While you technically can’t force the Hygge feeling there are certain books that recommend house tips to help get your Danish on. Think candles, throws and more candles. While this is great in theory, throw a three-year-old into the mix and it’s a disaster waiting to happen.

We’ve pulled together a few tips to help you on your way to achieving your Autumnal Hygge feels… with kids.


The Danes love getting their cosy feeling from candle light. A great child friendly alternative to this is add some light into your space with string lights like these from Not On The Highstreet.

Hot Drinks

While your kids may not be big on Yorkshire Tea yet, hot chocolate is usually an Autumn fave. The Danes believe Hygge is about indulging and enjoying it, so grab a cute mug and double up on the cream mmmm.


Scatter cushions are an obstacle course in themselves, but why not invest in a couple of kid friendly cushions to add a bit of Hygge to your little one’s bedroom. Here’s some of our faves from Zara home. Cute factor 10/10.


Cycling is a huge Danish trend and while this is very Hygge, we know it’s not that practical with three kids in tow. If you have a little dot why not get on the wheels trend with our NEW Hygge Houses pattern.
