On My Mind

Lagom

Last December I posted on hygge, Danish for coziness, which we happily practiced a lot last winter. Now, the Swedes are getting in on the act with a book on lagom, the art of living a lifestyle of moderation.

Admittedly, I’m a bit obsessed with Scandinavia and it’s ways these days. There are currently a number of Scandinavian fashion designers and art directors who are making a huge impact on the industry right now—championing a spare design sensibility that I adore.
