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. 🙌 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.

Nature plays a significant role in Scandi style. In addition indoor gardening is more popular than ever; houseplants are a great way to invite nature indoors and soften the minimalist home.

Gather Together: Norlii Box August 2021

As someone who struggles with social anxiety, the thought of entertaining more than a close friend or two can make me a nervous wreck. I’m happiest at home with my little crew, gathering with just the four of us (five when our cat senses food is involved) or enjoying the solitude when I have time alone. I don’t have china for 12 or champagne flutes for a houseful (when would we ever use them?) but I do have many special-but-not-too-precious pieces I love to use every day. And I have Norlii to thank for some of my favourites. Every other month the Copenhagen co. curates a small collection of items from renown nordic brands for their Scandinavian home and lifestyle box, Norlii Box. August’s edition celebrates gathering together (to the extent that we can) and it’s absolutely lovely. Even for the gathering-averse. Come take a closer look.

Simple summer days Scandinavian style: Norlii Box June 2021

I received June’s Norlii Box in exchange for an honest review.

Hello hello! I hope your week’s off to a great start. We’re got blue skies and 32 degrees here in Ottawa and I’ve just come inside after eating a popsicle on the back deck, one of those simple pleasures that signal summer is here. “Simple Days” is the theme of the latest Scandinavian home and lifestyle box from Norlii, this one with a collection of items from renown nordic brands for an easy-breezy summer vibe. The bi-monthly subscription box ships from Copenhagen, Denmark to Canada and the US and now the UK and the EU too. (I think that might be new since April’s review.)
