Hygge is home for Vanessa. If you're wondering how she likes to keep her house, think tidy and uncluttered. She even has a personal Pinterest board featuring only white colored homes, appealing to her minimal design aesthetic.

Move aside millenial pink, a dusky mauve is stepping in as Dulux’s color of the year for 2018. According to paint brand Dulux, Heart Wood represents the warmth of natural wood, offering comfort during a time of change.
