Many people like their home to be practical. Others prefer the external beauty of it. And the rest, they love the ultimate coziness of their environment that gives an ultimate feeling, even a buzz, that all is alright, and so are you.

The recent trend has permeated interiors, architecture, art, and even fashion with the rise of the Danish lifestyle known as “hygge.” Hygge can be anything from cinnamon roll candles to warm slippers and hot chocolate, as long as it gives you that “quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality.”

If you’re not yet familiar with the world of it, the perfect place to get yourself warmed up is the beautiful corner of Reddit known as the “Cozy Places” subreddit. Created in 2014, the community has a whopping 1.8 million members who are totally into “cozy places from all around the world of all shapes, sizes, and price ranges.”

So let’s see some of their best posts right here that will make you feel like you're tucked into the warmest blankets of all.

To find out more about the cozy trend that has been taking interior design by storm in the past years, Bored Panda reached out to Eva Taute, interior designer and creator of “Hygge Styling” studio, which focuses on minimalistic design, natural elements, personal touch, and uniqueness.

According to Eva, our homes have a greater psychological effect on us than we think. “We have spent our whole lives gathering experiences of spaces. Some of them we felt more at home in than others. We cannot always put our finger on why, but we know it when we feel it.”

“There is a book called 'Home As A Mirror Of Self' by Clara Cooper Marcus and even the title explains it well,” said Eva and added that “Our home can reflect our inner world and how we feel about ourselves.” Not only that, but “We can also use our home to reflect the message we want our hearts to hear. It can be a place that supports our well being. We can do that by unraveling our experiences with space and finding those colors, textures, and materials that help us feel at home. Help us create that cozy feeling that brings us rest.”

Thus, home is so much more than just a place to put your head down before another day in this hectic world. And many people have found cozy interiors to be the most comforting and soothing. Hygge, a Danish interior design trend that has spread around the world in recent years, perfectly captures this experience of ultimate coziness and overall well being.

Eva explained that “'Hygge' is the Danish ritual of slowing down, being in the moment, and enjoying life's simple pleasures. People might think of it as just Scandinavian design but it is more than that.”

“It’s about recovering from your day in a space that refreshes you with the people you enjoy. This manifests its way into your home design by creating a space that reflects who you are, what you value, and what brings you joy.”

When asked about the ways to make your home feel cozier, Eva said that it’s good to begin with what kind of atmosphere you are wanting to create. “From that base, you can choose supporting materials and colors. That can differ person to person. For one person, cool colors might feel cozy, another person warm colors. Typically if you add more texture to your home (carpets, curtains, etc.) and play with the lighting, that can already make a big difference.”
