We were talking at the weekend, over our long, leisurely Sunday lunch of slow roasted lamb (with all the trimmings) about how much we all love winter. We’re all agreed in this family that there’s nothing nicer than cosy evenings snuggled up at home with lots of soft throws, fluffy socks, scented candles, delicious food and a glass or two of something special. Well, it seems there’s a word for this! It’s called hygge (pronounced hoo-ga), and it’s a Danish concept meaning exactly that: cosiness, warmth and a sense of wellbeing.
Founder of hush homewear, Mandy Watkins, says that she briefly considered naming hush ‘hygge’, but decided against choosing something that people might not be able to pronounce, but I totally see that it’s the perfect word for everything hush. I’ve always associated the brand with wellbeing, comfort and style, and it really comes into its own in the winter. So… are you ready to bring a big, cuddly chunk of ‘hygge’ into your life? Let’s begin…
Cashmere comes very top of my snuggle list. Love this cashmere beanie (£36):
And of course you’ll need some matching, baby soft cashmere socks (£40.50):
Now for a deliciously warm pair of pyjamas. These star pyjamas are just £44.55 at the moment:
Oh and a luxurious alpaka throw, y’know, for cuddling up with (£180):
Now, you’ll need a cup of something delicious, maybe a pumpkin spice latte…
…light a heavenly scented candle:
Nearly there. Now grab someone scrumptious to cuddle up with, or maybe just a good book. Shuffle down there, that’s it, really snuggle. Now doesn’t that feel nice? Thanks hush!
