Inkabilly Palm Leaf Print Placemats - as seen in Grazia

We are super excited here at Inkabilly as this week our Palm Leaf Print Placemats are being featured in Grazia Magazine! They are being featured in an article on how to achieve the cool new Swedish vibe of 'lagom' in your home.

'Lagom' means "just the right amount" and according to Grazia, is all about balanced living. Living ethically and sustainably without depriving yourself of quality of life. A balance.

In terms of design, it's not about spending lots of money or making big changes, but making small improvements which will make a big difference.

According to The Telegraph, "Lagom underpins all that we've come to admire in Scandinavians: a lack of fussiness and pretentiousness, plenty of contentment and quiet confidence, functional architecture and pared-back design, modesty and wholesomeness, unfussy cuisine and an emphasis on the communal over the individual".

In the Grazia feature, the focus is on a Stockholm apartment and our placemats have been chosen, along with a myriad of other gorgeous items, to illustrate how you can achieve this balanced feel in the design of your home.

We are so chuffed to be considered part of this genre as we try to live, and run our business, with similar ethics.

There is talk in the press that 'lagom' could be the new 'hygge' ... who knows of this will pan out, but small homewares such as tableware, cushions, and art prints are all easy ways to ring the changes in your home without a major overhaul of your decor.
