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.

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 […]

It’s the quiet time of year. After the festive madness and before the world starts waking up again for the first days of Spring. We tend to retreat to our homes to restore our energy for the year ahead, to allow ourselves to think and set some intentions for the long term. If there was […]

There’s one room in most homes which has the potential to enable and enhance self care. That is, of course, the bathroom. Typically a place of privacy, where we can reasonably expect peace, quiet and alone time, for however long it may last. Not a room to be overlooked as a purely functional space, take […]

In this month’s Inspired By…  post, we’re talking about a design style and ethos which is particularly close to our hearts here at Hygge & Cwtch Design Studio.
