The Most Hygge-Approved Airbnbs in Dallas

The coziest local stays.

Though the word “hygge” first entered our collective consciousness last winter, 2017 was big on embracing the Danish term for coziness and contentment. Hygge certainly infiltrated interior design on Instagram — furry throws, sheepskin rugs, and images of sock-wearing and tea-sipping influencers filled our feeds. But maybe a complete hygge overhaul wasn’t in the cards for you this year. Chunky knits and blond wood may not fit in with your existing interior design scheme.

Luckily, you can still do like the Danish do during the most hygge time of the year thanks to a few comfortably decorated and completely rentable Dallas dwellings. Stay warm, y’all.
