The first time I heard the word “Hygge” it immediately triggered my interest. I felt like I had found the word, for the concept I had been trying to explain for years. I felt like I found the word to label  the kind of life I love so much, the habits, the lifestyle that in my opinion, make living absolutely delicious.

What does “Hygge” actually mean? Browsing online, I found a definition according to which, Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.

Hygge is not something to HAVE, but rather something to BE, hygge only requires consciousness, slowness, and not just the ability to be present – but enjoy and recognize the present moment. Hygge has been called everything, from “the art of creating intimacy”, “consciousness of the soul” and “the absence of annoyance” to “taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things”, “cozy togetherness”, and even “Cocoa by candlelight”.

Hygge is about an atmosphere, it is a feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world outside and allow ourselves to let our guard down. The way we feel in our home is essential in the process of building a serene and balanced life. The atmosphere you breathe in your house is very important. When your home becomes your sanctuary, where you  truly feel at ease, surrounded by the loving energy of your things. Beautiful objects collected during your life to evoke sweet memories. This feeling of coziness is hygge.

Hygge is a lifestyle and I never miss a chance to improve my surroundings. Browsing online I found a really adorable brand of objects to make my home lovely, the website is www.lime-italy.com. Check it out if you wish, and see the selection of all the super cute items. When I landed on this site I so fell in love with the style that I could not refrain myself from ordering quite a few things.

 

 

 

Just look at how adorable these colorful pillows are, they light up the whole room! The great thing is that they not only look great but the quality is also outstanding. This items are all hand-made in Italy with the finest fabrics.

Hygge is a concept that promotes “togetherness”, and where can we celebrate it better than around a table set with love and care? Eating together with the people we cherish feels to me like a hug without touching, it is one of the best moments of the day. I choose to dedicate special attention to this time and on the Lime-Italy website I found some great things. The taste and the colors of these items are so delicious looking, I would like to fill up my home with al these objects and colors. Check it out for yourself! www.lime-italy.com

 

 

It is so important to feel at home in your house, the feng-sui  is absolutely necessary, since it conditions your mood and energy. Your home should be your sanctuary, the place you want to be  to recharge your batteries, relax, rest, and get inspired. That’s why, a cozy home or a hygge home is something that is hard to explain in words, because it is not something to be explained, instead it is something to be felt.
