What is lagom style in interior design?
Originating in Scandinavia, the lagom style is as much about a way of life as it is about interior design. The philosophy promotes celebrating the everyday, enjoying life while functioning in balance, harmony and an ecological approach to life. Many natural motifs can be seen in spaces decorated in this style. The space is arranged to be comfortable and harmonious. Neither too much nor too little.
Consistency and connection to nature
In a lagom-style flat, you will notice a consistency in the interior design. There is no glamour here and everything gives the impression of an extremely comfortable and convenient living space. The colours are muted and the decorative elements refer to nature. Furniture made of natural materials such as wood, stone, wicker or rattan predominate. We are quicker to notice objects with a soul here than modern technological appliances. The interiors should be filled with light, both natural and artificial, but atmospheric and warm. Lighting plays an important role here.
Living room, kitchen and bedroom in lagom style
In the focal point of the flat, the living room, there must be a comfortable sofa with cushions to accommodate all members of the household. Right next to it is the perfect place for a coffee table, a shelf filled with books or a rattan lamp. Moving on to the kitchen, you will notice a large solid wood table and the fronts of the kitchen cabinets in natural colour, without ornamentation or carvings. A kitchen windowsill filled with fresh flowers and herbs and a basket full of fruit and vegetables on the table are ideal in the lagom style. For the bedroom, choose a simple wooden bed and bedside tables. Minimalist prints and paintings will look great above it.
The lagom philosophy is about balance and equilibrium as seen in interior design. If you are looking for a new style for your future or current home, we recommend a consultation at Vilea Design. Contact us and we will be happy to advise you on a new look for your interiors.
