Nothing works better than soft materials and pastel colours to create a comforting atmosphere like the hygge art of living – think of soothing tones like dusty rose and blue-grey.

What’s Hygge?

Hygge is the Scandinavian art of living. The word evokes a sense of well-being and a warm and positive atmosphere. There’s nothing like pastel colours, rounded shapes and pure lines to help you create this mood in your home.

Tables, sofas, accent chairs and console tables will all have a more fluid and organic style in keeping with the emphasis on comfort and nature.

Pastel colours

Dusty rose and blue-grey are iconic colours in the Scandinavian palette that create an atmosphere conducive to relaxing and enjoying the moment. These colours add a note of Nordic freshness, especially paired with white or pale grey and wood furniture like the Japandi coffee table and the Naila accent chair available in several different shades.

The pink colour shades off into tones approaching peach, beige and lilac, while the blue encompasses more markedly contrasting tones. Dusty rose and blue-grey are well on their way to being crowned the new neutrals.
