Master the danish art of hygge in your home this winter

Ballarat is a melting pot of artesian products that will spread warmth and calm into any home. 

Discover for yourself how to enjoy life’s simple pleasures by adding a little hygge into your favourite indoor spaces this winter.  
Wondering what hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is? It’s a Danish word that encompasses a feeling of cosiness, so it certainly makes sense why many people chose winter to start their new hygge obsession. 
Here are some ways you can add hygge into your lifestyle: 

  • Enjoy life’s simple pleasures 
  • Make your home feel cosy by adding local products and decorations  
  • Sip on a warm drink while you read a book  
  • Relax under a thick throw  
  • Stay in bed a little longer 
  • Make a fire to huddle around 
  • Come together with friends and family 
  • Indulge in a winter warming meal 
  • Delight in homemade sweets and comfort food 
  • Enjoy a long warm bath  
  • Head outside and take a long walk
