The Neon Nine: Hygge

In my experience, the first week of October signals the beginning of cozy season. The air chills, the leaves start to turn, and we dust off our favorite fall boots. While the days are gorgeous, at night we simply want to come home and snuggle up with a candle burning and something warm for dinner.

The Danish have a word for this thing we crave come October: hygge (pronounced hue-gah). (If you receive Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie or IKEA catalogues, you’re probably familiar with this term.) Hygge refers to simple, cozy pleasures that add a sense of well-being to our lives. I’m finding myself indulging in hygge more and more as a way to wind down and make each moment a little more enjoyable. Items like warm sweaters, snuggly blankets, and ambient lighting help set the tone.

With snuggling up on a couch on everyone’s to-do list, I’ve rounded up my nine favorite items for embracing this delicious feeling.

1. patterned blanket, lulu & georgia – perfect for couch snuggles // 2. otomi throw pillow case, the neon bazaar – because you can never have too many throw pillows // 3. blue meanie socks, happy socks – attn: fellow beatles lovers! // 4. sweater, madewell – the perfect live-in-it sweater // 5. llama mug, anthropologie – favorite mug of all time // 6. candle, cupcakes & cashmere – I’m a sucker for candles that smell like burning wood.= // 7. pajama pants, eberjeyeberjey makes the absolute softest pjs // 8. spoon rest, the neon bazaar – this little guy will lend a hand when cooking soups & stews // 9. fairy lights, dormify – set the mood with these sweet lights

Peace, love & neon,
Marisa
