Lagom, a Swedish term meaning "just the right amount, not too much or too little," is testimony to the Scandinavian desire to keep things simple, moderate, and effortless. We've rounded up 10 of our favorite Scandinavian kitchens that embody this ideal. Above: The eat-in kitchen of Scandinavian stylist and writer Emma Persson Lagerberg features mint green cabinets, a row of porcelain wall socket lights, and a marble countertop that seamlessly blends into a backsplash. (For ideas on re-creating this, see Steal This Look: A Mint Green Kitchen from a Scandinavian Stylist .) Above: This Stockholm apartment designed by Fantastic Frank features an eat-in-kitchen with a mix of gray (lower) and white (upper) cabinets. For more on two-toned cabinets, see A Kitchen for the People Courtesy of Prince Charles . Fantastic Frank seems to have its hands in everything (see an Artful Hotel in Gotland, Sweden ).
