What’s brilliant about interior design for you home in the modern world is that you can embrace almost any kind of design that suits you. Trends come and go and you can pick and choose according your taste and interests.
Recently a couple of big lifestyle movements have been adopted, Lagom, from the Swedish word that means just the right amount, not too much not too little, but is essentially about creating a better happier and more balanced everyday life. The other Scandi trend that has been around for a while is hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”). At its most simple, hygge can be equated to cosiness, but there is much more to it than that. It isn't just about creating a home where you feel close and comfortable; it's also about ensuring more areas of your life make you feel this way so making a home that works for your family to come together in is key. Many Danes think that it's more important to focus on the simple side of life, rather than the complex, so they design interiors that reflect that belief.
Holding both these design concepts in mind can really help you relax and choose what are right for you and your family. One way to really make a difference in your living rooms is to change the walls and a simple quick fix can involve wallpaper. Nowadays you can pretty much find a design in every colour, style and pattern to suit your taste. The fantastic thing is, “that there isn't one over-riding trend – people are embracing their own tastes and individuality,' says Fi Douglas, creative director and founder at Bluebellgray. 'They're decorating more fearlessly and including items they truly love in their schemes – things that make their heart and home happy”.
