Hygge House Decorating Contest

Monday January 25, 2021

Hygge is a Scandinavian concept, a feeling of coziness and comfort in the present moment, and is often used to cope with the boredom, bad weather, and early evenings associated with wintertime.

Given that winter is well underway in New Enland, we thought it might be fun for people to create their own Hygge spaces this winter, using supplies provided by the library. Once the hygge space is created, submit a picture to Assistant Director Miki Wolfe* to be entered in the Hygge House contest.

The rules are simple:

  • The Sharon Public Library will provide you with basic supplies to build a Hygge room.
  • You *must* use the randomly assigned pieces of furniture in your Hygge room. You can feel free to supplement with any additional materials to help you achieve hygge (you aren't required to use the associated scraps and papers we provide with the kits. Those are just for fun. You can use the box provided for your room, or use another box if you prefer.)
  • Register online to reserve a house kit, available for pickup on 1/25/21. *Supplies are limited. One kit per household, please*
  • Decorate your hygge room at home. Once it's complete, take a photo and email it to mwolfe@ocln.org by 2/20/21. Photos will be posted on our Facebook page & voting will occur between 2/22/21 & 2/27/21.
  • We respectfully ask that all voting be limited to Sharon residents, and immediate friends and family. Unusual voting patterns will be subject to review by Sharon Public Library staff.
  • Our winners will be announced on March 1, 2021.
  • Space & supplies are limited. One entry per household, please. This contest is appropriate for ages 8+.

​*of course, if competition violates your sense of hygge, then feel free to just assemble the room, and take pride in your accomplishment instead :)
