A gezellig atmosphere in an old Dutch house

Private residence, Muiden, the Netherlands

Gezellig and the adjective gezelligheid are Dutch words whose essence doesn’t translate into English. Gezellig means cosy or nice. But it can also mean convivialfun or quaint. And to indicate belonging, time spent with friends and loved ones, or general togetherness. Gezelligheid was what the owners of this Dutch residence wanted. The solution: Original Chapel Parquet in Elsey. The result really is gezellig, though do excuse us if we leave the interpretation of that to you.
