About this item

An inspiring new book from the bestselling author of The Little Book of Hygge about how to use space, light, and Danish design to transform your home to fit your needs Now more than ever before, our homes need to be a place of comfort, a place to feel safe when we shut the door. Our homes are where we can truly be ourselves, unwind, and create special memories with our family and friends. Inspired by Danish design and traditions, this beautiful new book from Meik Wiking shows us how to turn our home into a cozy sanctuary and live a bit like the happiest people in the world - the Danes. Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) is the art of surrounding yourself in comfort and is at the core of Danish culture in creating a happy space. With simple tips based on new research from The Happiness Institute in Copenhagen, this book reveals what makes a happy home: including the difference between space and size, the importance of lighting, and how to foster better connections with our loved ones.

Hi! I think I probably have the best job in the world - CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen.I have been described as "the world's happiest man" and "the Indiana Jones of Smiles" (and much in between) , and I am committed to finding out what makes people happy. At the Happiness Research Institute my team and I try to understand how we can measure happiness, why some people are happier than others, and how we can improve quality of life. I am also research associate for The World Database of Happiness and part of the advisory group to the Global Happiness Policy Report.Aside from writing several books and reports on happiness, wellbeing and quality of life, I enjoy photography and playing tennis (quite badly) with a friend
