Just when we’ve gotten our heads around hygge (a Danish word describing cosiness and contentment), along comes another not-easily translatable Scandinavian concept.
Introducing lagom, a Swedish word loosely defined as “enough” and sufficient”. When applied to home decorating, it captures the simple moderation that defines Scandinavian style: not too much, not too little – just right.
This renovated turn of the century Stockholm apartment is a beautiful study of lagom. Styled by Josefin Håag for Fantastic Frank, the pared-back interiors and neutral colour palette showcases the understated architectural elements, with high ceilings, period mouldings and large recessed windows.
The carefully considered living room features a monochrome palette accented with brass accessories and warmed by timber tones. It has a beautifully balanced gallery wall, which works to highlight the stunning lighting, including a Mantis wall lamp and Flos ceiling light.
The few touches of muted colour draws attention to the detail in the design and artwork.
Take a tour through the rest of the apartment.
