Product description

Product Description

Candlelight is hygge; the smell of freshly brewed coffee is hygge; the feel of crisp, clean bed linen is hygge; dinner with friends is hygge. 'Hygge', pronounced 'hoo-ga', is a Danish philosophy that roughly translates to 'cosiness'. But it is so much more than that. It's a way of life that encourages us to be kinder to ourselves, to take pleasure in the modest, the mundane and the familiar. It is a celebration of the everyday, of sensual experiences rather then things. It's an entire attitude to life that results in Denmark regularly being voted one of the happiest countries in the world.

So, with two divorces behind her and her 50th birthday rapidly approaching, journalist Charlotte Abrahams ponders whether it's hygge that's been missing from her life. Is it a philosophy we can all embrace? In a society where lifestyle trends tend to centre on deprivation - be it no sugar, no gluten, no possessions - what does cherishing yourself actually mean? And will it make her happy?

In Hygge, Charlotte Abrahams weaves the history of hygge and its role in Danish culture with her own attempts, as an English woman, to embrace a more hygge life. In this beautifully written and stylishly designed book, she examines the impact this has on her home, her health, her relationships and, of course, her happiness.

Light a candle, pour yourself a glass of wine, and get ready to enjoy your more hygge life.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a memoir 21 January 2017
By Anonymouse - Published on Amazon.com
I read about hygge in an architectural newsletter and when I saw this book on NetGalley I thought I would give it a try. Well I am still interested in hygge as a concept but this is definitely not the book for me to learn about it.

Charlotte Abrahams has written a memoir, detailing her personal, intimate experience of hygge, and I don't like memoirs. This is not the book to buy if you are after practical information. Try Christopher Alexander instead.

I received a review copy of "Hygge: A Celebration of Simple Pleasures. Living the Danish Way." by Charlotte Abrahams (Orion) through NetGalley.com.
