How to Add Comfort to Your Home // Saturday Home Series #2
It’s still February and I am trying to find comfort in our home. I am following the guidelines of the Danish word Hygge which is pronounced “who-gah”. I know, it’s pronounced nothing like it looks.
Last week a few of you thought I needed to grasp more of the overreaching concept that hygge is more of a lifestyle than just comfort and simplicity. I couldn’t agree more and I am trying my best. Sadly, by nature, my life is a bit complex. I do have a tendency to pack a bit too much in my days. So I am working on simplifying things and getting organized. All of my ideas don’t involve buying anything new. Instead, I am using things around the home that I already own to add hygge whenever and wherever I can
Earlier this week I shared a post about Finding Comfort in Your Home. There were a few changes I made to our home to make it more comfortable and I shared a lot of things you can do to add comfort throughout your home. Things like pillows, blankets and throws and good lighting.

Please don’t feel the need to publish this unless you want to punish me! I love those no-knit throws but was totally appalled at how much it would cost to make one…good grief! Makes me think I am not a person to read your inspirations. Maybe when the yarn has been around for awhile the price will come down…I can hope
Thank you for the “hy-gee” lesson; I will always remember the “say it 10 times” thing. Hy gee reminds me of the grocery store Hy-Vee which reminds me of you and HOOOGAH! Still don’t quite believe the concept though; I do totally believe in fung shway (I think it is actually spelled Feng something….where you have good energy in a room by not blocking pathways…
Finally, I want to say I have totally enjoyed a ton of your projects, keep up the good work/play.
