Hygge (hoo-gah) = Creating a feeling of being comfortable + empowered by your surroundings

 

 

How’s it going out there? A lot of our IG posts feature hygge-inspired homes that are meant to soothe and inspire your inner designer, so we thought it would be cool to give you some ideas on how to “hygge” your home in any season. A little change can be good! And we’ve simplified it for you in just 3 steps. Good luck + don’t forget to tag us @thegrowingcandle with your favorite Hyggelight Growing Candle in its new space! "On your mark... get set... Hygge!"

Step 1: Bring in the outdoors

 

Part of Hyggelight’s mission is to get the outdoors into your home space. The plants and candle scents of each Growing Candle are designed to evoke a sense of calm and contentment like the feeling you get after a refreshing hike, or relaxing walk through a garden. The more you can incorporate the smells, tones, and spacious feel into the places you are, the more hygge you will bring into your world. Our living room feels like the breeze; our kitchen, the sunlight and so on. Let the natural elements around you inspire your design! We promise you'll end up with some cozy spaces that are both refreshing and empowering! Go you!

 Step 2: Make it your happy place

You may have noticed unique keepsakes, framed photos and special decor in the design photographs we love. We make it a point to frame family photos, have pieces new and old, and mostly to place things where we can see them and talk about them! Part of creating hygge in your home is to live the authentic you. Make the rooms you have reflect your hopes and dreams and “Cele-brate good times.. Come on!” We hope you sang that part. And if you didn't... why not now?

Here's a free Hygge Hint: Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Heart! However these work into your design is up to you! Just remember, keep it cozy, keep it happy and if you're truly at a loss (or never watched "Captain Planet" ) remember "The power is yours!"

Earth: the dirt you put in your pots before growing your Growing Candle

Fire: your favorite growing candle fragrance lit!

Wind: an open window to get some fresh air in the space

Water: think spa.. Even the sounds of a waterfall or rainstorm create a little more hygge

Heart: See the memories tip above, collect things that make you happy and #livethelittlethings. 

 

In conclusion: Creativity is just a matter of finding what lights you up and bringing more of that into your immediate surroundings. It’s also how you create an atmosphere of coziness and contentment while celebrating the unique you. And so, fellow Hyggelights, design with intention, follow these 3 Simple Steps, and take a bow.
