The urge to nest and control our close environments has never been stronger. We spend more time in our homes than anywhere else—but the way in which our homes impact how we feel has remained relatively unexplored until now. Backed with Danish design principles, years of research, case studies and a sprinkle of hygge, Meik Wiking has created the ultimate guide to turning your home, office, or wherever you may be, into your happy place. The Hygge Home will teach us all how to create a much-needed cozy safe space in our homes into which we can retreat to escape the tough things going on in the outside world. Meik will explore the size of our spaces, the way we decorate our homes, the amount of natural light coming in, how much access to green space we have and how we can extend these design principles from inside our homes to our neighbourhoods and beyond. Meik is guaranteed to help you create a home and safe space where you can both live and thrive.
Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and one of the leading experts in global happiness. Committed to understanding happiness, subjective well-being, and quality of life, Meik works with countries across the world to discover and explore global trends of life satisfaction. And only someone absolutely dedicated to happiness sits in coffee shops across the world counting peoples' smiles. His first book, The Little Book of Hygge—which looked at the reasons why Denmark is the happiest nation in the world—became an international bestseller and will soon be published in 31 countries.
