Mid Century Hygge


“It heightens your senses, whether you’re soaking in the tub, standing on the fur rug or sitting on the bench with a warm cup of coffee. That’s hygge.” – Michele Alfano


I love clean lines but overlay them with bold graphics, texture, pattern, so there’s fusion between the clean and the tactile.





Copenhagen Suggesting life on a houseboat, this bathroom brings the city of Copenhagen indoors with its use of natural materials like hewn beams, water-inspired colors and a living moss wall. But the purpose is beyond a nod to nature. “In the hygge modern bathroom, the sensorial design elevates the everyday,” explains Michele.






To achieve a sense of Nordic coziness, Michele balanced light-colored materials with the occasional geometric pattern and pop of color. The design flexibility of the DXV Modulus Collection was a natural fit, including its looks. “It’s a combination of angles and organicism, a perfect match,” says Michele. Finally, she added a hint of luxe with a built-in towel warming drawer and coffee bar—just right for achieving hygge.











The DXV Modulus Collection’s user experience is impressive. The vanity tray fits perfectly on top of the lavatory, on top of the floating drawer or even inside it. There’s a thoughtfulness to the design.
