By Francoisetmoi

Easy and tangible ways to hygge your home for the Holidays. Tap into the ideas I use in my own Christmas and Winter home décor.

Hygge Your Home for the Holidays
Last month, I shared some festively Nordic ways to decorate for the holidays at Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine's Holi-Go-Fabulous Event, withKelly Kegans of MSPmag Home & Design and Lea Johnson of Creekwood Hill. A big part of Nordic decor is incorporating the Danish philosophy of Hygge, pronounced Hue-guh which is all about feathering your home with simple pleasures. Here are my favorite ways to bring the magic of Hygge into your home this holiday, winter, and beyond.Hygge Your Home for the HolidaysHygge Your Home for the Holidays Incorporate natural elements - Bring the Outdoors In

  • Berry or evergreen branches in a vase.
  • Potted bulbs - Amaryllis and paper whites
  • Dried orange garland - string at windows or use as ornaments or gift toppers

Hygge Your Home for the Holidays Create a cozy environment - With the days getting shorter and shorter, candles are a wonderful way to create ambiance and celebrate light during the darkest time of year.

  • Tray of candles on coffee table
  • Evergreen table wreath
  • Textiles- Think faux fur and chunky knit pillows and throws

Hygge Your Home for the Holidays Simplify décor

  • Other than candles, which I sprinkle around like pixie dust, edit decor. Less is more when it comes to Scandinavian decor.
  • Another great way to visually simplify is to stick to a limited color palette. Completely neutral, or neutral with an emerald, red or Chestnut color accent.
