We closed on The Hygge Suite at the end of July 2020, and so the journey begins…
Currently The Hygge Suite, isn’t feeling very “hygge”. We inherited the old “North Woods” cabin style furnishings with the suite, complete with moose decor and canoe shelves. The suite hadn’t been updated since it was built in the 90’s, except for the new wood flooring you see in the photo above. We had some work to do!
Living three hours away from the suite, and it being in a fairly remote location, and not to forget the fact that we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, the renovation plan is a little bit of a challenge logistically. So far we’ve moved a few pieces of furniture in and rearranged the furniture.
Our plan is to fully renovate the suite to bring in that “hygge” feel to it. It will have a Scandinavian modern design to reflect the hygge origins, but also the origins of the Minnesota heritage. We’ll bring warm and cozy elements to the suite so our guests can truly feel at home.
Being that we’re first time hosts, this is definitely going to be a journey for us, not just on the renovation side, but also as a business. We love honest feedback, and so you’ll see plenty of questions and polls out there on our social channels to help us put together a design that you’ll love. Follow our journey @thehyggesuite and help us create something amazing.
From your hosts – Jo & Harvey
