We just came across a great blog by Alex Beuachamp named Hygge House. Hygge (hu-gah) is a Danish word that describe a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary everyday things simply extraordinary. Hygge has something to do with why the Danes are the happiest. Check out the CBS interview that backs up this wild claim!
Think cosiness, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, fellowship, simpleness and living well – they are often used to describe the idea of Hygge and are why you are reading about it on Small House Style.
