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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

With the colder weather drawing in, it’s natural for us to retreat into our homes and spend less time outdoors. Our favourite time to embrace everything we love the most about our homes, it’s the most hygge time of year! However, spending more time indoors means we can lose some of the benefits of being […]
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 […]
Here at Hygge & Cwtch Design Studio, we’re very much about enjoying the moment and living in the here and now. Embracing the seasons and aligning with nature to create a home connected to the world around us. So as we step into a new season, we think it’s a good time to share our […]
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 […]
With nature, wellbeing and simple living at the core of the Hygge & Cwtch ethos, we consider outdoor spaces as part of the home. Embracing the concept of biophilia, connecting home and nature for true indoor-outdoor living. As such, we’re always looking for new ways that we can incorporate our outside spaces into our daily […]
