Hygge (/ˈh(j)uːɡə/; Danish: [ˈhykə]; Norwegian: [ˈhŷɡːə]) is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.
Hygge – Wikipedia
Fall and winter is hygge-time for most Scandinavians. The darker and colder it gets outside, the more cuddly and warm we make it inside. And the mood we create, with the fireplace, candles, hot chocolate or wine and blankets is what we call ‘hygge’. It is definitely baking season and indoor hobbies, like crafts and knitting are popular too while we wait for the sun to return. I’ve created a room full of hygge with items from Soul2Soul, DaD, Yugen, Cinoe, Tuesdays and Refuge.
Dachshunds certainly have a disadvantage where reaching places is concerned but don’t for a moment think they can’t reach the food on the table because their motivation and persistence is strong!
I’m blogging several goodies in one picture today. Scroll down for the list with slurls!
I’m wearing the Jake outfit by Hoorenbeek, which is a complete outfit; Trucker Jacket, t-shirt, slim fit jeans, belt and boots! Sunglasses are also included but I’m not wearing them in this picture. You can find the pose I’m using at KOPFKINO, mirrored version included.
The patio furniture is the Bermuda Patio Set by CHEZ MOI. This is a new release available at Summerfest. Comes in PG and Adult versions. Texture changer HUD for seat cushions and pillows. Donut tray included!
The gorgeous and roomy fireplace terrace is from GOOSE and is now available at their mainstore!
I have decorated the terrace using the Tuesdays Wrought Iron Set which is available at this round of Cosmopolitan. Black and white versions available.
Yes, the puppies in the picture frame are my RL puppies.
It’s snowing today in northern Norway. It looks like we’re going to skip spring but hopefully we get some summer in between the winter seasons :p
Just in time before this round of Cosmopolitan closes tomorrow, phew, the beautiful Caged Candles Set from Tuesdays certainly deserves some attention. The candles come in Hanging, Fat and Skinny versions (Hanging and Fat versions are shown in this picture). Touch the candles for texture changer and flame on or off.
Now available in the Aphrodite mainstore is the Spring Rattan Set, which in addition to the patio furniture includes the Maple Parasol tree by Hayabusa Design! Add some champagne and macaroons with the Exquisite Display which hands you a glass if you touch the bottle and a macaroon if you touch the cake box.
When we’re not on SL, M and I often watch horror shows together on Netflix (screen share in Discord for the win!). Her passion for the genre has opened my eyes to Norwegian horror as we’ve watched Cave and are now enjoying the Bloodride short stories. Villmark and Cold Prey are definitely also now on the ‘to watch’ list! This scene I’ve created doesn’t look anything like Norwegian horror though; no dark forest, no looming mountains or cracking glacier… but would you stay at the Wander Inn?
Showcasing some recent releases from HJM Designs and Tuesdays in this post, where I’ve imagined a cozy living room nook where someone’s been doing a little bit of work in the afternoon but then decided it was time for food and wine instead… My kind of person 😉
Happy Tuesday everyone! Over at Enchantment this round you can find this elegant shabby chic dining room by Aphrodite Shop; complete, with a big table, chair with texture changing menu (touch the leg of the chair to bring it up) and animations, table runner and lights, a commode and sideboard.
Tuesdays newest release, the Rustic Bookshelves, is a set of two beautiful solid wood bookshelves; wide and narrow. They have a texture change menu with three wood options; Dark, Stained and Worn. They are Copy/Modify, can be resized and initial Land Impact is 2-3. Available right now at Cosmopolitan. I’ve also included some previous releases from Tuesdays in the scene; the Antique Desk and the Ringed Clock and Frames. You can find those in the Tuesdays mainstore.
The cozy bench, rug, candle tray, pillow and wall art between the bookshelves are all part of Barley‘s Scandinavia Set which was recently released for SaNaRae and should soon be available at the Barley Marketplace.
I collaborated with Mahogany on setting up this scene, check out her point of view here.
The sun is back again after hiding below the horizon for over a month and the days inside the Arctic Circle are getting brighter. I cheated and got to feel the sun again earlier when I visited M, it was so nice.
For the tasting room, bodega or bar, you can now have the Bodega Barrel Bar by Aphrodite. A beautiful decor piece, with animations included (PG/Adult). It’s available right now at the Man Cave event.
I decorated our own tasting room witht the Barrel Bar, together with the Lara Table and Chairs from Refuge. The chairs come in 5 different colours. The clock and the frames are from Tuesdays. You can choose light or dark face for the clock and it shows the time, day, month or season, even. Touch it to get a menu. The frames match the clock and you can display your own pictures by editing the frames, choose edit linked and select face to change the texture inside the frame.
