Hygee, a Danish term, roughly translates to a feeling of coziness. It's also a concept that is taking the world by storm this winter. Creating an atmosphere of coziness in which to enjoy everyday life....that sounds like the perfect inspiration for our bonus room.
In my mind, this is how our bonus room looks...layers of cozy textures, the whole family together enjoying the space, just messy enough (but of course, not too messy!), magical. You know, very real life. ha.
In reality, I know our space won't look like this but there are things from each of these images that are inspiring me to create our family's perfect space...
Like all the different textural pillows and beanbags. Faux fur and chunky knits coming my way.
Lots of seating and a big table.
Ummm, chaises - there's not much I enjoy more than spreading out, feet up while enjoying a movie with a big bowl of popcorn.
Again, in my mind, these amazing chaises would play a big role in our design plan, but in reality this is far too dramatic for our family-friendly space.
But, we could probably pull off something like this...a couple side by side chaises. Me likely.
Again, with the furry bean bags. I know, I know - has to happen.
The perfect sum it up image...my ideal hygee happiness nook. Who cares that it's warm here 8 out of 12 months a year. That's what AC is for, am I right?
Yes, yes I'm starting to get a real sense of how I'd like this space to come together. First step is to add lots of seating and second step is to cozy it all up. Sounds easy enough to me!
More to come...
