Wallpaper is to design...

...what frosting is to cake.  In other words, an essential component of the good life!  I have been a fan of Hygge & West wallpaper for years and am so thrilled to finally get to met the women behind the brand, Aimee Lagos (left) and Christiana Coop.  Recently, the've expanded into printing some of their wallpaper lines onto fabric AND they've just written their first book called, "Hygge & West Home: Design for a Cozy Life."  In this interview we get to hear about how wallpaper is made, what their own homes look like, and why they think wallpaper is such a powerful design choice.  Before we get any further, in case you've missed the huge Hygge craze that's swept up the design world over the past year, Hygge is a Danish word that basically refers to rituals or practices that bring about feelings of warmth, happiness and coziness from spending time with people you love.  We'll start with Aimee & Christiana explaining why they chose this word as part of their company name.
