Hyg·ge. Noun: a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.
Hygge doesn’t just happen at home. We love incorporating this Danish philosophy into our office space as well. Here are a few ways we keep our office feeling cozy, especially during the colder months!
🕯Candles – The warm glow and soft scent of a candle is one of the easiest ways to bring the feeling of coziness into a space. We love this candle Montana Forest candle from Mae
☕️ Warm drinks – coffee and tea are basically on tap in our office. Bonus points if you have a variety of handmade mugs to choose from (which we do) and options for everyone including decaf or tea for those who choose not to drink caffeine.
🛋 Cozy seating areas – Creating comfy little nooks around your space is a sure way to kick up the coziness factor of your office. We love these ethically sourced Montana sheep skins from a family owned business in the Paradise Valley.
🎵 Records – Nothing sets the mood quite like good music. We usually keep the tunes mellow and soothing during the work day. Every now and then we will turn the hygge off and the party up with a dance track but most of the time it’s mellow melodies for our office space.
We hope this inspires you to incorporate some hygge in your special spaces. Want some more inspo? Purchase a copy of “The Little Book of Hygge” at your local bookstore.
