It is now the snuggle season, when we start to crave the comforts of winter, such as cosy blankets, hot chocolate, and cable knit jumpers. As we all now know, the Danes have the perfect word to sum up this concept: hygge (pronounced hyoo-guh). If you want the ultimate cosy winter evening get away, look no further than your log cabin!
To make it comfortable in colder temperatures, you will need to have some heating and insulation. Double or triple glazed windows are ideal, and so are insulated walls, floors, and ceilings. Heating options could include underfloor heating, portable oil-filled radiators, or electric heaters. You could even consider installing a log burner.
However, to all this you need to add that something extra to really make it feel like a welcoming Scandinavian retreat. A comfortable sofa to curl up on is a must, well stocked with plump cushions and soft tactile blankets. Choose long thermal curtains to add an extra layer of cosiness and warmth.
A generously sized rug with a thick pile will add to the feeling of warmth and help to soften up the décor (unless of course you benefit from underfloor heating). Make sure that the lighting is not too harsh, as this will make everywhere feel too hostile and unwelcoming. Ambient mood lamps, fairy lights, and candles will create a pleasant relaxing glow.
Make sure that you have a fridge and a kettle to stock up on drinks and snacks as you while away the winter evenings. Finally, a television or a sound system to play your favourite mood music is all you need for perfect romantic evenings in your winter bolthole!
