The Danish obsession with all things cozy, known as hygge, is nothing new. Winter has tested the human spirit in Scandinavia for millennia. We make no claim to struggles with blinding blizzards, but we do know that acknowledging warm moments, both emotional and physical, brings comfort to any day the sun doesn’t shine. That’s why our Cozy Issue is filled with nods to comfort and joy. With everything from a happy diversion in an antiques-filled emporium in Clifton, Texas, Page 27, to a look at three very different but equally comfortable homes, we’re dedicated to warming the cockles of your heart. When Gordon and MB Howard decided to stop their winter migration to California, they translated their joy in blue skies and sunshine into a Fort Worth nest with a coastal vibe. Page 50. Designer Ginger Curtis taps into Scandinavian design for her signature look, and hygge is her calling card. See her extraordinary and extensive interior design of 12 spaces in a Flower Mound home on Page 64. Lynn Bostick, an interior designer-cum-painter, and husband Matt saved a classic midcentury house, then filled the happy home with Lynn’s artwork. See Page 72. While we can only imagine the depth of winter in Denmark, our roundup of things soft, cuddly, plush and furry, Page 92, will definitely ward off a chill in North Texas — where an outdoor fire bowl can be life changing. See Page 96. Wishing you a winter filled with fireside laughter, childlike wonder — and deep sleep.
