When you're not worrying about the practicalities, you have more headspace to notice the curl of steam rising invitingly off a warm mug of coffee, or the mist rolling over the mountains as you wake up and peek out the window on a crisp spring morning - (Or indeed just the incredible finish on the corners of his cupboard doors)... things that London life often leaves little time for.
Hygge lives in Croydon, London, within easy access of public transport and a 15 minute drive to the M25 and the lands of green hills & quiet country lanes that lie beyond!
