Because my interior is far from KNUS (it is sleek/modern with some retro details ) it was impossible to make a typical Knus Dutch interior photo, sorry dear Ricardo ...Also all the speculaas was already eaten and the tulips needs to be bought again.
Knus is indeed the reassuring coziness of being 'home'. Sunday afternoon: the aroma of herbs and spices in the stew on the wood-stove; the wood stove that burns and gives the whole living room a pleasant glowing warmth; a plate on the coffee table with bitterballen, cubes of Gouda cheese and mustard; a cup of hot chocolate and a large piece of speculaas while watching speedskating on ice on TV ... precious moments in time decades ago that will always reminds me of being 'home'.
Knus is a word we use a lot in the Netherlands, just like 'gezellig', which has almost the same meaning. Knus means: comfortable, cozy, intimate, atmospheric, nice, friendly, homely, cuddly.
