by | Apr 5, 2020

Some people are natural socialisers – happiest out and about, being the life and soul of the party. Any excuse to get out… But we Scandis love being at home just as much… Being happy at home is important. Here are DU’s top tips on How to Fall in Love with your home – be it a house, an apartment or a room.

How do you fall in Love with your Home?

Falling in love with your home is almost like falling in love with a person – not least like falling in love with yourself in the nicest way possible. In order to love your home it has to be all about how YOU feel comfortable in your house, apartment or room. It’s about creating a space where you can enjoy your own company, relaxing, eating or working from home – that’s hygge.

Why Love being at Home is Important

On those occasions when you have nowhere to go, not liking being at home is soul destroying. It’s the place where we rechearge and don’t have to please anyone but ourselves – or those closest to us. The Scandis are homebodies – bars and restaurants are famously expensive in the Nordic countries. And the winter nights start early.

Fine dining has also not been part of our culture  – until now. Still, the Scandi nations feature regularly at the top of the Happiest People in the World lists. That’s hygge, being able to find and create joy out of the small things, starting with home.
