That's down to one thing: hygge.'Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things.

    This book is beautifully presented, nice cover, quality paper, modern typeface, and beautiful photography. Looks like cross between an Ikea catalogue and a Waitrose food magazine.

Something which the Dani...

    The whole idea of Hygge is really lovely. Actually, I think that everybody follows it, having no idea that it has a name. Well, who doesn’t enjoy the winter evening with a cup of cocoa or the fragnance of just baked cake? It is quite a nice book in terms of appreciating life’s little pleas...

    If 2016 was all about throwing things away a la Marie Kondo (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing), then 2017 seems to be all about getting cozy. This is a beautifully designed little book which extolls the benefits of coziness/homebodyness and good ...
