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.
There’s nothing quite like the final two months of the year. Wrapping up against the cold air. Wet welly walks. Christmas shopping. Festive celebrations. School plays. Muddy football matches. An abundance of reasons to go out and connect with people and with nature. But with that, comes an unrivalled yearning for a warm, cosy sanctuary. […]
One of our key values here at Hygge and Cwtch, and one that we strive to achieve in every single project we work on, is putting connection at the heart of everything. Connection to nature. Connection to ourselves. And connection with others. It’s essential to our wellbeing at home yet is something that we can […]

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 […]
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 […]

The start of a new year is a great time for resetting the mind and making moves to put ourselves on track for a positive start to the year. So for our first post of 2023, we’re going to share with you a couple of ways of doing this in the home along with our […]
The Danish philosophy of ‘hygge’ is integral to our brand. Hygge and Cwtch – a Welsh term for ‘cuddle’ – really sums up the feeling that we strive to achieve for all of our Interior Design clients. A simple sense of calming, cosiness and contentment. A feeling that we want our blog readers to achieve […]
