Styles Work Together

If you’re familiar with Scandi design, you will surely come across “Hygge.” This method of the Scandinavian concept of:

  • coziness,
  • homey. 

It has discovered increasing favor in the U.S. over the past few years. Your residence should be your haven and provide comfort whenever you enter the space. Now, fuse that idea with the Japanese concept of “wabi-sabi,”
