Valentines means Hygge for couples
If you are a fan of My Luxury Linen, you may already know about the concept of "Hygge" or "comfort-mood". It evokes a simpler lifestyle, such as chocolate in front of a log fire, crisp sheets with a throw on the bed or even a chunky, knitted sweater on a cold day.
Beyond the physical reality, hygge is a specific mindset that focuses on relaxation, enjoyment and cultivating those special moments. It's ideal for celebrating Valentine's Day, making that romantic evening a little more magical.
BANISH THE HYGGE-KILLERS
There are few things more effective than text notifications or Facebook to erase yourcosymood. Leave your phone in the sitting room and banish all screens from the bedroom. Tonight, the only person you want to talk to is right next to you.
Another way to quash the mood is clutter. There are few things less appealing than used plates, dirty surfaces and mounds of washing on the floor. Keep your room inviting with sleek lines, clean tables and fresh linen. Even if you are short on space, grab a box and banish the clutter to a corner that's out of sight. Don't forget tovacuumthe floor and you can cover up tired carpets or floorboards with an inexpensive rug. If you do have the space, consider a reading corner for your books complete with lighting and a comfy chair. Books collect dust incredibly quickly and they are the third-biggest sources of bedtime annoyance for partners (after snoring and phones!).
