Hygge. The Scandinavian term defined as “a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” It requires being present and recognizing or appreciating a moment that feels special enough to have a name. Hygge brings me back to my days in Norway. A trip I will never forget. Here’s a way to create a little Hygge for yourself.
I’m working on several mudroom designs at the moment- it’s a new year, people just want to get organized! An inexpensive way to get that built in look is to use a reconfigured unit and build it into your space- like we with did with the Ikea bookshelves in Lou’s room. If you don’t have room for a built in unit, a storage bench is a great option.
