Hygge Inspiration For You and Your Home; Find your moment

Unless you've been avoiding the trends, you will have noticed a whole lot of Danish inspiration this autumn in the form of Hygge (pronounced hue-gah). So unique is the term, it has no literal translation in English. It's about taking pleasure in the every day things, finding a moment and making it more meaningful. Whether it's lingering over a cup of tea, lighting some candles and reading a book; Hygge means creating a relaxed, cosy atmosphere. Whether with friends or being kind to yourself, Hygge is a happy space for you to be at one or share with your nearest and dearest.

Today I am taking you through some handpicked ethically made gifts and homewares that can help you on your quest to find your very own Hygge (main image above features our reclaimed timber table with copper pipe base).
