The Art of Hygge- Photobox style!

By now you’ve probably heard or at least seen the word hygge (pronounced hoo-gah). Hygge is the Danish phenomenon that hit the world in 2016. There is no English translation for the word however; in essence it means cosiness or the appreciation of cosiness and the nice things in life.

Sitting by the fire on a cold night, wearing big matching pyjamas and woolly socks, whilst enjoying a cuppa- surrounded by candles. That’s hygge. Watching TV under a blanket, eating homemade food. Having friends over and drinking wine. They’re all hygge too.

The Danes regularly rank top of the list of the happiest countries in the world. So they must be doing something right? Well, our customers know how to hygge too.
