It's hit the shelves!

Earlier this year I enjoyed many, many fikas with Swedish friends and family. It wasn't just because I was feeling particularly sociable (although it was lots of fun - and I do enjoy a cinnamon bun admittedly!) - I was on an important mission. I was busy researching the concept of lagom (a Swedish term loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much - just right') and how my Swedish friends feel incorporating it into various parts of their lives helps them to achieve greater balance and happiness. They were extremely generous - sharing a wealth of knowledge, tips, ideas and bite-sized actions -  which have been combined with my own experience of living in this wonderful country for over thirteen years to write my new book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life. And today it hits the shelves in the UK! Yay! I'm super excited to share a sneak peek inside....

The illustrations are by talented Swede Petra Börner - her work is so lovely and I was so lucky to collaborate with her.

I hope you like the look of my book! If you'd like a copy it's available online here or you can pick up a copy at your local book shop or library (if it's not in stock I'm sure they'd be happy to order it in for you!).

Excitingly, a US and Canadian version of the book will launch on 3rd October - (watch this space!) or if your English isn't quite up to it -  it'll also be available in German, French, Portuguese and Czech (with a possibility of more to be added to the mix too!). Eeeeeeee!

If you've got any questions or would like to know more please just give me a shout in the comment section below and I'll do my best to answer!

A huge thanks to everyone who was involved in the making of this book - especially the fabulous team at HarperCollins!

Trevlig kväll!
 
PS Those of you following on Instagram stories will know I'm on my way to London. YAAAAY!

  6. Congratulations, Niki!!!!! I want your book! I am particularly interested in the term LAGOM, after reading its meaning (I knew it from you). A few months ago we encharged a ring with a quote in it for me and my best friend Fanny, to celebrate our 30 years of friendship (since the school time), and we thought a lot about what to write in it, a message representing our way of life (or our aspiration!!!!). Something to inspire us everyday. We choose the phrase "Life is about balance", because we really think that way (and at the same time, it is very hard to live in a balanced way). Now I learn that the word LAGOM means that.... I would have love to know it before!
    The best for you in London!!!

    I just got your book "Scandinavian Home"...authentic and brilliant! I appreciate how it is categorised by type of home ie mine is urban. I'm spreading the word, including libraries which have just received theirs-just in time to fill numerous holds!...An up-to-date version of Scandinavian style is long overdue. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise.
    P.s. Lagom is scheduled to arrive anytime!
