As the weather cools down, I've been looking at a few pieces to add a touch of comfort to my home. Pale grey with depths of green accents. Rich organic materials and simplistic functional design. As ever Pinterest has been a major source of inspiration for me, with nordic homes taking the forefront.
There has been a burst of conversation around the concept of hygge (pronounced "HUE-gah"), and in a sense, it's the ethos of enjoying the simple pleasures in life. It's interpreted on an individual basis and to me it means embracing local culture, being content, spreading positivity, being kind to others and most importantly spreading that feeling to those around me.
Your home is a representation of you, and creating this environment is not only imperative to your own wellbeing but to those which come into contact with it. A magazine rack to inspire and encourage physical engagement, soft furnishings for comfort and warm scents to create a loving atmosphere.

My shopping list isn't one entirely built by lust, but by function and shareability. I thought I would take a moment this afternoon to share it with you, and hopefully, inspire your own journey to hygge.
What do home comforts mean to you? Are you making any changes to your own environments this autumn?
