Winter is fast approaching. The nights are drawing in and we are starting to feel the chill. So what can we do to embrace rather than dread those cold and dark months ahead?
You may have heard of the Danish concept of Hygge (pronounced Hoo-Gah) Hygge is a way of living which helps Danes to enjoy those dark cold days. Think open log fires, candles, lamps dotted around, cosy throws and cushions, bowls of home made soups and mugs of hot chocolate… It can be summed up simply as enjoying the moment – creating intimacy.
I think we can all see the appeal of this concept because it involves simple pleasures which can help calm life’s frantic pace.
So what can we do to bring a little Hygge into our lives? At Ashby Interiors we specialise in lighting. Subtle mood lighting is an important factor in Hygge.
