20 Scandi Lights To Achieve A Hygge Atmosphere In The Home

For those not familiar, hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”) refers to the Danish lifestyle concept roughly described as a feeling of comfort & contentment, which has long been an integral way of life for Scandinavians to get through their long dark winters.

As we move into the winter months here in Australia, there are certain ways to promote hygge by designing an intimate ambiance in your home; most affectively through the use of candles and lighting.

Dimly lit areas and low lighting are generally more affective than bright overhead lighting. We recommend switching off your main overhead room light and adding in candles, directional spotlights, pendants and table lamps to promote hygge in the home.

We recently reviewed Scandi candle holders to create hygge in the home so this list will focus on lamps, pendants and lights to achieve hygge. Here is the list of 20 Scandi Lights To Achieve A Hygge Atmosphere In The Home.
