As winter nights draw in, meet the mood for Danish warmth and atmosphere and embrace the Hygge style
Hygge, pronounced “Hue-gah”, roughly translates to ‘cosiness’ and ‘special atmospheres’ and is defined as more of a feeling or mood, than a word.
“In our busy lives, it’s never been more important to sit back, relax and enjoy the small things in life,” says David Cormack, marketing director at Cormar Carpets. “Many of us take great comfort and pleasure in our homes and our décor is personal – it’s what we use to help us unwind, recharge and be inspired.”
Create a sanctuary you can relax in by indulging in a super soft, rustic feel carpet, snuggling under a sumptuous throw, sitting by a roaring fire, quality linens, candles in soothing scents, a good book and some ambient lighting.
“When you think of inviting interiors, deliciously soft and snug carpets instantly spring to mind,” adds David Cormack. “Warm underfoot, they are especially welcoming – and the height of luxury – when you’re coming in from a dark frosty night or a battering of wind and rain.”
For ‘Scandi’ pared-back style, a nutty grey carpet with pale wood accents, natural materials and textures will enhance this simple, timeless, interior scheme that is centred on warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance.
Yearning for a more warmer, indulgent environment? Then plump for a deeper grey carpet coupled with hints of burnt oranges and reds. Soften harsh edges with tactile and luxurious furnishings.
Alternatively escape the winter’s chill by experimenting with a textured carpet that can make the floor a real feature – adding the contemporary look of modern flooring with the warmth and comfort of wool. Cormar’s Malabar Two Fold range is available in two different textures – ribbed and classic basket weave – in a choice of 18 shades.
For a sinking pleasure, plunge feet into a super soft floorcovering which brings a new dimension to interior décor. Soft, silky-feel carpets, such as Cormar’s Sensation collection, teamed in a fashionable grey hue add interest to living spaces and bedrooms and accentuate the feel of comfort and calm.
