Hygge (hoo-gah) is the Danish word for "cozy." It's gotten quite a bit of traction in the past few years as Denmark has gained a reputation for being one of the happiest places to live. A big part of Danish lifestyle is hygge and engaging in hygge activities like chilling on the couch with family, having a nice dinner party with friends, or just sitting and reading a book in your favorite spot. All of the Nordic countries actually share this idea but just have different words for it. There's usually lots of candles, warm blankets, fluffy pillows, and not much "noise." My vision for this project is that it's going to be someone's hygge get away. Something super cozy and chic while also rustic. I want this to be a little house I can decorate year round and maybe keep out since it's so small. Perhaps it can be Santa's hygge house! The man probably needs a rest every now and then
This project started as a theme for the Cozy Corner NAME project and morphed into a lovely Pool House and Summer Kitchen inspired by Architect John Malick and Associates. It's been another attempt to master the use of real stone and slate. The slate countertops have been cut from a very old real slate roof tile from my sisters home in France.
Building the Greenleaf McKinley Dollhouse with just a few modifications. My thanks for those who have shared their building of this kit. I have learned a lot from their pictures and blogs. A special thankyou to Gina who is currently blogging her build of the McKinley on her Facebook page, More Minis Dollhouses.
Husband, again, will be doing the wiring. The false walls of this build will help hide the electrical wiring and terminal block.
This is a quickie! Between selling my house and moving in with the beau, real life has been crazy. But now it's settled and I can't let this kit sit on the shelf without trying to get some semblance of a house built for the contest! I work best under deadline so better get to work.
