That’s why today we are offering you some tips to decorate your home for coming Christmas in hygge way. How to create a welcoming ambience that lets you feel cozy at once? Here are some ideas.

Decor

Typically, Christmas is a little too cold to spend a lot of time outdoors. That’s why it is essential to bring outdoors indoors, which is a characteristic feature of cozy hygge decor. Go natural! Pinecones, evergreens, wood, berries and fruits are welcome to make your home feel like hygge Christmas.

Hygge is using what you have, anyone can create a hygge Christmas without spending a dime. Look for some DIYs on the web and repeat some tutorials to make your home decor more personalized and welcoming. Also making something in your home is the action of hygge, make some cookies, bake some cupcakes and share them with loved ones!

Lights

First of all, avoid turning on that glaring overhead light and rocking too much light on the whole – a cozy and rela space is usually about some gleaming light. Don’t limit the lights to just your big Christmas tree: think outside of the box and put twinkle lights in a bookcase or around a window. And consider leaving a few twinkle lights well into January for a mood booster and hygge well after Christmas is over. If you have a fireplace, it’s gonna be another cool and cozy light source.

Light up your and go for scented ones, too! Candles will help to create a mood and an ambience, use them for your tablescapes, too. DIY some candles if you want adding your favorite winter scents to them, it’s very hygge-like.
