Hygge Interior free Lightroom preset draws out the serene Hygge look and feel. It visually interprets this Danish concept of joy and coziness in living spaces, from lighting to decor. This adds a bright yet soft blue motif to emphasize the cool and calm feel of being home.
This is the preset to use if you want to feature real estate interiors in print or on social media like Instagram. This filter particularly matches the Hygge design aesthetic, but it is versatile enough for indoor spaces with diffused lighting. The result that you will get will always be tender and inviting.
Creates a Cozy and Inviting Atmosphere
Serene Homes. Hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah") decor gives emphasis to creating simple, comfortable, and restful spaces. Oxford English Dictionary defines Hygge as "to cherish oneself; to keep or make oneself snug". This Danish lifestyle concept has influenced culture and even design.
This is the philosophy that the preset follows. It, therefore, creates a tender atmosphere by creating a distinct color motif. It slightly warms images then adds cool blue tones in highlights and shadows.
In the above example, notice how all elements look tranquil and snug. Nothing appears harsh. It is a look that will make you want to cozy up under the covers or sink into a couch with a book.
Illuminates Spaces and Moderates Hues
Lightens. Hygge Interior preset amplifies exposure to give the image more light. After all, gently illuminated spaces are welcoming.
It also decreases contrast to subdue the intensity of some hues. This adjustment is vital to producing the overall calm and cool feel. Simply, all the preset's enhancements are meant to create a very chill vibe.
Softens Tones for a Tranquil Look
Delicate Tones. This is the best soft preset that you can use in real estate photos. Hygge Interior moderates tones especially for this purpose. It mutes dark areas and highlights. These improvements are also more finely applied in the tone curve.
You can examine the results in the above photo. The flower looks even more delicate. No shadows are too harsh, no highlights overblown.
Brightens and Retains Depth
Vibrant. Even with a washed-out look, Hygge Interior retains depth. This is in consideration of the decor's importance in interiors. To produce the effect, the preset crispens midtones by increasing clarity. It also amplifies vibrance for better illumination and richer tones.
As you may expect, it decreases saturation, too — but except for red, orange, and green hues. These are, after all, the usual color accents in such a design philosophy. You may find these in house plants, wooden furniture, candles, and some linens.
