Chicago designer Rebecca Pogonitz, founder of GOGO Design Group, credits the Scandinavian appreciation for a simpler, more soul-nourishing lifestyle—often known by the Danish term ”hygge” (pronounced hue-guh)—for this move toward coziness and comfort. “My clients crave time for self-care and family,” Pogonitz says. “Many had this growing up but now find their family members arent together at home even for dinner. They want to recreate that human connection.” Now, this desire is finding its way into home design by way of spaces that are sometimes called “pajama lounges,” a cutesy name that suggests a room in which to gather before bedroom, literally in PJs or sweats. This space is usually closer to bedrooms, often upstairs, as an intermediate area for intimate evening hours after dinner and before heading off to sleep. “Its a place that has a totally different identity from a downstairs living or family room,” says Stephan Burke, a real estate salesperson with Cassis Burke Collection at Brown Harris Stevens in Miami.
Rocks, hardscape, and paths. Rocks artfully arranged in their own grouping or along paths are another key because of their long association with Zen and “dry landscape” gardens. While smaller pebbles add a pleasant crunching sound for those who want an auditory component, they can be tough to traverse. Thats why Sachs instead suggests concrete pavers without gaps. For those with dementia, a path should always be laid out in a circle that winds around to the starting point rather than coming to a dead end that may cause confusion about where to go next, she adds. At the Marianjoy gardens, theres a labyrinth to practice navigation, which could be replicated on a smaller scale at a home.
