I love the effortless style of Swedish living. It does not matter that this beautiful space is a simple studio apartment in the city, thoughtful living is a must -- special candle holders, a spot for plants & great lighting is essential.

Here's a sneak peek at Ferm Living's new SS20 collection for Spring & Summer. It has such an easy living vibe I don't even know what to do but I'm feeling it. The relaxed, vacation mode it communicates draws you in and I pretty much just want to sunbathe & read a book, you know?
The neutral palette (with a new beige color called cashmere) and very homemade-ish elements can't be missed which is what I truly love about Ferm Living.

JANUARY’S HYGGE MOOD —
Embrace the Hygge (hue-guh) mood — A Danish word for mind or embrace translated in our lives today is a hug of light, natural beauty, a warm drink and something (or someone) cozy to curl up with.
I had an aunt growing up that would wrap the most beautiful Christmas gifts. Today we might think of this type of wrapping as Scandinavian inspired or with a natural minimalist vibe but she didn’t bother with anything like that, she simply had a knack for wrapping her gifts the way she decorated her home — earth tones, lots of nature, cozy, not overdone.
I’ve gathered a few inspirations that would be right of my aunt’s alley.
Lots of natural toned papers — kraft paper new or repurposed, white butcher style paper or newspaper even, as well as pieces of fabric and simple kraft paper boxes.
A good selection of adornments — linen or cotton twine, silk or satin ribbons (new, saved or foraged from the depths of the craft closet), and a color or two of Japanese washi tape.
A gathering of natural elements — branches, twigs & winter berries clipped from the yard or a pine cone even add a natural element that is undeniably thoughtful.
Add in a gift tag & a possibly a trinket or two (tiny bells are always lovely) and you’re set.
