3. Trends Faux Fur.jpg

With home decor feeling more and more great and grand, it is safe to say that interiors luxurious are coming back. People are going back to earthy tones, cozy textures and comfort. Faux fur is not only cozy, it is also welcoming and gives your home the extra warmth needed on a cold snowy night. To achieve the perfect balance, make sure to limit the placement of fur to one or two places. Your home should remain sophisticated rather than appear arctic.

Make sure to place your faux fur somewhere people can touch it. Your guests will feel encouraged to engage with the texture of your interior. Little details like that make all the difference. There is nothing like walking up and gently placing your feet on your warm fur rug and feeling the softness beneath your toes.

4. The Danish way.jpg

In winter it is important to sit back, relax and appreciate the little things in life. The Danes have consistently conquered the top pools as the happiest individuals on earth.  "Hygge" is a concept and a way of living Danes have established in the 18th century. The idea comes alive in the harsh, cold season Scandinavia is best known for. The term can be defined as a feeling or mood more than a specific word. One way to achieve a state of "Hygge" is by using candles and warm, indirect light.
