Curious about hygge and how to experience it? Cozy up on your couch with one of these books!
“Hygge (hoo-gah) is a Danish word but a universal feeling of being warm, safe, comforted, and sheltered—an experience of belonging to the moment and each other.” ~Louisa Thomsen Brits
Are you interested in learning more about Hygge The Danish art of being cozy? Me too! I am so fascinated a concept exists that doesn’t directly translate to English so I decided to read all I could on it. I checked out several books from my public library and thought I would share my impression of them.
This book gives you an overview of what hygge is and ways to achieve it. There are also recipes for hyggelig foods.
This is the book I am seeing all over Instagram. It is written by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute of Copenhagen. He gives both examples of how to hygge and also touches on his research behind happiness and Danish culture. Very interesting!
The perfect book to curl up and hygge with! Full of inspiring quotes and ways to embrace hygge and create meaningful connections.
This is great book if you have small children and are looking for ways to bring a little hygge into your home.
To me, this book had a different vibe than the other books. I thought maybe it was because the author was American, but he’s actually not, he has just lived in New York for a bit. My apologizes to Mr. Nielson for my mistake.
A great coffee table book full of beautiful pictures and recipes.
