You don’t have to travel to Iceland to pick up on some of its home décor cues.
Who wouldn't want their home to channel memories from their favorite vacation? If that trip you hold near and dear to your heart happened to be to the ethereal country of Iceland, then you're in luck. Decorating your home to mimic the sleek, minimalist—but still incredibly cozy—style of those who call Reykjavík home is easier than you think.
If you've never heard of hygge, familiarize yourself. More an idea than a definitive word, the Danish idea of hygge describes the joy of rituals and completing different tasks. This lifestyle is most commonly found in Scandinavian destinations—you know, the ones with terrible winter months that could use a dose of wool and candles. Speaking of candles, this is one of the most important elements of both hygge and Icelandic living. Find yourself a signature scent and stock up. There's nothing like coming home to a delicious aroma.
Wool is another important part of the Icelandic culture. You can't go far in Reykjavík without finding a store selling hand-woven blankets or extravagantly-dyed rugs. While we fully recommend making one of these a souvenir of sorts on your next trip, there are plenty of places to pick up Iceland-inspired wool blankets.
The following items range from minimalist chandeliers—don't forget the Edison bulbs for an extra serving of cozy—to Iceland-inspired wall art (gotta love those Icelandic horses). Whether you're looking to go all out in your Icelandic home decor, or just pick a few statement pieces, there's something for everyone.
