Lotta Agaton is a fantastic interior stylist from Sweden. She can turn any interior into an interesting, beautiful and sophisticated space. She has “a minimalist style with a personal twist”. I am a big fan of her work, and she is often featured on Nordic Design.
She kindly agreed to answer a few questions about how she intends to celebrate the Holidays, and what she truly wishes for this Christmas.
Q: How do you usually celebrate the holiday season?
A: I always spend Christmas with my family, normally at my place.
Q: How do you like to decorate your home at Christmas?
A: I love to bring in lots of branches of pine and fir, and place them everywhere in different vases… And with a big Christmas tree.
Q: What does the perfect Christmas tree looks like?
A: Mine is full of small yarn Santas that my father has made for me. When I was a kid, we used to have about five of them that my grandmother made herself, and I loved them so much! I always said “when I grow up, I am going to have a Christmas tree full of these.” So for the first Christmas at my own apartment, my father made 50 Santas for me and they have been decorating my Christmas tree ever since. I also like to add candles and ornaments my kids made.
Q: What is your favorite Christmas memory and/or tradition?
A: I love Christmas mornings when we are all having breakfast on the sofa, under a blanket and in our pajamas, starting to open presents because we can’t wait!
Q: Which song(s) is guaranteed to be on the playlist during the Holidays?
A: The old classic American ones like Frank Sinatra.
