The Project: Creating a Hygge-Inspired Nordic Haven in Woodend

 Featured in Country Life Magazine

Project type: New Build

Summary: In the heart of Woodend, a family with a deep affection for Denmark and the concept of “Hygge” embarked on a journey. To create a home that would embrace the spirit of cosiness, simplicity, and connection. The clients lived in Norway and Denmark for 8 years before settling in Woodend. Their vision involved a warm, welcoming interior providing ease, comfort, and the essence of “hygge.” They aspired to have living spaces that exuded a sense of comfort and welcome. The focus was on life’s simple pleasures and shared moments with loved ones. The guiding principle of the project was “Less is more – fewer pieces that are of good quality and meaningful.” The goal was to create a space that radiated comfort, warmth, and a casual, inviting ambience.
