    "Hygge" (pronounced ‘hoo-gah’) basically translates to a feeling of cosiness and contentment – it’s the Danish way of living well.

    Now, I’ve never met a grumpy Dane, so they must be doing something right, and with the weather slowly worsening I’m sure we could all do with a lot more cosiness in our lives.

    Hygge lets you forget about your daily stresses: it’s a small indulgence (whatever that means to you), it’s always there when you’re at your happiest (and cosiest), and is obviously something to be encouraged at every opportunity, in every space – but let’s start with your home.
