‘Hygge’ (rhymes with hue-guh) is a Danish word used to acknowledge a feeling, experience or a moment that could be described as cosy, charming or special. There is no equivalent English word, but it is also referred to as an “art of creating intimacy”. Several words can be used interchangeably such as cosiness, charm, happiness, contentedness, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness. It is not a thing or something that can be learnt, but if a something did exist that could illustrate the idea, this Beni Ourain style rug is possibly it … along with act of enjoying a hot mug of tea, embracing an enveloping cuddle, putting your slippers on, writing on a banana with a biro, doorstop toast, a blowy walk on the beach, a roaring fire - yup, you get the idea - totally satisfying.
