Most decor trends change over time but our prehistoric need to get cosy and hibernate during the colder, darker months often comes back to the Nordic style.
Believe it or not, Nordic countries are swathed in darkness for up to 20 hours per day during the colder months so their people are experts at embracing the winter - slowing down, building nests and using the long nights to spend quality time with friends and family or of course, supporting their mental health with hygge type activities such as knitting and crochet!
There’s plenty in this lifestyle for the rest of us to learn from, after all research has consistently shown that the Danes are the happiest population on the planet!
So how do you create that northern retreat where you can snuggle up with your loved ones and switch off from the stresses of every day life?*
