As we’re leaving Summer behind, nature is slowly starting to transform and there’s a different energy in the air. Days are getting shorter and slightly colder as well.
Autumn is bringing back all the cosiness: fires lighting, hot chocolates, warm blankets, cozy clothes and candles lighting. Since the evenings are shorter we’re craving more time at home. The Danish have a term ‘Hygge’. It is used to describe cosiness, and has meanings such as; the art of creating intimacy, cosiness of the soul, taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. If you’re interested in learning more about 'Hygge', we suggest ‘The Little Book of Hygge’ by Mark Wiking.
What could be more 'hygge' than a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day with some candles lighting?
If you want to create a cosy atmosphere at home there are a few items that will help you create a ‘hygge’ space and experience.
As you probably already know, we love candles. Having candles lighting is one of the most effective ways to create a warm atmosphere at home. Have a browse through the candles selection on our website. If you missed our previous candles Blog post you can find it here.
Another key element for this Autumn and Winter are blankets and throws. There’s nothing quite like some cosy, snuggly blankets to keep us warm.
To stay extra cozy at home we have the most comfy slippers made with 100% merino wool. You’ll want to wear them all the time!
