Imagine living in a country where the temperature in the winter can reach minus zero degree and the sunlight lasts less than four hours a day? Just having a very warm and cozy house, is not it? And it was precisely from this extreme condition that the Hygge style was born, straight from Denmark to the world.
Hygge - read "hu-ga" - does not have a literal translation into Portuguese, but the closest meaning we can find for that word would be something like "cozy".
More than a way to decorate the home, hygge is a way of life. This concept employed by the Danes was even awarded the title of "happiest people in the world" in 2016 according to the World Happiness report published by the United Nations.
This is because the inhabitants of this country needed to find ways to feel welcomed and comfortable in the house, since that is where they spend most of their time.
That is, a house decorated in the hygge style needs to be above all comfortable and cozy. And this has nothing to do with the type of furniture you use or the size of your sofa. Hygge is much more related to what you create in the environment than with what you buy.
Hygge is having a cup of tea reading a book, chatting with friends sitting on the floor while the rain falls outside or watching a movie sipping hot chocolate. All these things go through decoration, but they are not themselves, do you understand the difference?
Especially because comfort and well-being is an idea that varies greatly from person to person. With this, the decor hygge does not follow specific rules and standards, but it ends up having characteristics that makes it recognizable in the environment. And be careful: do not confuse hygge with the Scandinavian. Although they are two similar decoration trends originating in the same region, they are not the same thing.
