about

“The most poetic of the [hygge books]; I found myself repeatedly returning to its list-like incantation of hyggeligt habits.” —Louisa Kamps, ELLE

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 to each other. When life gets hectic, work grows stressful, and the days fly by, unplug and tune in. 


Hygge anchors us, reminding us to slow down, to connect with place and with one another, to dwell and savor rather than rush and spend. 

When you curl up by the fire with a blanket, or have a simple meal with friends, that is hygge. When you acknowledge the sacred in the secular, or focus on people rather than things, or when you express love through small gestures, that is hygge. 

The Book of Hygge
 is an invitation to welcome abundance and contentment into your life. It is a call to live more fully by focusing on what moves you.
 
With beautiful full-color photographs and instructive meditations on relishing the everyday, it is your perfect guide to cultivating the coziness that has made Danes the happiest people in the world. The Book of Hygge is designed with an unjacketed, textured cover and crisp, clean interiors.

As seen in the The New Yorker, a cure for SAD in book form.

Editorial Reviews

“The most poetic of the [hygge books]; I found myself repeatedly returning to its list-like incantation of hyggeligt habits.”—Louisa Kamps, ELLE“Casts hygge as a state of mindfulness: how to make essential and mundane tasks dignified, joyful, and beautiful, how to live a life connected with loved ones. [The Book of Hygge] focusses on the concept’s philosophical and spiritual underpinnings rather than its quirky objects.”—The New Yorker“The Book of Hygge is likely to be one of the best guides to creating a more socially connected and rewarding life…A pretty book, soothing to look at, but it also offers a genuine challenge to develop oases of tolerance and peace at home and in the workplace, to balance the alienation, overstimulation and anxious striving of everyday life.”—Sara Catterall, Shelf Awareness (starred review)“Best [book] for the philosophy of hygge.”—Irish Daily Mail, You magazine   “A philosophy for mindful living.”—The Guardian              “A thing of beauty.”—Irish Examiner  “Inviting. In increasingly fast-paced and competitive America, hygge has considerable appeal; readers may very well find reading Brits’ compact and enjoyable book the literary version of the practice.”—Publishers Weekly“Filled with thought-provoking learnings, the evolution of hygge in its many forms.”—Interiors & Living
