Swedish concept of LAGOM

What is Lagom?

 "Not too much, not too little."

While Hygge is all about staying in with the loved ones, getting cosy and taking the time to enjoy a moment (whatever the weather), Lagom is all about moderation and finding balance in your everyday life.

The foundation of Lagom is creating a perfect balance, believing if you take just enough from life for yourself and you leave enough for others to be happy.

How does Lagom translate to the home?

Lagom defines a sustainable way of living. 

Upcycling, recycling and using sustainable materials is the way to enjoy the home comforts you love, without taking too much from the planet.

Taking eco-factors into consideration for your home and interiors decisions is a big part of the Swedish lifestyle concept.

3 Ways to introduce Lagom in your life

  • Clear your bedroom of excess to create a tidy, calm ambience. Not only will you sleep better, but you'll also begin your day feeling more relaxed and fresh.

  • Keep your space clutter-free

  • Brighten up a dark corner to create a cosy atmosphere
