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 ( 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.
