As the rain fell this morning, I was savoring a cup of coffee and the latest issue of Bella Grace magazine when I came across the word “hygge” (pronounced hue-guh). Reading through the articles, I got the impression that this term describes what I’m attracted to and what I aspire to in my daily life- coziness, comfort, intimacy, simplicity, joy, and presence.
I googled the term and found that it is a Danish word meaning “the art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel openhearted and alive; a coziness of the soul.” (LaWhimsy-WordNerd)
“A Coziness of the Soul”
Without knowing the word or its origin, I have embraced the feeling of hygge for years- in my home and garden, in my personal sense of style, and in how I try to relate to those I hold dear (all admitted works in progress).
Hygge At Home
a hammock for two
a garden designed as a sanctuary- full of herbs, berries, flowers, birdhouses, and whimsical lawn art
lawn furniture on the deck for enjoying the sunset or watching fireflies sparkle in the nearby field
soft throw blankets
soup in sturdy handcrafted mugs
zinnias- the more, the better!
inviting bed linens that make it hard to get up in the morning
open windows that let in the breeze or the sound of heavy rain
meditation area in a spare bedroom
my art studio… the ultimate sanctuary
lots of books in practically every room
Hygge In My Personal Style
Sensual fabrics that envelop me
Bath salts, essential oils, and scented lotions for a bit of pampering
A great selection of music for every occasion and mood
Yes, silly socks!
Hygge With Those I Love
Walks in nature
Free summertime concerts in the park
Casual cookouts or potlucks so no one is stuck in the kitchen
Relaxing time in a coffee shop or diner
Browsing leisurely through a bookstore
Laughter… lots of it!
Just being together- comfortable in the silence
Alex Beauchamp wrote on her website, Hygge House, that “Hygge literally only requires a conscious appreciation, a certain slowness, and the ability to not just be present- but to recognize and enjoy the present.” She goes on to say, “Some also refer to hygge as an ‘art of creating intimacy‘.”
May 2018 bring you all the coziness, intimacy, joy, laughter, and comfort that you desire. Happy New Year!!
