Though it’s unlikely to find any snow outside your home during a Texas winter, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the Danish concept of hygge, which has gained popularity in our culture recently. Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), which means “to cherish oneself; to keep or make oneself snug” is though to be the etymological origin for the English word “hug,” and perfectly describes the embrace that this 1925-built Kessler Square Tudor offers with its loads of cozy details. 

I had no problem picturing myself in this listing from Robert Kucharski of David Griffin & Company Realtors, and if you are a fan of spaces that spill over with hygge, you’ll want to nab our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. From the plentiful curb appeal and charm of the entire neighborhood, to the copious amenities this red-brick Tudor offers, you’ll never want to leave your cozy home!

The Danish concept of hygge is growing in popularity in this country. Hygge (pronounced “who-guh”) is all about coziness and comfort, creating feelings of warmth, contentment, or well-being. And it makes for a perfect home environment: welcoming and wonderful!

During winter, hygge is particularly appealing. When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing like an intimate evening at home with friends or family. 

As temperatures drop in DFW, I’ve found three luxury homes represented by Ebby Halliday Realtors that have plenty of hygge elements, from multiple fireplaces to snug seating areas. So curl up with a warm drink and enjoy!
