Do you have a space in your home that you love to read in? A space that has that cozy vibe? Maybe it’s just a chair with a soft throw, or in your bedroom with your favourite scented candle.
Are you familiar with Hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”)? It’s a Danish word that can easily be described as “life’s simple pleasures”. The idea behind this type of decor is creating a peaceful and clutter-free space. Isn’t that every Mom’s dream?! Hygge is meant to be enjoyed all year round but it most often associated with the winter season.
Hygge decor is all about keeping things simple and cozy. Sticking to a neutral colour palette will help achieve this; light greys and creams to create a relaxing space. Cozy is key! Lots of textured comfy pillows and throws. A place to snuggle up and enjoy a cup of tea or hot cocoa; perhaps alongside your favourite candle.
Textures are also another important element of Hygge decor. It could be anything from a wooden candlestick, to a fur pillow, to a wool blanket. You could also add a textured stool to your living space.
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to utilize twinkle lights to add a soft and festive feel. I love turning off all of the lights and just sitting with the glow of the Christmas tree and twinkle lights in the garland.
A fireplace is a huge part of Hygge decor. It represents warmth and togetherness and is the perfect element of cozy.
One of the first places I look to shop Hygge decor is Wayfair. I have picked a few wish items for Christmas that would add the perfect element of Hygge to our home. All of the items I have chosen have inspired my decor; but they have so many other products you can shop online!

Don’t you just want to order one of everything?! I hope you are feeling inspired to add some Hygge to your home this winter season.
Disclaimer: Christmas is in a few weeks and everything from here on out will most likely be Christmas related. This is great though, right? This year I got some matching pj’s for the kids and I; and I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favourite pj’s for the whole family with you. Who doesn’t love a new pair of pj’s for the Holidays? I would have to say my favourite ones this Holiday season are the buffalo plaid sets from Old Navy. I bought a set for each of the kids and myself, and we have worn them multiple times. We decorated the tree in them and have had hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows of course) in them on more than one occasion. They also have the same print in men’s bottoms; however, no luck on the tops. I can’t imagine why…
All of these are from Old Navy and they have so many colour options to choose from. I love the thermal sets and of course the classic flannel for men. H&M also has cute sets for adults and children. I love this flannel set for women because it has this pretty gold thread woven through it that almost makes them feel fancy. Is that a thing? Fancy pj’s? If not, it should be. I mean after all, pj’s are an acceptable form of attire on Christmas. Cute, right? This set is under $35 and fits true to size.
These kids sets are also from H&M and I thought the reindeer was so cute! I love the little plaid set for girls; both are under $18. I also found a cute pair of men’s flannels that look super comfy. Carters always has such fun pj’s during the Holidays. When the kids were babies, 95% of their clothes were from Carters and I always have a feeling of nostalgia whenever I walk through the store.
Everly actually has last year’s penguin pj’s and I think this year’s are even cuter. These sets are $20 and are oh so cozy! Last but not least: a plaid flannel set I found for myself while grocery shopping last weekend. I purchased these for under $35 plus an additional 30% off and they are so soft and warm. They’re from Joe Fresh and they had so many other patterns and different colours of plaid. I have been all about red plaid but loved this blue/green combo. I would size up a size in these. That’s my round up for pj’s for the holidays and you better believe after I pick the kids up from school today we will be changing into pj’s for the rest of the night.
