12 Hygge-inspired Ways to Cosy Up Your Place (+ a $200 Etsy Voucher giveaway!)

This sponsored post is written in partnership with Etsy Australia.

I can not tell you how excited I am that our Autumn is nearly here. For one, it’s my favourite season EVER, due to crispier days, changing leaves, more soup/even more toast.

Secondly, my birthday is in Autumn, so it always feels like my native season. I think when we are born is a total clue re the kind of person we might be, weather-liking wise.

Me? I am a crisp, mild, toasty kind of person who likes to drink a lot of tea and puff little clouds of chilly morning air about the place. I’m into cosy and comfy. I’m into my own version of hygge, pretty much.

If you don’t know about the Danish word/concept of Hygge, you’ve been missing out. It’s a small word that embodies friendliness, comfort, cosiness and a general feeling of all being nice and right, in that moment.

If you do know about Hygge, you either love it or are breezily insisting that Lagom has surpassed the Hygge vibes, or perhaps you’re going to tell me that Kalsarikannit is all there is? I beg to differ. #nope Horses for courses. Just because apricots exist it doesn’t mean peaches and plums are over, right?! Live and let Hygge.

I thought it might be nice to shake up those Hygge vibes, in this fresh new year, on the cusp of a new season, and consider making our little bit of the world as friendly and homebody-haven-ish as we can.

Here’s a bunch of very easy ways to do that – or to simply be inspired by – Hygge-wise. Homebody haven, here we come!

12 Hygge-inspired Ways to Cosy Up Your Place

1. Cosy toes

Let’s start our Hygge journey underfoot, with something colourful and cosy to set the tone. I like this rug (below) because it has all of the colours and is an invitation for ace times.

2. Comfy couch times

Next stop is an extra layer or two of pattern and texture for the back of your couch (or hung on the wall, even?) I’m into the plaid meets pop of colour here. It’s like Outlander meets Andy Warhol, or something…!

3. Friendly feasts

Ace snacks are super Hygge-friendly and these ramekins perfectly combine modern sensibilities with a retro kind of vibe. These would be good with a hearty soup ladelled into them, or with some crumble and ice-cream.

4. Slow living

Some slow-down pursuits are conducive to this gentler, nicer way of being. A little bit of succulent propagation? Some jam-making? A bit of bread-baking, perhaps? Some knitting, even? A slow read of the classics? I think so. I do.

5. Sweet light

Candles and Hygge are pretty much synonymous – and these geo candle holders are a nice mix of handmade local meets gentle-living. They have some other VERY nice candles too, FYI.

6. Green feels

The more plants the better. If you can mimic the great outdoors inside your place, than you’re on the right track. Cleaner air, cleaner thoughts, greener lines. Create your own little forest and you’ll instantly feel more positive about the world. And you will get the Hygge feels too.

7. Pretty walls

Layering your place with treasures that are meaningful to you is an ace way to kick start some nicer times. You can create your own artwork, or buy something interesting and eye-pleasing. I’m very into the idea of vintage movie posters, especially if they are a bit quirky and/or Japanese.

8. Games to play

Speaking of slowing down, how about a lazy ongoing game of some kind? There are heaps of vintage games ripe for the picking on Etsy, but I kind of super LOVE this vintage-meets-now handmade version of the classic Mastermind too!

9. The snuggle is real

If you’re keen to cosy down, you might need extra blankets, am I right? This Kantha style quilt is a delicious medley of prints and will guaranteed a comfy time. It’s also big enough for two. #JustSayin

10. Restorative doses

Be it an Aperol spritz, some mulled wine or a little homemade lemonade, they’ll taste extra delicious and feel extra Hygge in some vintage amber glassware. You could consider a bar-cart too, if you want to next-level your nice times?

11. Idea sparkers

What are you going to do when you are sitting around with your friends or special people or just by yourself? You are going to bounce ideas, hopes, thoughts, memories, dreams and wicked jokes off one another. If you are stuck for ideas this book is really great. I used to have it and it’s inspiration packed and very old school charming.

12. Soothing sips

If you don’t quite fancy a cool drink or cocktail in your swoonworthy amber glassware, then perhaps some freshly brewed coffee or a bracing cup of tea would be better? Again, I’m going for green because it’s comforting and reassuring. I’m also going for stoneware because it feels sturdy and nice.

    Hmm, it was going to be the vintange plant stands, because I’m on a complete plant bender, but I’m going with the handmade Kantha quilt. To me, it’s what Hygge is all about, snuggly contentment, curled up on a bleak day with a book and a cup of tea, ignoring the outside world, lost in your own.

    Number 9 the Kantha quilt is my favourite! Not only is it gorgeous but it’s mismatched vibe goes perfectly with my houses haphazard styling, which i definitely think adds to the level of coziness. No need to worry about messing up perfection at my place! I also loved the plants but already have those, and with my kids those stand planters wouldn’t be upright for long! Thanks for the list Pip, lovely ?

    The amber drinking set reminds me of my grandmother’s beachside home. We could drink home made lemonade in the little courtyard with the breezway bricks. We’d sit on the original 70s plastic outdoor furniture, which has bleached in the sun but remains as sturdy as ever.

    Oh how to choose! I’ll go with the Mastermind game, because it conjures images of playing a lazy game or two while wrapped in blankets on a rainy day. As a kid I used to play mastermind on the windowseat with friends, watching the rain outside and being cozy and warm with the open fire and blankets. That’s one of the best feelings in the world, btw, looking out into a frosty day but being warm and dry at the same time.

    The amber drinkware set is superb, simultaneously reminding me of sunsets and the glow of a warm fire – both give me that warm, fuzzy (Hygge, if you will!) feel. I’m all about jugs and drinking vessels at the moment – a lot of kombucha and smoothie making happens in them at my house! Also my glassware is quite daggy (in the mass produced kind of way, not quirky) So I’m in real need of an update! x

    The Australian Girls’ Book of Crafts, Pets, Sports and Hobbies really stuck out to me – firstly because I’d never even considered buying secondhand books from Etsy (I’ve bought a lot of fun handmade things from there though!) so this has opened my mind! And secondly because it gave me hygge-ful memories of my childhood. I’m a child of the 80s so it’s a little before my time, but I do remember reading books like that. I used to get out a whole stack from the library and go nuts on the craft sections… although my creations never looked quite as good as the pictures! I’m now permanently attached to my laptop (aren’t we all) but it makes me want to go back to a simpler time when I used to make my own fun, rather than just consume it… thank you, Pip!

    Definitely #12…..the stoneware coffee set by Vintage Collateral. Love it. Its always a bit weird when things you grew up with are described as “vintage” but my parents had a coffee set so very similar to this back in the 70`s. Ours was a beigey/brown colour (of course). It went with our brown corduroy three piece suite and our swirly paisley carpets…..

    Well obviously I want all of them BUT I think its the book that really caught my eye. How to books like that were a big part of my 70/80s childhood and I love everything about them. The illustrations, the photography, even the fonts are adorable! I picture myself having some chums over, drinking ginger beer and eating jam drop biscuits and working on our rag rugs or macrame plant holders <3

I’m looking forward to slowing down over autumn, making the new place feel like home, and most of all – curling up on the new (third hand via ebay!) green leather couch with my sausage dog Zorro. It would be gloriously fabulous to be able to curl up with the hound and have some colourful snuggle time with tea and scones and a good book.

    It’s a tough choice between snuggle blankets, greenery & tea but my heart is with Mastermind! Hygge to me is most definitely helped by creating the atmosphere, but there’s no good having a Hygge atmosphere if there’s no *hygge-ing*…! To me hygge-ing comes from crafting/drawing/creating together, listening to the radio and chatting, cooking and eating together, playing cards or other board games and generally just being hygge together. Mastermind brings back so many fond memories & now my daughter and I love to play it too ?

Just looking at them takes me back to my childhood. In winter my mum would make Lentil Creole (SO good!) and serve it with Black Bread in some cute green (stripy) ramekins and it was so delicious and comforting. The memory makes me think of lazy rainy days where there is not a care in the world. *happy sigh*

    Whilst I absolutely love the handmade wooden games, I’m a big fan of trying to buy from Australian Etsy shops, so #11 Vintage Australian Girl’s Hobby book would have to be my pick. My 7 year old is just starting to “discover” elastics, jumping jacks and other fun things people like me did in the “olden days” of the 80s. Can’t wait to tell her that she hasn’t reinvented the wheel and give her even more ideas of things to make and games to play to blow her expanding mind 🙂

That vintage kantha is just the bomb, honestly, how many pretty colours and patterns can you get in one place?! Love Hygge, and it’s not so distant cousin (at least in my mind) Fika.

I can picture eating minestrone soup out of those chunky ramekins, while snuggling my toes in the Moroccan rug with that devine Kantha blankie on my lap all the while dreaming the day away staring at the Breathless poster, followed by coffee from the stoneware servery whilst reading the hobby book. But wait, I have two kids and two kittens and most of these beautiful things will get trashed in two minutes… So with my reasoning based on what will survive in my house longest, my choice would have to be the Breathless poster!

    Back in the 70s I used to have sleepovers at my Nan & Pops house. Nana would play Max Bygraves on the 60s danish teak record player, and I would be wrapped in one of those black and rainbow granny square blankets playing Mastermind with my Pop. Well, he’d try and play. I was 5 so would try and cheat! The box was a standard cardboard with a picture of an older James Bond looking dude with a foxy Emma Peel girl in white gogo boots on the cover. So that would be my choice of item. Miss you Pop! Xox

    I’m moving house soon too so GOSH this voucher would help make my new place all hygged up!

    The vintage Master Mind is my favourite, because my grandma used to have it, and I used to spend hours playing it by myself when I visited her! (And Master Mind is really not a game that can be played on one’s own). Maybe if I learn to do hygge right, I’ll be able to invite some pals around and we can snuggle up in some blankets, have a nice cup of tea, and I’ll finally have someone to play Master Mind with! Ultimate hygge times 😉

    I absolutely love the vintage plant stand by Simply Chi! I would fill it with a variety of succulents and put it in the reading corner in my office for some living inspiration to admire while I work.

    My favourite is ‘the Australian girls’ book of crafts, pets, sports and hobbies’ (I love the perfectly parsed title too). As a child of ’70s Australia, I grew up with books just like this one, and I know that some of the seeds for my craftiness and love of my home were planted by these beautiful tomes. There is deep and true comfort in having familiar objects from our past with us in the present. That is what hygge is to me.

    The Vintage Kantha Quilt is divine
    Ideal for the reading corner of mine
    I have my recliner, with cushions to boot
    And this quilt would definitely suit!
    With my pile of books stacked up high
    I’d snuggle beneath, reading, as the day goes by…

    Vintage planter stand is my favourite! I’m moving to a new home in 2 weeks time and I am looking for pretty indoor planter stands, so I can have an indoor garden right next to the big windows looking over the backyard.

    That Vintage Kantha Quilt is absolutely delish and would add some extra “warmth” to our living area. Plus the colours conveniently work with our lounge room! Love Etsy and supporting small business.
