Another month has gone by and days are getting darker and colder as we speak. November has been a very cozy month, and we have seen many lovely moments shared on the Instagram feed (in-fact we have now passed over 500 images!) For me November has been all about savouring the last of autumn as well as greeting winter. I’ve packed down my summer clothes and changed them with warm winter clothes, scarfs, hats and gloves to be prepared for what’s in store.. For me the Christmas decorations are not put out until December starts, but I have been out purchasing some new items which I am very excited to start incorporating into my home. Oh, and I have been lighting candles pretty much every evening (as well as a couple of grey days when I needed a bit of an extra pick-me-up.)

I have selected 4 of the November images from Instagram to share with you, as well as a little quote from each about what That Scandinavian Feeling is to them. If you haven’t already had a look, be sure to check out the beautiful #thatscandinavianfeeling feed where all the hygge is happening! I’m especially looking forward to see what festive images will pop up now as we are heading into December. Just click on the hashtag below and it will take you to the feed;

​”For me That Scandinavian Feeling is the cold & Nordic light, the raw nature and the faded palette.”

“​To me, That Scandinavian Feeling is enjoying the little things and being cozy and snug inside when it’s so cold and dark outside. A new knitting project and a cup of tea goes a long way!”

“​For me when that first snow comes it triggers the Christmas feeling. Living in Finland snow is a must at Christmas (otherwise it doesn’t feel like Christmas.. Yes we have had Christmases without snow too but definitely something missing then!) Winter is a long season in Finland and snow lightens everything up! It’s fun to play in the snow, making snow-angels, riding the sledge… Winter-sports are not really my thing but I love long walks in the neighbourhood on a crispy winter day. I also love the hygge effect snow gives when you are cozy indoors with the fireplace on and a lot of candles lit + warm chocolate and/or coffee is a must too! It snowed here a little last night so now the snow is back again. Really hope we will get some more and it stays until Christmas!”

“For me That Scandinavian Feeling definitely means chunky layers and lots of them! It’s about being relaxed and comfortable whilst embracing the less is more lifestyle – only wearing and surrounding yourself with things and people that are special to you!”


I hope you get inspired by these lovely images and words to join in and share your images on Instagram too! Or even just some words here in the comment section as I would love to hear. So, what is That Scandinavian Feeling to you? How do you create a cozy environment at home at Christmas time or make those dark days more bearable during winter?
