Sarah McMillan, the owner and director of Lagom, is a former midwife and calm birth instructor who took a leap of faith in 2018 and started her entrepreneurial journey in the interior styling space.
Sarah’s long term love of interiors, keen eye for detail, and her natural ability to understand how to bring a space to life have contributed to the development of long-term and trusting relationships with both her clients and her suppliers.
“When I was a midwife, I was deeply aware of how much the physical environment impacted the woman in labour. I made it a part of my routine to create a calm and peaceful environment- from the lighting, to the scents, the temperature of the room as well as using soft furnishings to make the space feel safe and comfortable for the labouring mother.
I think that this experience has helped me so much in understanding just how important it is that we feel relaxed and joyful in our physical spaces, as this both reflects and feeds back to our internal world. I feel that every person deserves to have a home that is a sanctuary, and have the opportunity to express themselves through the way it is styled.
I am so passionate about helping my clients to create a space that they never want to leave, and I feel so lucky to have the privilege to do so.”
Lagom By Sarah McMillan was born of a true love of interior design, and a strong desire to bring a sense of individuality and warmth to every space we encounter. We believe that your physical environment is a reflection of your inner world, and that everyone deserves to feel deeply connected to the space they live or work in. Through careful curation of the world’s most exquisite and unique pieces of art, furniture and homewares, the team at Lagom expertly create beautiful spaces that reflect each client’s individual style.
At Lagom, we don’t subscribe to the popular belief that everything in your space must be uniform. We work closely with each client to ensure that their personality is reflected in each and every room. We believe that when a client walks in the door or their home or office, they should immediately feel a sense of belonging, calm and joy.
We prioritise learning about you, how you exist in your space, what makes you happy, and what instills a sense of calm in you. This unique, human-centred approach to a style brief is what sets us apart from our competitors.
