WElcome to the hygge & cwtch blog

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.

A simple sense of calming, cosiness and contentment. A feeling that we want our blog readers to achieve […]

A perfect way to dramatically change your interior is to paint an accent wall. You know that feeling when you start to get a bit of an itch to change things up in one of your rooms? For me, it starts to build slowly, maybe because I have been working on a project using a […]

I fell in love with hygge in 2007 when I first visited Copenhagen with my husband on our honeymoon. Here we are on the eve of 2021 and I believe that it is more relevant than ever in our ever-changing, chaotic world. It is really quite simple and anyone can tune into the hygge way […]
