge is an experience as much as it is a design trend.
With an average of just four hours’ sunlight a day and freezing temperatures in the winter months, it is no surprise that creating cosy and inviting interiors is top on the Danish to-do list! Here are some recently launched show homes that have embraced this trend.
Light greys, dusty pinks and cool shades of blue create a calming and relaxed colour-scape, while framed artwork injects personality in to the room. The low hanging golden globe light fitting creates the sense of a more intimate and cosy space, and the splash of gold adds a touch of warmth and luxury.
At Catherine’s Walk in Guildford, Metis Homes have also embraced this Nordic trend. The stunning interior of the showhome features minimalist furniture and clean lines, while copper tones create a warming atmosphere.
The apartments at Prime Place Sevenoaks also hint at hygge, featuring geometric shapes and pops of bright blue and orange furnishings which complement the woody toned scandi-style furniture.
