Photo essay: Switzerland Musings – cozy vignette and hygge inspirations

Browsing through old pictures during this period of lockdown is fast becoming a favourite pastime with me.  Reliving memories of travel and throwback to the ‘carefree’ times when one planned trips and stepped out, many a time, on a whim is indeed comforting.  While things may seem really gloomy at the moment, like everything else, this too shall pass.  Till then it is time to stay home and stay safe.

The most recent set of pictures I was looking at was of my trip in January last year to Switzerland.  While I did visit some of the most amazing cities and museums in the country, what I really loved about the place were its eclectic streetscapes.  One thing I always looked forward to while travelling were the cutest vignettes that were set up spontaneously at street corners, window sills, store and restaurant fronts.  Curated with materials as simple as twigs, flowers, fruits, wool, discarded pots, pans and pieces of fabric, these creations were simply beautiful.

Here are some captures.

Looking at them, I realized it is all about being in unison with your surroundings and appreciating seasonal changes.

These little creations albeit simple are sure to add lots of hygge and perk up your mood for the rest of the day!
