Make Your Winter Home a Happy Home
Many of you will be familiar with the Scandinavian concept of Hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-guh’), the Danish notion of feeling contentment, comfort and well-being as a way of surviving the (mainly) winter months.

Nature's Winter Landscapes and the Art they Inspire
In 1565 he painted Winter Landscape with Ice-skates and Bird-trap, depicting an icy village scene with bare-branched trees, snow-topped cottages surrounding the central illustration of peasants skating on the ice. The piece is said to be an allegory for the dangers and temptations of human existence - with the heavily featured elements of ‘skating on ice’ and bird traps symbolising the uncertainty of life and its many hazards, respectively. Pieter Bruegel the Elder was a pioneer of this style of painting and what is now known as genre painting.
