Spring has sprung Scandinavian-style with April’s Norlii Box

Spring has been slow to arrive here in Ottawa (we had snow just last night!) but according to the forecast it’s going to turn around this week with a mix of sunshine and rain to help all the good things grow. πŸ™Œ In the meantime Scandinavian home and lifestyle box Norlii Box has inspired me to get our indoor garden going with April’s lovely Spring theme. Every other month the subscription delivers a thoughtfully curated selection of Scandinavian home decor and accessories designed to help you create a hygge home trademarked by simple clean lines, muted colours and soft natural textures.

It’s also the theme of February’s edition. Every other month the subscription delivers a thoughtfully curated selection of Scandinavian home decor and accessories designed to help you create a hygge home trademarked by simple clean lines, muted colours and soft natural textures.
