Thrive at home: Emma Persson Lagerberg

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home. Today we met Emma Persson Lagerberg who’s a interior stylist from Malmö, she’s also co-founder of the publishing house Puss Publications and stylist and editor for the book Home. We love her work (www.emmaperssonlagerberg.se) and her smiley filled Instagram (@emmaperssonlagerberg). With Emma involved styling never gets flat or boring. Now let’s her all about her favourite print and sunday dinners in her amazing kitchen!

What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

I don’t feel super attached to any single object in our home, it’s more about the combination of things and the general atmosphere. But maybe the few photo albums I have from when I was a kid or the the weird clay objects my sons made in school. I’m also very fond of some of the art I inherited from my father when he died ten years ago. And I love the Daniel Riera print of Andrea Wilshusen skating. It’s from at fashion reportage in The Gentlewoman, one of few fashion jobs that blew my mind a bit when it was published.

How did it become yours?

It was a gift from my husband for my 40th birthday. I took him a while to track it down and then convince the photographer to sell him the print…

When do you feel your very best at home?

On a friday night in the sofa with the rest of the family scattered around the room. Or at the kitchen table for sunday dinner with my family, my grandmother and my chosen family.

What do you want to recommend?

To take saunas and skinny dips in the ocean as often as possible.

Thrive at home: Linda Hansson

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home. Today we met Linda Hansson who’s a interior stylist and blogger from Stockholm. She’s also one of the owners of the vintage shop Vintage Fabriken (@vintagefabriken) and we adore her style and flower filled Instagram @Volanglinda. Now let’s hear all about her favorit wallpaper and beautiful apartment at Kungsholmen! What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

It’s the wallpaper in our kitchen. The pattern is called Willow bough and the design is William Morris & Co. I love it so much and I think it sets a tone for the whole apartment. It’s so delicate, warm and classic. Just how I want my home to be!

How did it become yours?

I got it as a Christmas gift from my patents a few years ago. I remember that father was quite chockad over it’s price – but I’d say it’s one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever had! Of course I also LOVE my shelfs from Betonggruvan. We have them in our living room and there we keep our bokos and vinyl records.

When do you feel your very best at home?

When it’s summer and the doors to our balconies (yes we have two even though our flat is ”only” 59 square meters). Then we can hear the sounds from the street and the park from one of the balconies. From the other one we see the beautiful green trees and flowers on the back yard.When it’s summer and the doors to our balconies (yes we have two even though our flat is ”only” 59 square meters).

What do you want to recommend?

To buy things for your home that you truly love and think you will love for the next 10 years also. Preferably vintage stuff because it has a great quality and brings a unique feeling to your home.

 

 

Thrive at home: Gustav Broström

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home.

 

Today we met Gustav Broström who’s (among a lot of things) a beauty and still life expert, we love his hashtags #gustavsstilleben and #brostrombeauty. Follow him on @gustavbrostrom and @gustavsloppis for great inspiration! Now let’s hear about his favorit clay pot and slow sundays at home.  

What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

My fave item right now is my huge clay pot/work of art by Kakan Hermansson. Not only because it’s a great piece with great colors but also because it hides all unwanted things like lighters, spare candles and other small stuff. It goes so very well with my 1920’s bust of a young boy and some mid-century pottery. I’m also very much in love with my ever-growing collection of busts, statues and torsos. They work well in a group and gives my 70’s flat a bourgeois touch which I love.

How did it become yours?

When I worked at ELLE Magazine I came in contact with Kakan which is an influencer and has a beauty podcast. She suggested me as a guest in her podcast and the rest is history. I fell in love with her pottery and the naivety it has. She knows color and anti-shapes. I asked if I could buy a piece. The bust next to it was purchased at Myrorna and is the most expensive thing I have ever bought/will buy at Myrorna. I saw it in their “fancy vitrine” and fell in love. He was the spitting image of my maternal grandfather as a young boy. The bust was not signed but had some age and great aesthetic value so I bought it.

When do you feel your very best at home?

Slow Sundays. Listening to Khurangbin, ironing my shirts, rearranging my flea market finds and vacuuming my flat. Perhaps taking an extra nap. I dabble in beauty on my Instagram and I love the slow Sundays when I do still lifes for hours, placing dried fruits and fresh cut flowers in weird and magical combinations next to perfumes and creams.

What do you want to recommend?

I want to recommend Vasastan (and of course Sibirien). These neighborhoods are quiet but lovely. Antique shops, great restaurants and a lot of parks. People find this part of Stockholm boring but it’s subtle hip. Röda Bergen, Atlas and everything in between makes me feel at home.

 

 

Thrive at home: Frida Schüler

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home.

Today we meet Frida Schüler who’s (beside from being one of Betonggruvans first customers) are about to not only move into a new home but also furnish a summer house. Follow her on @fridaschuler! Now let’s hear about her big danish dinner table.

What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

I really love our big dining table. It’s a shaker table by Børge Mogensen and it’s big enough for 10 people. I fell in love with the legs and that it’s made of massive oak wood. We now have it in our summer house since it’s too big for the kitchen in our new apartment.

I bought it from a danish auction site for under 1000 SEK and after I had sanded the tabletop a bit it became perfect for our old apartment.

When do you feel your very best at home?

I love the 30 minutes just before friends come for dinner. The house is (hopefully) clean, I drink a glass of wine, playing music, lighting candles and setting the table.

What do you want to recommend?

Don’t be afraid of making impulsive things in your home. It’s fun and makes it alive. I often have the best inspiration after we’ve put our son to sleep and I guess we’re quite annoying neighbors using the drilling machine late at night.
Also, use a lot of mirrors in your decorating!


Thrive at home: Lina Andersson

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home.


Today we meet Lina Andersson, colorful art director and creative living in Malmö with her family. Lina works in an agency and is also the owner and designer of accessories brand Lite Kalabalik. Let’s hear her thoughts about her home.


What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

Our cabinet in the kitchen. We have all the necessary stuff for the kitchen in it. And it´s perfect for decoration and stilleben on top of. Easy to change after season and mood. Me and my boyfriend bought it for 300 SEK at ”Sopcentralen” (like a permanent flea market) when I was pregnant in ninth month. And we had to paint it like ten times befor we (I…) was satisfied.

When do you feel your very best at home?

A friday night with potato chips, happy mini and take away food.

What do you want to recommend?

Buy old stuff and re-paint! And I think a happy home is the home you are happy in. Not the home you decorate with expensive design.
