Coziness means mulled wine, warm blankets, and most importantly -- curling up in front of a fireplace.
The Danish practice of cozying up, hygge (pronounced hooga or hue-ga), has taken the world by storm. It was on the Oxford Dictionary’s short list for Word of the Year 2016, and no wonder: No less than 20 how-to hygge books were published last year.
The concept appears to be fairly simple, highlighting the importance of comfort, cozy indulgence, and your closest friends. Of course, these hyggelig (hooga-lee) practices require a few creature comforts, including hand-knitted socks, a cup of mulled wine, and a cozy seat by the fireplace. As you can imagine, we’re fans. Below, we celebrate the concept of coziness with 5 of Our Most Hyggelig Fireplaces - wrap yourself in your favorite blanket and join us!
