Dear Reader, Remember hygge? The Danish concept of “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” made its way to the United States a few years ago, and the trend resonated strongly in the worlds of crafts and DIY. Ever since, hygge-associated imagery—lit fireplaces, cups of hot chocolate, stacks of books, and knitted home décor—has inspired people to create similar spaces in their own lives in order to manifest that feeling of contentment.

We were renting the self-contained first floor from the old man who lived downstairs, and I remember vividly what the thick floorboards felt like as we crawled and danced across them, the cold air rising through their wide gaps.
