Think cosy and no doubt you think hygge. The Danish concept, pronounced ‘hoo-gah’, is all about taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, from the warmth of a roaring fire, to a cup of great coffee, to a lazy morning spent in a tranquil bedroom.

THE IDEA OF HYGGE IS NOT NEW, IN FACT IT’S BEEN AROUND OVER 200 YEARS!

Hygge is all about deriving happiness from the little things in life. One of the reasons it has proven so popular is it doesn’t involve making huge changes or expensive purchases, it’s all about being comfortable. 

With this in mind we have gathered some of our favourite cosy looks to inspire you – each of the papers featured can be found in our seasonal steals collection or, for further inspiration, check out our scandi wallpaper selection. Grab a hot chocolate, sink back and enjoy a good browse. 

1 – Natural inspiration 

Capturing the tranquil essence of the natural world, in a soothing colour palette and simple tree pattern, our reiki wallpaper seems to come with calm built in. Light tones are a great choice as the nights get dark, bringing warmth and brightness to any space. 

Carry the theme through the rest of the room with uncluttered decor, natural fabrics, and pretty plants for a literal breath of fresh air, even as the coldest weather rages outside. Love the natural look? Browse our wonderful tree wallpaper selection.

2 – Warm woodland tones

This intricate yet soothing design is the perfect choice for a warm and cosy feature wall look. When it comes to creating a cosy look, it’s as much about colour as pattern, which is why we love the woodland-inspired colours of our Arran Stag wallpaper range. 
Continue this timeless look, by pairing with neutral paint and minimalist accessories for an autumnal look that will be every bit as beautiful when summer returns.

3 – Pared-back perfection

A deceptively simple style you can’t help but adore, our Milan Cork wallpaper is as captivating as it is calming. We love the light capturing-elements of this paper, perfect for cheering up the dreariest of days! 

This stripped back style is perfect for a hygge-inspired look, pairing beautifully with luxurious-feeling fabrics, muted tones and sleek silhouettes.

Creating a tranquil environment within your home can not only give your room a refresh but it can also be a great boost to your inner wellbeing too. So go ahead, grab your fluffiest throw and start moodboarding your relaxing new look!
