Winter Home Decor & Living Ideas 2019 | Ultimate Hygge Style

the people in the country of Denmark are
said to be some of the most happiest people in the entire world despite the
fact that they have to endure these long cold and dark winters they’re lucky if
they even get to see the Sun during this time of year so what can we learn from
these Danish friends of ours that’s all coming up next hi I’m Becca a
stay-at-home mom and homeschooling mom of three and welcome to the carriage
house a channel that is centered around enriching the hearth and home and today
I wanted to share with you ten ways on how you can create with the Danish call
Hyuga into your home this winter and you may be asking what is Hyuga and it’s
actually difficult to translate into words but it’s essentially a feeling of
contentment and happiness and coziness and pretty much whatever you’re doing so
it could be a simple act of folding a blanket and laying it on your child’s
bed that evening or it could be something like sipping on a hot cup of
coffee while just gazing out the window I myself live in a place where we have
very cold winters and very long winters and I had just learned how to embrace
the beauty of it and to do these 10 things basically that I’m about to share
with you so I think you’ll I think you’ll enjoy them so let’s go ahead and
get started with the first tip probably one of the most important
elements of Hyuga is lighting Scandinavians have a very distinct way
in creating light inside their homes you’re going to want to achieve a warm
glow similar to an evening sunset or the glow that comes from wood burning in a
fire in order to create a pleasant ambience and atmosphere of both light
and shadow which are both equally important come to you love all of Oh the and thus candy home would not be
complete without lit candles candles are just an amazing source of relaxation and
wonderment I sometimes like to light a candle when the Sun is about to set
while I’m making dinner that evening or curled up on the couch while reading
before bed according to a famous Norwegian saying
there’s no such thing as bad weather only unsuitable clothing but it’s still
nice to bring some of nature’s beauty indoors you can liven up your home with
houseplants of course which is lovely but don’t forget other things that
nature has to offer it’s just dried herbs and spices wooden furniture
coasters and even wooden kids toys things you need to find way now you’ll never change your mind one of the most amazing ways to create
coziness in your home is by having soft textures all around and about take cats
for example cats are amazingly soft and so cozy to cuddle up with on a cold
winter’s night what’s your big I’d love to add new
winter sheets to our bed I’m really loving bed scapes classic sateen sheets
and thank you bed scape they are sponsoring today’s video
but the pinions I have are my own and our genuine I will never promote random
things for you and that’s only products that I have used for a long time or
something new that I’m really loving well I actually promote on my channel
but when I first crawled into bed when my husband and I first got these sheets
we were like oh my gosh they are so comfortable you will not want to get out
of bed but the bed scape is an American brand that’s freshly launched so they’re
brand new and their sheets are designed in New York and our chemical gmo-free
which is excellent for keeping your skin clear and clean and healthy and these
ones which I have right now are sateen which has a really nice Sheen to them
and they also keep you warm and cozy during winter but their prices are very
affordable and they have free shipping returns for all US orders I leave their
link down below so that you can check them out and you’ll be getting a 30 to
40% discount off your entire order when you enter the promo code that I’ll give
you down below a third way to embrace the art of Hyuga is to see it finca is a
Swedish word and it means to take a break from work or activities of the day
and come together and share a cup of coffee or tea with maybe a sweet pastry
of some kind and sit back and really connect with one another fireplace is one thing that we do not
have and I really wish we did we do have a heater that looks like one but but if
you are lucky if you’re lucky enough to have one and definitely take advantage
of it there’s nothing like sitting next to a roaring fire with a warm blanket
along with a book during a cold winter’s night taking the time to prepare a rich
and comforting winter student some kind for yourself for your family or for
those in need is also nice one of my favorite things to do in the late
afternoon is get in the kitchen light a candle pour glass of red wine maybe turn
on some relaxing music while making something warm hearty and nutritious for
my husband and kids it’s also comforting knowing that their little bellies are
full and pretty soon we’ll drift off into a peaceful winter slumber indulging in a nice warm cup of hot
chocolate or tea during a cold and dark wintry afternoon is also a great way to
warm your soul whether you’re sitting down and sharing with your kids or loved
ones or just simply sitting in quiet solitude it’s nice to take a minute out
of your day to relax and unwind another tip I have for you is to keep lots of
different types of books placed throughout your home I love to keep
little baskets out of books around the house for a quiet evening at home whenever I make the time to genuinely
care for someone or put people’s feelings and needs before my own the
feeling is just amazing and the more you do this the more you’ll notice an
amazing transformation within yourself and lastly making new family traditions
is a wonderful way to cozy up with one another during this winter season we
love to sit down and plan with different types of seeds we’ll be planning in the
spring but you can plan a pizza night ritual every Friday or a family game of
movie night on Saturday nights which is always fun but creating new family
traditions and remembering the past ones probably is the most ultimate Hyuga
experience at all so I hope this has inspired you to create a little bit of
Hyuga into your home this winter thank you so much for coming back to watch
another one of my videos or if you are new then welcome we’d love to have you

and you’ll see them pop up here in just a second and thank you so much for
stopping by and I hope to see you in my next video bye sure

  5. Yessss….we do most of those things. I just love to curl up nice and cozy with a good book, a warm cup of chai latte tea, and a soft throw when its snowing or raining and chilly out. Have been looking for one of the fireplaces that look real. Used to have a brick one, but it was sold a few years back for some reason, thinking back it was a silly idea. Lol. I do not take well to the cold in the winter, but I just love being inside when its all snowy out. I do go out and make snow angels occasionally, my neighbors think I am nutso, a sixty five year old lady making snow angels. Only problem, my son has to help me get back up.

  15. This was such a great video to post since we are about to start a new year…. myself and many others are looking for ways to simplify our lives and calm things down a bit….I think we all have gone a little " over the top" sometimes and need to reel ourselves back in. Thank you very much for sharing this Becca. I plan to definitely incorporate this into my 2019โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Such a great video! Just loved it! I learned a few new cozy tips! Thank you!!! Warm winter wishes to you and your family!!!!

  17. Wow! I absolutely adore this. I agree, pets are so cozy and comforting. I'm so into the idea of soft lighting as a way to calm your soul. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

  18. Rebekah.. your videos make my day. For me, to be home on a winters day, curled up with my beloved animals, a cup of tea, maybe Vivaldi playing and a stew cooking is pure bliss.
    Bless you for your comforting videos:)

  19. This was a fun and interesting video. The dark dreary cold days of winter can become depressing. I loved all your ideas. Yes to cooking and enjoying a glass of wine and yes to a cup of coffee at about 4 in the afternoon (when its already getting dark!) as a pick me up. I need to get outside, if even for half an hour of fresh air so I don't get cabin fever~ even when its gross out it makes me feel better.My favorite winter tradition is a fire in the fireplace which I light almost every night, sometimes in the afternoon so I can enjoy it longer. I like the smell the sound well, every part of a nice fire. When we lived in out last home we didnt have a fireplace and i really missed it. I bought a little fake one which was better than nothing ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm really surprised your old farmhouse doesn't have one.Is there a chimney on your roof or the remains of one? I wonder if previously someone covered one or more of them up and it is hidden behind a wall somewhere? fun to think about. Thanks for a great video!

  20. Becka ,gr8 video love all the cozy ideas. Wishing you & your family a wonderful Christmas and New Year's. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰โ˜บ

  21. Becca,
    I already have many of these creature comforts incorporated into our lifestyle. It makes everyday life peaceful joyful and helps me feel closer to God and his promise of peace if we request His grace to bless us with that gift it is given freely and in abundance! Now that I've gotten all the sappy stuff out of the way……I think you should run for public office. haaaaaaaaa.Maybe you could bring us all together.โ˜บ

  22. Awesome video Rebekah! Great ideas to relax and keep calm. Iโ€™ve needed that lately. Having pets around at all times is another soothing way to relax. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully Earl is staying warm.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“

  23. Awww..Merry Christmas to you too and your family. Its almost here, just a few more days. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ•๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿต๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿญ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ€

  24. Love this video๐Ÿˆ. I agree with the comment that your videos just make me happy. I love the ambiance, those sweet cats and most of all, your precious daughter who obviously understands what a treasure pets are. So sweet. One thing though, I have cats and candles are a bit worrisome. I will burn one or two at a time in a room where I am going to be close, but the rest are LED timer candles. They can be a wonderful substitute and safer too. Also worth mentioning, many plants are poisonous to pets so I have very few. Anyway, creating a warm and cozy life is so important, and I love all of these ideas. I am learning to allow myself small comforts, such as a new comforter or quilt with the changing seasons, as well as small changes to decor. Nothing drastic since I am somewhat of a minimalist, but just adding items that bring me joy, even if they don't necessarily match. It really does soothe the soul.

  25. I love it! I am all about things that help us to pause and enjoy the simple joys that are all around us. I think these are especially helpful for people who live in areas that are cold and snowy in the winter. I hear so many people complain about it, but I love that kind of weather because I find it to be peaceful and so much more relaxing than the summer weather that makes me feel like I need to be outside getting things done in the yard. Winter is just such a beautiful time to slow down, cuddle up and eat things that make you feel all warm and cozy on the inside too! I think that's why Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons.

  26. Just found your videos. I too just ordered the sheets set. Love your voice! Such a relaxing voice. Merry Christmas to y'all from Mississippi

  27. This is the first time I have heard of Hygge. I definitely want to try some of these ideas. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜Š

  30. What was that soup/stew you were stirring? It looked to delicious. Please share! I have friends in northern Germany and have had the blessing of living hygiene with them. It is a feeling like no other. What we have to remember is that it is a state of mind as much as the things. You have to stop, savor, appreciate. New to your channel and am enjoying your videos. Thank you!

  31. I absolutely love this video! I do/have all of these things in my home as well… I just didn't realize it had a special name. (The learning never stops.) Thank you for sharing. I hope you and your sweet family had a wonderful Christmas!

  32. The Carriage House showed up in my โ€œrecommended for youโ€ spot and Iโ€™m glad I checked it out! Iโ€™ve subscribed and looking forward to watching your other videos ๐Ÿ˜ป. I read โ€œThe Little Book of Hyggeโ€ by Meik Wiking a few weeks ago and thought Iโ€™m already doing a lot of the hygge things; candles, throws,pillows, pets, plants, timber frame house so lots of ponderosa pine, books and more books (love to read and crochet), and for a cold Minnesota winter coffee or herbal tea is a must! My dadโ€™s grandparents came over from Denmark. I never knew them but my grandparents and dad were some of the calmest, happiest people Iโ€™ve ever known. Wishing a Happy New Year to you and your family from a grandma in Minnesota โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธโ„๏ธ
