Two funny words have crept into our design language since 2016: Hygge and Lagom. Today, we'll talk about both concepts and how to add them to your own home.
Hygge (pronounced “HOO-ga”) is the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Coziness. Hygge is the art form of creating intimacy in any given moment. That feeling of settling in on a snowy day with warm blankets and family? That's hygge.
So how do you create hygge at home? Just surround yourself with cozy blankets, familiar items and crisp clean colors - white, light shades of blues and greens, or soft and neutral greys work best. A dark grey accent wall can also add some warmth to a hygge home. Consider the following colors: Kendall Charcoal BM; Fleur de Sel SW; or Eider White SW
As most of the US is covered in snow right now, I think we could all use a little hygge! What room would you cozy up with hygge style?
While hygge really took off in 2016, many designers are transitioning to 2017 with a new idea in mind: lagom.
Lagom is the Swedish concept of "enough, sufficient, adequate, just right." I believe it is a great idea to embrace in design and in our homes. Let's all just keep what we need, what is enough. Embrace a 'less is more' mindset and be thankful for what we have.
Paint colors for lagom are similar to hygge - white, light blues and greens and clean warm grays. Some paint colors to consider: Alabaster SW and Classic Gray BM. Adding a graphic wallpaper is another simple was to add just enough to your space.
