2016 has been a big year for In The Window! We’ve had a abundance of stunning new windows, a plethora of new windowkeepers, and a groundbreaking new platform for journalists and bloggers to boot! Inside, we give a recap of some of the most exciting happenings at In The Window in 2016.
Hygge (pronounced hue-gar) is a Danish word that roughly translates to a feeling of comfort and contentment, and a love of little indulgences. The sort of warm, cosy feeling you get on the inside when you have a few old friends round on an evening to drink a bottle of wine, or when you curl up in an armchair with a blanket to a read a book on a fire-lit winter’s night. The word has become symbolic in Denmark of their culture and lifestyle, but recently the word has been spreading its feel-good sentiments across the globe. Having a warm and inviting home is an important part of hygge, and we’re on hand to show you where to get started.
Art director Eva Morell’s Barcelona home, found on apartment therapy, is a gorgeous hodge-podge of decor and furniture accumulated over the course of her life. Her home has an intimate feel: it is a space that reflects the nature of its occupier. Having lived in a number of Spain’s most beautiful cities, the objects that adorn her current home have been acquired from each of her residences and have travelled with her ever since. “I love having people at home,” says Eva, “They feel so comfortable. There are good vibes in this place, I really think that.” Eva’s home is one that truly feels like it has been lived in. Below, we show you how to get the style.

It’s that time of the year again: Christmas lights, mistletoe, and far too much tinsel. We’ve enjoyed curating a selection to share how modern design can update traditional Christmas themes without sacrificing their nostalgic spirit. So warm up the mince pies, pour yourself a glass of sherry, and tuck in to this feast of wintry delights.
At In The Window we are all about storytelling, so now it’s time to share some incredible stories we’ve found on the world wide web. As 2016 comes to an end, we reflect on our lives and look forward to what the coming year might hold. This is a collection of a few good reads that have an interesting perspective on the place of design in the world today.
Is there any style quite as much fun as boho-chic? First used by nineteenth-century Romantics to describe artists who eschewed rigid social hierarchies in favour of free love, eccentric fashion and unconventional lifestyles, the bohemian spirit resurges in the freedom of these colourful designs. Discover with us the joy of unrestricted living as we explore this eclectic selection of windows.
Formerly a cheese warehouse, when Alexander Nijmolen bought his apartment in 2013 cheap pine covered the floors and the interior was dated—and not in the good way. It has come far since then. In this post we will take a look at the ‘masculine minimalism’ of the apartment, originally featured on Decor8.
We’re breathing in the crisp autumn air and enjoying the crunch of fallen leaves. From fiery oranges to plum purples, we also appreciate the season for its spectacularly rich colours.
