Lagom

Lagom, means simply: ‘not too little, not too much. Just right.’ & it is the new Scandi trend taking 2017 by storm.

The word refers to creating balance within your life, not having too much of anything in particular but instead having the perfect amount; a balanced way of living, not something to squeeze into your day, but a lifestyle choice.

It’s common to make resolutions at the beginning of each year, whether that be to save money, be less stressed with work or put more time aside for things we enjoy; our passions and hobbies. This thinking is the foundations of ‘lagom’.

In general, lagom can be found when an individual takes small steps towards reducing their environmental impact, an example of this would be recycling or reducing energy consumption or keeping track of your finances.

We’ve put together a collection of Scandi inspired interiors which we think portray lagom as much as possible when it comes to home décor, using fabrics, textures and styling that fit the trend.

Don’t forget to check out all of our ranges on our website where you can view our collection brochures, and be sure to follow us on each of the platforms below for more inspiring ideas and tips

Apartment Living

Make the most of your space

Apartment living is all about making the most of the space you have, whether that be with an open plan living space or an interior design scheme using lighter colours to give off the impression of a bigger room.

Vinyl flooring can be used to create a seamless design scheme between rooms, again creating the illusion of a larger space.

Although all of our floors are suited for city living, our LVS ranges (Secura & Designatex) come with an acoustic backing creating a 19dB & 17dB impact sound reduction respectively.

Working from the comfort of your own home

Remote working has become increasingly popular in recent years with more and more of us working from where we feel most comfortable, home. It comes as no surprise that various studies suggest we are actually more productive working alongside home comforts rather than a traditional office environment.

When planning your home office, think about how you would create a productive space that inspires you to work.  We suggest carefully choosing a colour scheme and hand-selected accessories that will promote positivity without distracting you from tasks at hand.

Take a look at some of our inspirational home office room-sets, put together with productivity in mind:

PAH floor care kit

Start from the ground up, this Autumn

As the days start to get shorter and the nights are drawing in, it’s hard to fight the urge to curl up on the sofa in a warm and cosy home.  Creating a snug and inviting interior literally starts from the floor up, through introducing natural wood tones that create a great base for your room’s furnishings.

Introducing autumnal tones

Bring all the gorgeous autumnal golden tones from the great outdoors indoors, by choosing a timber effect floor that combines rich brown and red hues for an authentic finish that complements a variety of wall paint colours and furniture styles.

CF16_2252 Manor House Main_Render
Deep brown wood tones in the floor and furniture, combined with varying shades of deep green and antique gold accessories can make larger rooms cosier, but to prevent the room looking too dark you can add paler tones that help reflect light around the room.  For a more classic look, pair antique furniture with a traditional parquet floor for a timeless appearance.
CF16_2220 back to nature
Using lighter botanical colours will create a fresher look and feel in your living space, and make your house bang on trend for 2017.  Add a cosy feel with candles and some warm metallic and terracotta accessories, and a rustic timber effect floor with rich copper tones.
CF Living 1 Cool quirky main V1_Golden Koa 4403
Lighting can play a large part in creating the right atmosphere in a living space.  Introduce lower level lighting with floor and table lamps to artificially lower the ceiling and create a more intimate space.  When used in combination with a paler wood effect floor, any light reflected downwards will bounce back into the room unlike with darker wood floors or carpets.

 

4531_Cottage Yorkstone 4531_Cream 0032 Feature strip size 5mm x 1000mm
If your wall and furniture colours are more neutral, you can still add warmth to a room with your choice of floor covering.  Stone effect floor tiles come in a variety of shades, and this classic Cottage Yorkstone pattern combines a number of warm tones that can be further emphasised with darker brown, red and green accessories.  Add an assortment of textures such as wool blankets, chalk paint furniture and polished brass cookware to add depth and interest.

 

2159_Coastal Oak_Living
The same can be said for this Coastal Oak wood effect vinyl sheet flooring, that gives the appearance of weather-worn planks that have been sun bleached over the years.  Simply by adding seasonal accessories in dark wood, low-level candlelight and autumnal coloured flowers, you can create a cosy living room that can be easily changed depending on the time of year.  And don’t forget the blanket for wrapping up warm!
