In the Mood for Hygge

With the recent dreary and cold weather in San Francisco, my instinct is to hibernate and cozy up at home, with a candle, a hot cup of coffee (or red wine, depending on the time of day) and a good book. This atmosphere brings to mind Hygge, the ineffable Danish feeling in those slow, quiet moments – those magical moments when you are truly living in the present moment.

Here are some “Hygge”-like spaces by Studio Slow for us to picture ourselves in (a girl can dream). So slow down, breathe, and let me take you on a journey.

First, let’s hop in the bath for a long, hot soak.
Now that we’re all relaxed, let’s grab a hot beverage from the kitchen…
…or maybe from this one (because we like to have options).

Now that you have your beverage, let’s head to the dining room.

This tomato soup / lobster bisque shade exudes calm & warmth…
…and is carried through onto the ceiling in the living room…
…”grounding” the room but from above.
Maybe you squeeze in a little diary entry at this table.
It’s getting a little late – time to get ready for bed.
Sweet dreams!
