Happy Autumn Equinox to all you Northern Hemisphere dwellers. I spent the first evening of fall celebrating the Danish art of ‘Hygge’ by snuggling with my dog and sipping cocoa by candlelight in front of a campfire. Did I mention the fairy lights I decorated with for good measure and the generous splash of Baileys I added to my cocoa? It doesn’t get any cozier than that. But here are a few equally cosy (or cozy if you prefer) photos from my travels, starting off with a welcome cup of coffee to chase away the rainy day blues at the renowned and ancient Caffè Greco in Rome.
When there’s a chill in the air, there’s nothing cosier than staring out the window at the holiday lights, especially if you’re a bear who lives on Candy Cane Lane.
There’s something terribly olde worlde charming and cosy about lanterns like this one at Yale University.
It doesn’t get much cosier than a good old Irish pub when it’s cold outside.
A canopy of autumn leaves always makes my spirits soar…
…and snuggling up in bed is pretty amazing too…
…but top of my list for instant cosiness is a good old log fire, spitting and crackling and throwing out licks of flame into the darkness.
