Get Hygge (or Lagom) with The Home Moment this winter

Feel free to share:

THE people who live through Scandinavia’s long winter nights (and endless summers) have cultivated moments of dedicated relaxation by embracing a lifestyle that is all about ‘Hygge’, as is said in Denmark and Norway and in Sweden, ‘Lagom’ or the next big thing according to Vogue Magazine and Conde Nast Traveller.

Hygge (say ‘hyoo-gah’) and Lagom (say ‘la-gum’) each thrive on the philosophy that what is, is enough and so perfect in every way. It can be anything from lunch away from the desk (home or office) to a cup of coffee and everything about it is about living in the moment, being grateful for what is and feeling cosy and comfortable.

The Home Moment is embracing that comfortable state of mind this winter and doing away with wallowing through winter. Instead, celebrate the plunge in temperatures with a warm knitted blanket, a selection of lusciously scented, fully sustainable candles and while at it, light the fire and put on the kettle, and snuggle up with a good book or the latest binge-watch TV shows, or invite family and friends over for the evening.

So snuggle up, get cosy and embrace the dark nights with a warm blanket and soft candlelight from The Home Moment, online at and soon to be at home.
