How to Create a Cozy, Hygge Living Room this Winter

Happy February, friends! Last month, I shared that my “word for the year” is hygge. Hygge is a beautiful Danish word that’s hard to translate into English, but it’s essentially a deep sense of coziness and well-being. I’ve been trying to embrace Hygge during these cold, Alberta winter months by baking more comfort foods, enjoying the company of my family and friends, doing lots of crafts, and decorating with my favourite cozy essentials. Let me share how I’ve decorated our living room for winter and 5 things that will help you create your own cozy, hygge space in your own home!

Make a Winter Wall Hanging for Under $10 (+ Win a $5000 Shopping Spree at the Brick)

We had our first snowfall last week. This is always a bittersweet day for us up here in Alberta, Canada. We sigh because we realize we need to dig up our old winter boots, make sure the snow tires are on our car and brace ourselves for freezing weather. But then we remember how beautiful and exciting winter is up here. Not only is our landscape transformed into a frozen white wonderland, but there is never ending entertainment that comes with the snow. My dad and Little A immediately made the first snowman of the year last week – they had a blast! Winter is long and cold up here in Canada, but it’s also so very beautiful and fun!

Today I wanted to share with you how I made a beautiful DIY winter wall hanging for less than $10 from a photo I snapped on that first snow day last week (you can download it and use it too, if you’d like!). Then, I’m sharing how you can win 1 of 3 $5000 shopping sprees at The Brick and 1 of 150 exclusive VIP Black Friday shopping experiences with the chance to win your purchase by sharing why you think it’s #betteruphere in Canada!
