If you’ve never heard of Hygge, you don’t know what you’re missing. The Danish concept of Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), means “cozy time,” a lifestyle and design approach that focuses on creating simple, connected living spaces that encourage togetherness, peace and warmth. Drawing on her Scandinavian heritage, Calgary interior designer and renovator Krista Hermanson of Krista Hermanson Design injects elements of Hygge into each of her spaces, aimed at celebrating family & friends and taking time to relax and recharge.
