As November draws to a close, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. If you're preparing to deck the halls, check out our top tips for Christmas tree decorating, for a look that wows this festive season.

Location, location, location

First things first, location is key. Finding the perfect spot to showcase your tree is the first step in ensuring it looks its best. Find a location that's near a socket to avoid leads and wires cluttering your floor and rearrange furniture if necessary. If you've opted for a real tree, choose a cool corner, away from sources of heat to avoid it drying out.

Whether it's simply a fad, or here to stay, you can't argue that hygge isn't having a serious impact in the world of interior design . So what exactly is it and why is there such hype about it?

Well, the Danish word can't actually be translated into English as it's more of a feeling, rather than an object. Hygge - pronounced hue-gah - represents a culture of cosiness, happiness and wellbeing, which is widely credited as the reason why Denmark is regularly voted one of the happiest countries in the world!

Hygge means something different to everyone - whether it's cuddling up on the sofa with a good book, enjoying a bowl of your favourite warming comfort food, or filling your home with twinkling candles - it's really all about being mindful of the simple things in life that make you happy, and embracing them.
 

The interior design of your home can have a big impact on this so with this in mind, we've put together our 6 hygge tips to transform your home into a comfortable haven.

1. Stock up on candles

Believed to be the number one way to get the hygge look, we're not surprised! The first thing that comes to mind when creating a cosy setting is setting the perfect lighting and candles are the best way to achieve this. Whether scented or unscented, embrace the warming glow of candlelight throughout your home. And their use shouldn't be confined to solely nighttime either. Danes purchase more candles than anywhere else in Europe, with one third admitting they light candles all day.

2. Create texture

When you think about creating a cosy atmosphere, notions of soft textures which add dimension instantly spring to mind. If you want to hygge your home, stock up on chunky knit cushions, faux fur throws and fluffy rugs, guaranteed to add lashings of texture. For extra comfort, choose the softest of materials, such as merino wool and cashmere for a touch of luxe.

3. Don't go overboard

You don't have to completely redesign your entire home to create a hygge atmosphere. It might just be creating a little nook you can call your own, or adding more of what you love. Remember, hygge is a feeling, so it isn't just focused on physical items. It could be enjoying a cup of your favourite coffee, or enjoying a long, candlelit bath. It's all about taking time to enjoy more of the things that you love.

4. Bring the outdoors inside

The autumn and winter months are typically cold, so going outside may not be your idea of comfort, but that doesn't mean you can't welcome the great outdoors into your home. From wooden furniture and flooring, to exposed walls and brickwork and neatly packed piles of logs, waiting to be thrown on that roaring fire, it's easier than you might think. Plus, you can easily incorporate nature into your home, with the addition of house plants, which are the perfect finishing touch.

5. Keep it simple

Hygge is never about going overboard. Yes, its focus is on indulging, but not extravagance. Hygge is not about going OTT in a bid to impress guests, but instead creating an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable and at ease. Learn to embrace the imperfections and simplicity and you're halfway there.

6. Take up a hobby at home

You've spent time creating an atmosphere you love, so make some time to enjoy it! Whether it's taking up a new hobby, or picking up an old missed one, turn off technology, and enjoy a simpler way of life. From delving into a good book, to picking up a craft, these activities will help you switch off and relax the mind and body.
