Warm but cool; contemporary but cosy – this Hygge style will bring balance to your home

The Scandinavian style we’ve all been obsessed with in the past few months: Hygge, is now easier than ever to integrate into your home. Combing natural materials such as wood and stone with contemporary designs and an on-trend grey palette can create a simple and cosy Hygge tone in your home.

A Hygge interior can work especially well in an open plan kitchen-living area. If you’re considering a complete renovation, start with the surfaces – add an interesting texture and neutral colour palette by cladding your walls in British Ceramic Tiles’ sophisticated Luna collection tiles. The subtle fabric-like print on a ceramic tile delivers a sense of comfort and harmony, while the neutral palette of Cloud cream, Dust grey, Glow gold-grey or Night anthracite grey will create a stylish, modern base for a Hygge scheme. Just top with a scattering of candles, some tasteful faux fur elements and plenty of natural wood, and you’ll feel a serene comfort every time you walk through the door.

Claire O’Brien, Head of Design at British Ceramic Tile commented: “the Nordic lifestyle trend has been in the spotlight for centuries, but is leading the way in the style stakes. Done well, it delivers an atmospheric feeling in the home for a cosy ambience.

“There are no rules with this look. Be playful with your interiors and create zones to amplify your walls, offering texture in abundance. Mix and match the sizes and colours within the Luna range to create a tactile look, one that you’ll want to reach out and touch. It’s perfect for those who like to be on trend, but prefer an understated approach.”
