Surprisingly we hadn't until recently. With it being a hot new topic involving our homes and style, we just HAD to check it out and find out what all the buzz was about! So, we started our journey by tracking down a copy of 'The Little Book Of Hygee - Danish Secrets To Happy Living' by Meik Wiking.
As I sat down and started reading, the first chapter immediately grabbed my attention. Why? Because light is a BIG part of the heart and soul of my personal design beliefs. Meik was speaking my language! Then chapter by chapter, I kept finding myself nodding and giggling as I read along. It was one of those books I found hard to put down, and by the end I had an interesting discovery. Who knew! I'm ALREADY HYGGE!!! Ha!! Which is GREAT news for our clients who need a little hygge in their life, right?
There's a little Danish ancestry in my veins, I just thought that little Danish girl was just about the pastries! Ha! Turns out there's so much more I had no idea about! This next month we are going to be talking Hygge. First things first though - how to pronounce it correctly. (I get it!) As an American, I read it as "Hi Gee" horrible fail, it's "Hoo-Ga." Have those crazy Danes not heard of the letter "O"?? Anyways, I digress...
Stay tuned for more blogs and posts on our social media. For now, here's a sneak peak of what it's all about.
