Interior designer Lotta Agaton has always been a favorite around here. She has had a strong influence on popularizing Scandinavian design around the world, and she has become somewhat of an icon in the Nordics.
Agaton had a successful career as a freelance stylist, with clients such as String, Ikea, Kasthall, Iittala, H&M and Herman Miller, among others, before launching Residence Magazine, a highly sought-after Swedish publication. In 2017, she launched her eponymous interior design studio on Kungsholmsstrand in Stockholm, with lovely views over the water.
Today, we take a peek at this inspiring workspace, where ideas for projects flourish.
True to her signature style, the studio is warm, serene, and elegant, with simplicity and restraint. It is a beautiful, well-curated space, where everything serves a purpose and/or brings joy and beauty.
Agaton, who champions long-lasting quality and sustainability, prefers to use natural materials such as wood, sisal, linen, and stone. Her color palettes are usually neutral and pared-down, with lots of white, grey, beige, and a few black accents for contrasts.
The gorgeous wooden kitchen corner was created with Dinesen Douglas fir boards in collaboration with Picky Living, a Swedish manufacturer of fronts and panels for Ikea cabinets. It’s absolutely stunning!
Enjoy the tour!

I like how Snoopy’s cable is hidden behind the diagonal metal beams in some of the shots! I dislike how cables are either unplugged or shopped out in many of the shots (Snoopy, iMac, that narrow floor lamp, possibly the espresso machine). The studio looks great – why fake these details?
It is true that sometimes we see the wires, sometimes we don’t… I think you have an interesting point – It’s like advocating for unretouched beauty/fashion pictures to promote a more realistic representation. After all. wires are part of our daily lives, as unsightly as they are… You’re on to something ;)
