Metrie is embracing the Danish concept, hygge

From glowing candles inside our shiplap fireplace to a faux fur rug, we have everything we need for a cozy night in. While the weather starts to sway us to move inside, it’s important to have a space where you can kick back and relax during those long months of hibernation and indoor activities ahead. Not sure where to start? We recommend embracing hygge.

Hygge (Hoo-gah) is a Danish word and concept that encourages you to enjoy the present, whether that be a feeling or a moment. We all know that the upcoming months can make us feel a little lethargic, or downright bored. This is where hygge comes in. Whether it’s enjoying a cup of hot cocoa or binge-watching your favorite Netflix series for hours (It’s okay, we won’t judge you), the concept encourages you to make the most of the cold, dark days and appreciate these little moments.

What we love about this concept is how it can be incorporated into your design style and the decor in your space. Hygge is all about creating a space that’s cozy, charming, and comfortable for you, so cue the chunky knit blankets and candles. And when you pair it with interior finishings, you’ll find yourself in a retreat you won’t want to leave until the last snowflake has fallen. Below are some hygge-inspired spaces we’ve found that pair so well with trim and moulding:

How would you incorporate this concept into your own space to get you through the chilly seasons? Better yet, how would you pair it with interior finishings? Feel free to share your spaces with us on social!
