Kvarngården: country house the Lotta Agaton way

I saw some small pictures of this house in Southern Sweden yesterday on Lotta Agaton’s blog, and thought it looked fantastic, but unfortunately the pics were too small to show here, and I was too tired to think of looking in Lotta’s portfolio to see if they were to find there in a bigger size. Today my brain is working properly again, and the pictures were indeed uploaded to Agent Bauer’s site, so I’m very happy to be able to give you this overdose of inspiration now!
I don’t know how much of the interiors that are Lotta’s work, they do look very much like her style and I recognize quite a few items from her shop. Or perhaps the owner of the house just shares her taste. Whichever the case, this is an amazing home dripping with inspiration in every corner. The balance between classic Swedish country style, design classics and a few more edgy accessories makes for a very relaxed and comfortable space with a modern feel.
My eyes were caught by the black wall with the white paint drips coming down from the ceiling, and I think this will be recreated in the kids room in my own home. I want to make a blackboard wall above a long work table in there, but felt that blackboard paint was kind of ”done”, we’ve seen it everywhere in the last few years. With the addition of the white paint though, this feels fresh and cool.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
