Pineapple (Ebony) Powder Room in Apartment Therapy | Hygge & WEst

As always, it's a thrill when H&W is featured out in the world and we never stop appreciating these wonderful press moments. First up is this beautiful, Pineapple (Ebony) in Caroline Jodoin's home on Apartment Therapy. She owns the shop Buk & Nola and her whole home is just lovely! 

Hygge & West in Forbes

We were so happy to chat about our business and the concept of hygge over on Forbes recently! Our key takeaway when it comes to hygge: "Hygge exists all around us at every moment. It’s out there if you look for it. Make sure you look for it."

A Pattern Happy Garland

December 18, 2018

Wallpaper Holiday Garland DIY | Hygge & West

Inspired by having wallpaper remnants and this post, Ola created her own garland this year, and well... you guessed it—we're in love! So, we wanted to share the step-by-step instructions on how to make your own in case you get the itch for some holiday crafting.

Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

You will need: wallpaper scraps, ruler, pencil, scissors, stapler, and string.

Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

INSTRUCTIONS

Select pattern(s) for your ornaments—one pattern will be lovely, but we decided to mix and match. We used Pombal (Coral), Snow (Gold) and Arcade (Cayenne).

You will need 13 strips of paper for each ornament:

  • 1 x 2” wide x 3” tall, folded in half lengthwise (that’s the very middle strip, the anchor)
  • 4 x 1” wide x 4” tall (innermost layers)
  • 4 x 1” wide x 5” tall (middle layers)
  • 4 x 1” wide x 6” tall (outermost layers)

    Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

      Use a ruler and a pencil to mark the strips on the non-patterned side of the wallpaper. Cut out all the strips and arrange by length. (If you know how many ornaments you’d like to make, multiply the above numbers accordingly and get strip cutting out of the way.)

      Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

      For each ornament, line up and staple on one end all the strip pairs and the anchor strip going from longest to shortest to longest again. Make sure the patterned side is always facing outwards. You can glue the strip pairs together for easier assembly.

      Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

      Pinch all together and staple the other side of the strips.

      Link the ornaments together with a string. You can use a hot glue gun, but it couldn’t be located in the garage. Enjoy!

      Holiday Wallpaper Projects in 10 Minutes or Less

      December 17, 2018

      Holiday Wallpaper DIY | Hygge & West

      Holiday Wallpaper DIY | Hygge & West

      I've been getting scrappy for the holidays with a few quick projects to add even more pattern to my life. First up, I found this Bruno (Gold) sample in the closet in NYC so wrapped it around our tiny little tree for some extra sparkle.

      I also got my very first real adult Christmas tree this year, so celebrated by topping it off with a Florebela (Fawn) star!

      Holiday Wallpaper DIY Project | Hygge & West

      I just googled "easy last minute tree topper star" and found a couple youtube videos that were simple to follow.

      You basically just fold it accordion style.

      And then cut in on both sides at an angle.

      Holiday Wallpaper DIY Project | Hygge & West

      Voila, a star is born!

      Last, but definitely not least, I was also busy wallpapering my bedroom in Queen Anne (Ebony) this week.

      What's the perfect thing to do with a leftover wallpaper scrap? Wrap a poinsettia, of course!

      Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul

      December 11, 2018

      Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

      The holidays just wouldn't be the same without a little touch of something handmade. Beyond the presents and the decorating and the parties, this season is about taking a minute to slow down, take stock of the year gone by, and appreciate the joy of the moment—sounds pretty hygge to us! And what better way to celebrate the season than with a festive DIY project that can be done (alone or with loved ones!) while snuggled up in your coziest flannels, a steaming mug of hot chocolate in hand, and holiday tunes playing softly in the background? 

      On the hunt for the perfect holiday DIY for your wallpaper leftovers? We asked crafting extraordinaire Paul Lowe, a.k.a. Sweet Paul of Sweet Paul Magazine, to come up with a fun and easy holiday craft using his Hygge & West wallpaper of choice, and boy, he didn't disappoint! Keep scrolling for his Otomi-inspired holiday diorama, and to read why handmade matters to Paul, how he celebrates the holidays, and what hygge means to him (he should know—Paul was born and raised in Norway!).

      SWEET PAUL'S OTOMI HOLIDAY DIORAMA

      Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

      You will need:

      ❄️ Wallpaper (Paul used Otomi in Red)

      ❄️ Paper glue

      ❄️ Card stock 

      ❄️ Scissors or craft knife

      ❄️ Bowl

      ❄️ Sugar

      Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

      Instructions:

      1. Start by figuring out what motifs you want to use, then carefully cut them out and cut them out from the wallpaper.

      2. Glue them to the card stock using paper glue. Allow them to dry completely.

      3. Cut the motifs out from the card stock.

      4. Fill a bowl with sugar and arrange your motifs however you'd like. Have fun!

      Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

      Hygge & West: What inspired this holiday craft and why did you choose to create it in Otomi (Red)?

      Sweet Paul: I looked at the wallpaper and thought that there are so many ways to use it. It's all motifs that can be cut out and used for a diorama like I did, a garland, ornaments, etc.

      Soft-Sculpture Holiday Ornaments made by our friend Tamar Mogendorff for Sweet Paul Magazine

      H&W: With so many beautiful holiday decorations available for purchase just a few clicks away, why do you think it's important to craft by hand for the holidays? What does that handmade quality bring to the season that store bought can't?

      SP: For me, holiday crafting isn't so much about the finished products as it is about the making of it. I put on some good music, pour myself a cocktail, and get lost in the material. Invite friends over to a crafts and cocktail night, get creative. And handmade is always best—it has charm and personality.

      Sweet Paul's Copper Leaf Wooden Spoon Ornament

      H&W: One of our favorite parts of this season is all the diverse traditions, new or old, people celebrate with. What's your favorite holiday tradition? Have you created any new ones that you plan to continue this year?

      SP: The main thing to me is the food. Growing up in Norway, I have traditions I like to keep alive. I bake certain cookies from my childhood, make glogg, and make a full Norwegian Christmas dinner with pork belly, lingonberry, potatoes, vegetables, and gravy. I'm a very chill person when it comes to other traditions; I don't need a flashy tree or tons of holiday decor. Simple is good.

      This Safari Animal Gift Tags DIY from Sweet Paul Magazine would be another great way to use your Otomi (or any wallpaper) scraps!

      H&W: This is the season is hygge if there ever was one. What are your favorite ways to add extra hygge to your home this time of year?

      SP: Hygge is a feeling you have inside of you; you can't buy it or order it online. It's hard to explain, but it is a feeling that Nordic people just know. For me, it's about creating a warm, welcoming home, being kind, and remembering that not everyone has a wonderful Christmas. But, of course, candles help and a good fireplace, too. God Jul!

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      November 29, 2018

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      For this last post in our Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book series, we wanted to focus on one of the most important parts of both interior design and book creation: the details. There are so many details that go into pulling a book like this together; from coordinating shoots to photo selection to interviews to editing to cover design, the list just goes on and on. Similarly, the details that make a room or home come to life are just as important; each small moment or object tells us something about the person or people that inhabit that space. The design—and the story—are in the details.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      We loved meeting Kelly Schoeffel and Matt Murphy's adorable pup!

      While capturing gorgeous wide shots of each person's home was essential to the narrative of our book, often the details were where the real beauty lived. We know that each of these small moments were lovingly and thoughtfully curated by the homeowners featured on the pages of Hygge & West Home, and feel it's important to honor and share those moments. Keep reading for detail photographs that didn't make the pages of our book, as well as what Aimee and Christiana learned from these intimate looks inside the homes and lives of the people who welcomed H&W into their worlds.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      This eye-catching gallery wall in Ana Gasteyer's home has since been wallpapered.

      Hygge & West: What makes for a great photo of a room's details, and why is it important to capture these small moments?

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Christiana Coop: I think these shots are a nice balance with all the wider angles, and they provide a tiny, more detailed peek at something of interest in the space.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Aimee Lagos: I find that the interesting parts are always in the details—what books does someone have, what do they drink or eat, what do they choose to collect? You learn so much about someone from these things.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      This shot made sense when we initially planned to highlight homeowner Viola Rouhani's collections, but we ended up going in another direction.

      H&W: As any interiors lover knows, design is all about the details. What tips or tricks did you learn from being on set for curating and displaying beautiful details in your own homes?

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      CC: Less is more. Did I already say that? My favorite vignettes were where it was clear the homeowner had a very strong connection to the object/s we were shooting. The more meaningful and personal details are usually more interesting.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      AL: I completely agree that items that held personal significance were the ones we gravitated towards when we were shooting. I think that a lot of our homeowners also did a good job of arranging and displaying their objects in a really beautiful way, which is not one of my strong suits.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Rod Hipskind's home, seen above, was the first shoot we did, so we ended up with way more photos than we needed. But of course, since he's a stylist, every single one came out beautifully.

      H&W: Why did these detail shots in particular stand out to you among the many that didn't make the cut?

      CC: To be honest, we probably didn’t take enough details shots, so these were most of them. We’d get pretty wrapped up in the big picture and at the end of the shoot we always had to remind ourselves to grab some details.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      AL: Oddly enough, details usually are more work—there tends to be more styling that goes into these shots than the overall room ones. So I think that some of the ones here represent a lot of “fiddling” with things to get the shot just right.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      This was our second photo shoot, at which point we thought the book would focus much more on DIYs—like this amazing wallpapered table—than it ultimately did. 

      H&W: How did the book's narrative, format, and layout influence which detail shots were used and which ones weren't?

      CC: Originally the book’s concept was going to be more focused on a detailed takeaway from each homeowner, so we did take more detail shots at the beginning as well. For example, the teacup at Stephanie’s house was such a nice part of her story and I’m glad we were able to make it work. The raindrops table at Angelina’s where she and her mom are sketching was so sweet. But, over time it didn’t make sense to include in her feature because it felt a little too “crafty” and also perhaps too forced, both of which we wanted to avoid.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      Glenn Lawson's home was so stunning that we couldn't stop photographing it. These were so painful to cut!

      AL: The layout also influenced which shots were used. A lot of the more “detailed details” got a little too ditsy if there wasn’t space to make them big. So, we had to pick and choose based not only on the content of the image, but also how it fit within the flow of the feature.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      The only thing better than a well stocked bar cart is a well stocked bar cart with a view.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      H&W: Of all the detail shots shown here that didn't make the book, which one do you most wish you could sneak back in?

      CC: The bar cart with the mountain view at Isabel Dahline’s was so dreamy. I also really, really loved that ham/football art piece at Kelly Schoeffel and Matt Murphy's home.

      Hygge & West Home: Beyond the Book Part 4

      AL: The image of Rod Hipskind’s art ledge in his dining room. The art was so beautiful and they had these little animals up there that kept it from feeling too serious—it was pretty much the perfectly styled art ledge.
