Hygge Duke of York Square Christmas Cath Kidston


Create a Hygge Haven this Christmas

Living well and enjoying life’s simple qualities with friends and family is all part of the concept of ‘hygge’ (pronounced ‘hooga’), a Danish idea which perhaps explains why Denmark is said to be one of the happiest nations on earth. Roughly translated as ‘cosiness’, Christmas is a fantastic time to embrace ‘hygge’ and all that it has to offer. Here at the Square there’s plenty of ways to make you feel cheery and comforted as the icy cold sweeps over London. Why not wrap up warm in a new chunky knit, sit by the fire with a steaming hot chocolate and create your own little ‘hygge’ haven?

Head to Zara for a gorgeous selection of winter woollies. The store is just as popular in Copenhagen as it is in Chelsea and it’s not difficult to see why. This sumptuously soft cardigan is as comforting as a bowl of rice pudding on a cold winter’s evening.
