1. Japandi is more than a design aesthetic; there are philosophies connected to the designs.
We have mentioned hygge (pronounced hoo-ga), but let’s explore it a bit more. It’s essentially the concept of creating happiness in your everyday life and making your home a sanctuary. It is a state of mind. Though we would all love for our homes to look like magazine covers, that seems like it would be devoid of happiness and full of stress – nothing could be out of place. Hygge allows for family, friends, and memories to take up our space. But with less clutter, it maintains that open and clean atmosphere.
If you want more hygge in your life, add soft, comfy cushions and large, fluffy blankets. That will make it impossible to walk into your home and not think, “I want to live here!” For the ultimate hygge, however, you will want to create a spa-like experience in the bathroom. That means going all-out: rainfall showerheads, plush rugs, giant garden tubs, candles to set the right ambiance, fluffy towels, and all the best aromatherapy smells to make your stress melt away!
