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.

Norlii Box October 2021: Nordic Bed and Breakfast

Happy Saturday, everybody! I hope you’ll get the chance to enjoy at least one slow morning this weekend lingering over breakfast and coffee. Tomorrow we’ll be getting up early to put the turkey in the oven and start on the vegetables so that’s out but Monday I’m going to relax, Scandi style. “Nordic Bed & Breakfast” is the theme of October’s Scandinavian home and lifestyle box, Norlii Box, and it’s a reminder that simple rituals like taking the time to enjoy a soft-boiled egg and a delectable jam can enrich your life by multitudes and turn even the greyest days bright.

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.
