A little Hygge goes a long way this season
Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga),is the Danish concept of making one’s space comfortable and cozy, But hygge is more than just a style—it’s a Scandanavian mindset favoring light, bright, minimal-but-highly-livable and joyful interiors.
The result? A space equally able to entertain friends for the holidays or provide some breathing room to curl up with a good book!

Home interiors experts at SINGULART have five tips to add a needed touch of comfort to your home.
1. Add plenty of textures
There are so many ways to add textures into your home, that can instantly make any room feel cozier. Think soft furnishings such as rugs, blankets, and pillows, and then different materials such as wooden tables, wicker baskets, and stone vases. You can even look to bring the outside in with some greenery and plants.
2. Warmer tones
Adding warmer color palettes is a sure way to make the room feel soft and cozy. You can do this by simply swapping your cushion covers for deeper colors, or giving your walls a fresh lick of paint.
3. Add pillows and blankets
Pillows and blankets create a space that is perfect for snuggling into on a quiet fall evening. Try draping blankets over chairs, filling a basket with blankets, and pilling a mixture of cushions high on your sofa.
4. Consider more soft lighting
With the evenings getting darker much earlier, having soft lighting around the house with warm-toned lights creates a cozy glow around your home that isn’t too harsh.
5. Set the mood around your home
Another great way to create a cozy environment is by simply setting the moody, yet warming feel of fall around your home. You can do this in a manor of ways, from adding warmer colored art works throughout the house to using Autumnal scents, to set that soft and cozy feeling for the Fall.
