According to Merriam-Webster, “hygge is is a quality of coziness that makes a person feel content and comfortable.” It’s often associated with the winter season but it can actually be practiced year round.

Get Rid of Clutter

Part of the hygge lifestyle includes simplicity and minimalism. Do a little spring cleaning or try the 30-Day Minimalism Game. Basically, only keep items in your home that bring you joy. By discarding the clutter in your home and life, you’ll be ready to start creating the sanctuary you deserve.


Surround Yourself With Nature

Houseplants are a perfect way to hygge your home because of the calming and natural beauty nature can bring to your home. Houseplants can help you create a cozy space at The Modern DC as well as improve your air quality. Not to mention, houseplants act as great home decor as well.


Create the Right Lighting

Hygge is about creating a warm and inviting space. The Modern DC’s large windows provide tons of natural lighting to make you feel relaxed. Natural light and low lighting both create cozy and comfortable spaces. So when you can, keep the fluorescent lights off and turn to natural light, lamps or candles.


Decorate With Intention

Let your home tell stories through your home decor. Maybe it’s photos of memorable times or souvenirs from various travels scattered around your home. When you feel connected to your space you’ll feel a greater sense of belonging.


Spend Time With Those You Love

The hygge philosophy believes spending time with friends and family is important. Sometimes our lives get so busy we forget to make time for those we love. Use your home as a way to stay connected by hosting small dinner parties or game nights. When you incorporate hygge at The Modern DC, your home will be cozy and inviting for all.
