Keep It Simple

Over the past few years, Danish and Japanese home trends have influenced the popular interior design of homes across the world. Two trends, in particular, have Americans Googling how to properly adjust their home lifestyle.

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is of Danish origin used to describe a specific feeling or moment as special or delightful.

This is also used to illustrate a simplistic lifestyle in which you rarely buy new things that do not represent your beliefs. In order to survive feeling cold or depressed, Danes found warmth in the simplicity of wrapping themselves in a cozy blanket or lighting a candle.

Adopting the hygge tradition into your home requires simplification, awareness and intimacy. Soft colors, warming scents and low lighting provide a daily sense of hygge and help you celebrate the smaller moments in life.

The second trend that slid into 2018 interior design fashion is wabi-sabi of Japanese origin. Wabi-sabi is the art of finding the raw beauty in imperfection or something genuinely authentic. Rather than decadent opulence or modern, high-tech living, wabi-sabi appreciates the natural state of a thing – even the disregarded and abandoned places around the world.

In order to implement wabi-sabi into your home, you have to abandon the idea of perfection and accept that you actually live in your home. Use wrinkled linen sheets instead of pristinely ironed comforters and resort to organic material instead of faux fibers and prints.

Using both trends in a home, according to the Danish and Japanese, is guaranteed to de-stress your lifestyle and provide you with authentic moments spent with family and friends.
