Over the last year, Hygge has become one of the biggest lifestyle trends around the world. It’s the perfect remedy to seasonal blues and slowing down our busy, modern lives.
But what about other Scandinavian trends? Interested in the way that Scandinavia keeps warm, relaxed and saves energy, Insulation Express have investigated the major cozy trends across Scandinavia.
Of course, Hygge is an important term. There is no direct translation, but it basically means the feeling of contentment and coziness. To get the feeling, layer up under cozy blankets and read a good book. In Sweden, the term Lagom means just the right amount and is a great way to be more mindful in the day to day life. Rather than constantly aspiring for bigger and better, it means slowing down and appreciating what we already have.
Scandinavia isn’t just great for a relaxing lifestyle either, they also have a great approach to keeping their homes at just the right temperature. With well-insulated homes and plenty of layers for keeping warm during winter, they really know how to cope with the varying weather.
