With six new books out this winter covering the topic of ‘hygge‘, it’s no wonder everyone is talking about it. But do we really know what this Danish word means, and how do we do it? Here’s where we come in. We thought we’d give you a quick explanation of hygge, and some simple ideas for how to bring it into your home, whether you live in Scandinavia or Seattle.
The word ‘hygge’ doesn’t have a literal translation, which is why it has proven tricky to explain to non-Scandi folk. It’s best characterised by feelings and mood rather than a direct object: think coziness, warmth, contentment and you’ll be pretty close. Hygge is something that we can all attain, regardless of wealth or background. It embraces the simple, gentle things in life and encourages us to notice with full intent the things we are surrounded with. It is about finding pleasure in the presence of soothing things, about connection with others, belonging and ritual.
Christmas time is coming! Shops are getting ready for the season, putting on their best decorations and stacking goods in large amounts. Maybe not yet, but soon people will start looking for gifts and high streets and shopping malls will get crowded and tiresome. So why not get ahead by buying top quality gifts – linen towels, linen bedding including linen duvet covers – early from the comfort of your own home?
The gift of pure linen bathroom towels is something that will be cherished for a long time – every time the person uses their towels they are reminded of you and your kindness. Linen hand & guest towels will adorn a bathroom when guests are there and will speak of taste and preference for quality of the owner. For those who like preparing meals and who spend lots of time in kitchen, a set of stylish linen tea towels is also a good gift idea.
Duvet covers are a usual piece of bed linen mainly in Europe. In the United States comforters are used with flat sheets between one and the sleeper. But a custom of encasing a comforter with a cover is getting popular in USA too. To keep down comforters clean and hygienic one must put a cover or them. Avoiding flat sheets makes bed making quick and easy too!
As duvet cover is used directly next to skin, it is very important, what fabric it is made of. And because a duvet is a large piece of bedding that is clearly visible and noticeable, the design of your duvet cover plays major role when creating an atmosphere in the bedroom.
