3 tips for spring-fresh living joy.
When did you last feel "hygge" – relaxing on the sofa in a cosy candle-lit atmosphere, cuddled up in a fluffy blanket? But the alarm clock is starting to tear us out of hibernation, drawing us outside to welcome the first hints of spring in nature. However, the wonderful Scandinavian “hygge" lifestyle doesn't have to end once Spring arrives.
In the following post, I want to give you a few inspiring ideas to bring a very personal spring hygge into your apartment. You can achieve this in different ways – using either less or more colour. Of course, a good dollop of comfort is essential. Discover matching hygge-style paintings, collages and wall hangings in my online shop, wwww.tinystories.nl
CREATE ISLANDS OF LIGHT
What ingredient is lacking for that spring hygge atmosphere as our days become longer again? Light! Lots of light. Open those curtains wide, move the furniture closer to the window and create islands of light in your interior. Softer colours, lighter fabrics, and artworks in brighter shades help you develop a sense of light and hygge. The art print CALMING (from €54.95), available in 30 x 40 cm, 40 x 50 cm and 50 x 70 cm, is the ideal addition if you want your room to exude cosiness and lightness. The delicate motif of a female portrait was originally painted on vintage paper with hand-made Japanese brushes.
INDIVIDUAL COLOUR ACCENTS
A warm and neutral colour scheme results in a cosy home. Spring, however, can set new and fresh accents. Just as the first flower buds outside form small colour splashes in the wintery grey, patches of fresh colour will delight us inside. You can add joy into your apartment with flowers, candles and colourful works of art. In the art print SAND AND CORAL (€54.95), bright pink breaks through subtle and calm grey, beige and white nuances. The cheerful colour lifts your mood and makes you want to enjoy the spring season. It’s a high-quality reproduction with dimensions 30 x 40 cm. The original artwork was painted on sun-bleached linen with a Japanese brush.
THE SCENT OF COLOUR
Can spring ever become too floral? Not only do flowers cause pleasure when you see them in a vase, but they can also unfold their never-fading floral splendour on the wall. Allow flowers to speak the language of spring in your apartment and give them a place of honour on your wall.
The floral art-print duo FLOATING FLOWERS (€42.45, A4) and FLEURS SUR LIN (from €54.95), available in 30 x 40 cm and 50 x 70 cm,
will delight you with lasting floral pleasure. After all, Hygge is an attitude to life that simply brings joy.
