How to Hygge (Hoo Gah!)

How to Hygge (Hoo Gah!)

The art of well being every day.

Hygge. Originally a Norwegian term for WELLBEING it was developed into a concept and way of living by the Danish in the 18th century and has been infiltrating the lives of SCANDINAVIAN countries ever since. ​

There is no direct translation in English, making it difficult to pinpoint its meaning. Some people describe it as “COSINESS” or “TOGETHERNESS” but its is more than these things, it is a MOOD or mental state, a CONCEPT, a way of life which can traverses all seasons. You can HYGGE alone with a good book and coffee, or in the company of  loved ones sharing a meal. Even places and surroundings can be Hygge-like which demonstrates how far reaching this concept is.

HYGGE really comes alive in the winter months, and  even in the coldest months when there is minimal daylight. 

At Maree Hynes Interiors we are all about HYGGE, with many of our clients sheltering from the WINTER DAYS in the comfort of a well thought out and well appointed showroom at 19 Theodosia Street Timaru, South Canterbury.

Our STAGED AREAS are what wins over our customers every time. We have at least 6 staged areas in the SHOWROOM on any given day.
