One little word is the secret reminder of what really matters in life: Hygge.

CHRISTMAS is the perfect time to embrace it and THIS BOOK will show you how.


To me, hygge is:

- Meeting my sister for a walk in the park, chatting, laughing and clowning around, as if we were children again.
- Listening to the rain on the roof with a cup of tea and my boyfriend next to me.
- Drinking wine in my mum's garden
- Enjoying a cup of coffee with good friends, that becomes a dinner, that becomes a late-night drink, because no one wants the evening to end.


Though we all know the feeling of hygge instinctively few of us ever manage to capture it for more than a moment.

Now Danish actress and hygge aficionado Marie Tourell Søderberg - star of BBC 4's 1864 - has travelled the length and breadth of her home country to create the perfect guide to cooking, decorating, entertaining and being inspired the hygge way.

Full of beautiful photographs and simple, practical steps and ideas to make your home and life both comfortable and cheering all year round, this book is the easy way to introduce hygge into your life.
