2. #scandinavianstyle

Scandinavian style is arguably the defining trend of the 21st Century. Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden share at their heart a culture of collectivism; a people-centric mindset that extends to their interior style. Combining beautifully handcrafted elements with ergonomic and functional design, interiors are styled with people in mind. When it comes to the art, the same principles of craftsmanship and simplicity apply.

Explore the Lagom Edit where we’ve hand-picked prints that capture the Scandinavian philosophy of balance. Consider the beautiful simplicity of Picasso and Matisse’s line art or the organic shapes and harmonious colour palettes of designs by Giggenbach and Inaluxe.

The gallery wall has revolutionised the way we style art in the home. Prints that you might not initially place together can take on a whole new story when you mix colours, artistic eras and sizes into an impressive curation of your favourite designs. This hashtag has become synonymous with the queen of the gallery wall, Lisa Dawson who King & McGaw worked with to curate an Eclectic Home Collection to inspire your walls.

For ideas on how to arrange and hang your prints, read our interview with interior design blogger, @artynads on how to make a dark luxe gallery wall:

  1. Lay all the artworks on the floor so you can easily shift things around
  2. Measure the wall space and lay your tape measure with your prints as a guide
  3. When you’re happy with a ‘shape’, take a photo from above to use as your template
  4. Command strips make it really easy to hang art and create the perfect layout
