We have been thinking a lot about Hygge at Castles for Rascals. And talking about it a lot! So we are particularly delighted to share this piece on Hygge that came out of a conversation with our brilliant friend and talented writer Louise McCourt a few weeks ago.
And we've added some of our favourite super cosy things to inspire you to create your own Hygge atmosphere at home.
Thanks Louise for sharing your fab article and happy Hygge-ing to us all!
The other night over dinner, a friend of mine told me about an interesting concept she was going to try out with her family. ‘It’s called hygge,’ she said (pronounced hue-ga), ‘a Danish approach to enjoying time with your family.’ Now call me cynical, but as soon as she announced this I couldn’t help but think my family would probably have more fun with a box of Toffifee. In my experience, being told about a certain way to do things rarely turns out to be a good thing. So I prepared myself to be told that I needed to stamp on my iphone and set light to the sweetie drawer. But then she explained more about it, and do you know what, I was hooked.
