Ep #14: The cosy home make over

How to have a cosy home this Summer

Who doesn’t like a little makeover from time to time? 

I don’t know about you but I could get bored to always see the same furniture at the same place over and over. In fact, I remember being a teen and craving to cosy up my bedroom every 6-month or so.

It doesn’t mean I would throw away my whole furniture but it was such a refreshing breathe to enter in a “renew” bedroom… Think about placing the nightstand on the right vs on the left… or sewing one new cushion for my bed… or used my saved money for a new bed sheets kit etc.

Warning, it may be a tough love moment but I swear it’s worthy.

Let’s face it, running a home overhaul (or even just add cosy items in your home) is 100% easier when you can let the doors open to dry the paint… when you have enough natural light to work a good day… when some of your friends/ family can give an hand so you’re not in the midst of makeover for ages. 

Cherry on the top of the gluten free cupcake, most discounts about paintings, wallpaper, furniture, and accessories can be found during Summer. 

I can’t emphasize enough that you should think, design, and work on your cosy home makeover with fad trends in mind. 

It’s not because, right now, purple is trendy that you have to redo your bedroom in purple. What if in 3 months the trendy colour is pastel pink (hopefully not but who knows?)… will you redo AGAIN your bedroom? 

Unless you have unlimited money, chances are you’ll never run a makeover every 6 months to stay up to date. 

So.. what can you do? Think carefully about the colours you love, what they mean to you and what they communicate.

  • How emotions are linked to colours

No Idea Whatsoever About What Hygge Is?

 

Therefore, you’ve got no clue about this Danish way of life and, maybe, you’ve never even heard about that Danish word.

No need to hyperventilate. nor to worry. I got your back. 😉

👉🏻 However, if you’re already a Hygge fan, just skip this part and enjoy today’s blog post.

 

Still with me?

 

Ok.. awesome. Time to have fun.

 

What’s Hygge?

 

Let’s try to clarify the word first.

💕 It’s a feeling you can’t buy of safety, warmth, peace, calm, contentment, and everything in between. 💕

It’s a whole guide to craft a cosiness-based way of life for you AND your family based on:

🌟 cosiness,

🌟togetherness,

🌟 and uniqueness,

To me, Hygge is like a roadmap to enjoy simple pleasure, slow down, unplug, and becoming unapologetically yourself.

How do you pronounce it?

 

That’s certainly something you’d like to wrap your head around (at least at some point).

Yet, truth is, no one cares how you pronounce it as long as you can experience it day in and day out.

👉🏻 In short, it’s commonly admitted to be [HOO-GA].

Keep it simple and don’t over complicate the process. If you don’t get it the first time, no big deal.

 

Is there a Hygge lifestyle?

 

YES!! and without the shadow of a doubt.

Likewise, Hygge is more than just a list of things to do & NOT a decor.

🌷 quiet/ introvert? chances are you’re already living a cosiness-based lifestyle (Hygge) without even knowing it. You can model what you’re already good at enjoying that cosy, comfy, and homey feelings 24/7.

🌷 Newbie? and you’d love to implement that simple, decluttered, down to earth, ecofriendly, and comfy way of living for your family, that’s doable.

In short, it’s WHY I created this entire site: to provide you the tools, the resources, and the inspiration to turn your life into a cosiness-based living without adding stress. (Get a weekly dose of cosiness-based pep talk, join #TheHyggeLounge HERE)

🌟 It’s one thing to know what to do... However, it’s a whole new rodeo to apply or to follow through day in and day out. 

 

Where does Hygge come from?

 

Denmark (but the word itself comes for Norway). At some point, in history, Norway and Denmark were one kingdom only.

For the records:

- the first mention of Hygge is circa 1840 (which means Hygge is everything but a fad trends)

- Denmark is ranking on the top 3 of the happiest countries in the world every single year!

- the tax level in Denmark is one of the highest in the world. Yet, the citizens ARE full of happiness.

—> Who doesn’t want to model what the happiest people in the world are doing to be happy, content, and joyful day in and day out?  I swear I do (so does my Great Grand Mother in her journals)

 

Is this only a decor for Fall & Winter?

 

This is a common myth I MUST bust once and for all. Danish people don’t stop living 6 months of the year. They enjoy and practice Hygge ALL YEAR LONG.

As a result, they just adapt what they do. It’s easier to build a snowman in winter and it’s easier to hang out outside in the middle of Summer.

In other words, Hygge (cosiness-based lifestyle) works not only Fall & Winter but also in Spring and Summer.

Want a decor?  Ask a professional to set up a stage… But, you won’t get better in a snap because you own a fireplace and tonnes of fairy lights.

To sum up, if beating anxiety or winter blues was that simple, everyone would be happy and you wouldn‘t need a medication to avoid anxiety.

(Under medication? NEVER EVER stop without a professional help. Asking for help should be your #1 priority. No shame nor guilt to seek for a better health, or a better mental clarity)

Why would you spend $$$ to revamp your living room to look like a country living magazine cover? Want to show off on Instagram?

Having a cosiness-based lifestyle is NOT a popularity contest. No mandatory list of items to buy.

The fact is, Hygge happens in a Moroccan house, a contemporary penthouse, a cottage close to the sea, a tiny house, a small apartment that looks like a boudoir, or a fancy super modern house.
