My Hygge Home: How to Make Home Your Happy Place

‘We spend more time than anywhere else in our homes — but how they impact how we feel have remained relatively unexplored. But we shape our homes and then they shape us. They impact how we act and how we feel. As a Dane and a happiness researcher I am excited about exploring how to create homes where we not only live — but thrive.’

Meik Wiking

My Hygge Home

The new beautiful book from the bestselling author of The Little Book of Hygge about how to use space, light and Danish design to transform your home.

Our homes should be a place of comfort, a place to feel safe when we shut the door. Somewhere to be ourselves, to unwind and create special memories. Inspired by Danish design and traditions, this beautiful new book from Meik Wiking shares how to turn your home into a sanctuary and live like the happiest people in the world.

With simple tips based on new research from The Happiness Institute in Copenhagen, this book reveals what makes a happy home tick: including the difference between space and size, the importance of lighting, and how to foster better connections with our loved ones. No matter how much space you have or what your budget is, Meik shows how you can use colour, light and space to create your happy place and celebrate cosiness the Danish way.
