The art of hygge is about taking a moment to acknowledge life’s small rituals. It’s the seeking out of contentment in daily living, and winter is the perfect season to pause in appreciation and savour the simpler things.
The Big Brass
Side tables are some of the most practical additions to a living space as they provide the landing space for a variety of objects without taking up much room. Choosing unusual materials adds a depth to your living zone. Brass adds warmth and a sleek metallic glow.
I’ll put the kettle on
There’s little more satisfying than having a well-brewed cup of coffee with an old friend. If you’re not the stove-top type, it’s worth investing in a top-quality kettle – we’re talking looks and functionality. Choose a make that you’re happy to have on show, rather than tidying away in an appliance cupboard. All that’s left is to grind your favourite beans and let the coffee plunger work its magic.
Add some sparkle
Sometimes we need a little spoiling, especially on a special occasion. Be it an anniversary or a birthday, set the tone for the celebration with a beautifully laid table, a handful of candles and some gleaming crystal glassware. Cheers!
Warm and hearty
This is definitely the season for delicious soup, and let’s face it, few things are better than a steaming bowl of broth. And it’s the ultimate day-before fare, so all your work is done by the time your guests arrive. Splash out on some crockery with a beautiful glaze – they will also spice up the morning’s hearty oats.
