'LAGOM' the Swedish word which means "Not too much, not too little" the concept of LAGOM in interiors is a dream come true for the minimalist.
Lagom is not just a style that you can have to make your home look better. It is a way of life. Bringing in this way of life into your home is all about creating balance. If you want to embrace this way of life, it's time you decide what is better not only for you, but also for your home.
It's time for you to let go of the things that have been making your home less homely and more cluttered, and bringing in things that will make your home appear simpler yet more elegant at the same time.
When you embrace the Lagom lifestyle, you are also embracing a more sustainable way of living.
With a Lagom-inspired home, you are sure to conserve more energy, try and reduce your water usage, reduce waste, use less power in the home (switch off appliances instead of leaving them on standby and have shorter showers for example) and live a healthier lifestyle.
Changing the way your house looks will surely help you achieve the sustainable lifestyle you desire. Moderation is the key factor when styling a 'LAGOM' home.
Take a minimalist approach and style your home sparsely with good quality Homewares.
Natural materials and simplicity are key, shown beautifully here in the stunning work of local West Cork artisan Alison Ospina, her greenwood Armchair and foot stool covered in the fabulous Orla Keily fabric are a classic example of stylish simplicity.
