The home of decorator Anna Lilja

Do you find it hard to mix and match pieces from different styles and eras? Take a cue from interior designer and art director Anna Lilja! This is her Stockholm apartment with an awesome mix of 50’s, 70’s and modern furniture in an old house with soaring ceilings and huge windows letting lots of light in.


The secret seems to be colour matching and confidence…

Anna also has a book coming out soon called HandMade (I want!). Here is a small sneak peak:

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. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].

    Can you help me identify the chairs around the dining table? They are absolutely beautiful. Thanks

  • Oh, the chairs are the classic Wire Side Chair by Harry Bertoia.

  • What appeal to me more are those little animals you scatter around the home.

    Consider making over into a <i>nature-</i> theme. For a start, you can display huge photographic prints of <a href="">wild animals</a>. They 'add life' to your space.

  • Love all of it!!! xx

    can you tell me where the table is from? with the yellow chairs

  • Virginia, sorry but I have no idea where that table is from, maybe you could email Anna Lilja? The address should be on her homepage.
