Hello, I am Annie and this is my Hygge & Cwtch blog created in Wales and inspired by the Danish hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) way of life. I believe a lot of goodness flows from choosing to live in the moment and take things simple and slow. We all need a bit of time and space to relax, take comfort and enjoy the good things in life with good people. I believe connecting with nature's beauty and nurturing power and indulging in moments of everyday joy is a true tonic.
Who’s ready for Autumn? The most hygge season of them all is fast approaching! While the heatwave may be over and we are ready for some cosy Autumn moments, we still feel the pull of the garden and outside space. And as we retreat back into our homes and the ‘confines’ of the building we […]
Back in June we shared Part One of our Greenfield Project house tour. And now, as we take some time during the summer to rest and reflect on the first half of the year, it felt like a good time to complete the tour. We’ve already had a walk through the stunning open plan kitchen-dining […]
Creating homely homes with soul. That’s our ethos here at Hygge & Cwtch Design Studio, the focus for every project we work on. It’s not about size or even style, as such. It’s about finding balance and contentment through well-considered design. To us, that means more than just how a house looks, but, importantly, how […]
Oh how we love it when we get the professional photography back from a recently completed project! It makes us feel a renewed excitement for jobs which can often be years in the making. Two years in fact, for this particular home, largely thanks to lockdown delays. As a Cardiff interior design studio, we really […]

It’s been almost six years since we launched the Hygge & Cwtch brand. In that time, we’ve worked on numerous interior design jobs, from small space planning to full house turnkey projects. Each of these projects have helped us to develop and hone a signature interior style. Not something that we intentionally set out to […]
Welcome to the Lahaina Project House Tour, Part 2! This post is all about the upstairs rooms at our newly completed 5-bed holiday let project, in the stunning coastal town of St Ives, Cornwall. If you haven’t come to us via Part 1 of the house tour and you’d like to know more about the […]
In 2022, Hygge & Cwtch were hired to take on our biggest project to date. Tasked with designing the whole interior and rear outside space of the property, we were also asked to liaise with the builder to deliver the project successfully on site. Otherwise known as a turnkey project. Ten months in the making, […]
One of our signature interior design styles here at Hygge & Cwtch, is colour blocking. It’s a versatile trick which can transform the look and feel of a space with minimal effort or cost. We talk a lot on our blog about how we design for the five senses, with texture and pattern being integral […]
Designing a sustainable home is central to our ethos here at Hygge and Cwtch. Our passion for creating ‘healthy’ homes – evoking the five senses and enabling a positive lifestyle – is driven by our love and connection to nature. The use of natural materials and our relationships with suppliers and crafters who are mindful […]
