Embrace the old…as new! Use vintage storage crates, old family china, and anything else that can be salvaged. Hygge is all about being sentimental, so those old family herilooms will have just the space on your mantlepiece.
Remember what I said about texture? It’s so important! Here, this home designer ties the “old” in with plenty of different textures. The brick wall is fantastic because it’s both “old” and textured! Psst..take a peek at what the flooring is like under the white and black rug.
Where you can, incorporate the natural elements of your landscape into your home. If you have a fireplace, use chopped logs as part of your home decor. They look beautiful, and they’re as functional as they are decorative! Scavenge for a bowl of pinecones too if you can get away with it!
Isn’t hygge all about relaxing? Make sure you dedicate a space somewhere in your home where you can just let lose, and simply relax! This could even be an example of bringing the outside in…depending on where you got your hammock from! Did you notice that the hammock base is really part of an old boat? Who would have thought!
