Cafe Neige: Cafe In The Heart Of Daegu That Looks Like A Scandinavian Cabin In The Forest 

Cafe Neige

Tucked away in a corner of the bustling Daegu is Cafe Neige, a small, homely cafe. Its unique wood-centric exterior and decor, as well as how the trees on the grounds have their branches almost plastered against the windows to impart a sense of privacy, will make you feel like time has slowed down once you step into it.

Cosy idyllic decor that incorporates nature

Cafe Niege is converted from an apartment building, which explains its home-like layout. Despite having been renovated, the cafe manages to retain the homely and cosy atmosphere.

The furniture also has vibes of a cooling spring day; the colour combination of woody, golden-brown contrasted with white creates an idyllic aesthetic.

Tall windows let you peek out into the world outside, but instead of unobstructed views, you’ll see lot of greenery that filters out major distractions to retain the slow-living concept.

There are also smaller bay windows that frame the trees outside, presenting the view like a painting.

If you prefer to enjoy your food outdoors, there is a small little outdoor corner that lets you take in the fresh air and cooling breeze. 

Interesting photozone

One of the rooms in the building is converted into a photozone, and it resembles a real bedroom in a cabin home. See touches of European designs in the furniture here. Settle in for your own mini photoshoot and you’ll feel like you’re in a comfortable room in a palace or manor.
