Taking a room-by-room approach, Chris describes the essentials of creating coziness from the colors to use, the textiles to incorporate, the decorative accessories and lighting to include, and how to bring a sense of personality and uniqueness to your own space. Using natural, or pre-loved and re-purposed objects is an important element of this ethos. Wherever you live, in an urban apartment, town house, or country cottage, Chris will inspire you to bring comfort and happiness into your space whether by creating a welcoming wreath for the front door made from foraged items, kitchen curtains made from old vintage quilts, eco-friendly natural cleaning products, or lavender bags and scented candles…
Your home will become a sanctuary, a home for the soul surrounded by the things you love, a place you will long to return to at the end of the day and one that is kind to the planet too.

Christiane Bellstedt Myers was brought up in small town Canada, where homespun items were a way of life. She became a primary school teacher and moved to the UK over 30 years ago. She has always enjoyed creating welcoming spaces and utilising items that had had a previous life. Christiane started hosting little fairs in her home, where friends and strangers asked her to show them how to recreate the same feeling within their own houses. These questions gave her an idea and in 2008 she started The Cozy Club, where kindred spirits gather for a day of creating and friendship. Chris has been featured in many magazines including Country Living, The English Home and Victoria. Her previous books, Scandi Christmas and Seasonal Scandi Crafts, are both published by CICO books. She lives in Buckinghamshire together with her husband in their cozy cottage.
