Create a balanced look

Lagom may tend towards an understated style but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with hints of colour, texture and print. Lagom is not about restricting your space to a particular theme. So go ahead and add your creative touch to the room. Just avoid creating visual clutter by having too much of anything.

Opt for muted tones

As lagom is all about being calm and collected, go for muted tones of blues, yellows, greys, pinks or greens. You need not stick to a colour palette – as long as the colours do not affect the quietude of the space, experimenting and choosing what feels right for the room is highly encouraged.
