If you haven't heard of LAGOM LIVING until now, you can thank us later for the introduction. Literally known as “just the right amount” and “creating just the right balance of things” in Scandinavian, lagom embodies the lifestyle of living life in MODERATION. Apart from encouraging a sustainable and conscious way of living, incorporating this lifestyle at home requires balance and muted tones. Achieve lagom living at home with these cool home décor and furniture ideas.
Choose sustainable brands
Select products from brands that make the effort to give back to the environment or community through fair trade and eco-conscious methods. This includes upcycled and multi-purpose furniture and home décor.

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.
