‘Her book is a thing of beauty’ Irish Examiner

Louisa Thomsen Brits is half Danish, half English, a writer and journalist. Born in Africa and brought up in the UK, Louisa spent every summer with family in Denmark, learning the language of hygge to establish a place of belonging wherever she has found herself.

For Louisa, hygge is a quality of presence and togetherness. It’s a daily practice, a way to affirm interconnectedness and enjoy wellbeing. She believes that hygge is an experience of contentment rather than a pursuit of happiness and is about being not having.

As a Dane, hygge is bred in her bones. As an Englishwoman she can comfortably translate the concept and share its universality as an impetus common to us all.
