The London Home of Swedish Interior Designer Lotta Cole

Lotta Cole is a Swedish interior designer who has been living and working in London since 1997. Her design style mixes old and new, functional Scandinavian design, wit, and a surprising dose of colour. The result is bold contemporary designs that make an impact, and her own home is a perfect example of her flair.

I don’t normally start with the bathroom but I think it’s my favourite room. Oh, for those doors in my own house. There’s a definite boho vibe going on in here with gorgeous patterned tiles, a Moroccan pendant light and a fabulous carved cupboard. It manages to mix these elements with period details and modern functionally. I love a room where there’s so much to look at.

The accent colours in the bathroom are picked up on the curtains in the bedroom beautifully creating a fresh and restful retreat. The panelling behind the bed is inspired, creating not just interest on that wall but also a handy shelf on which to prop artwork.

The bold colour combinations are continued in the bright and airy kitchen extension. Again, tempered with lots of Scandiavian white. I couldn’t help smiling at the coordinating clogs by the back door.

And Lotta’s wit is demonstrated by the spoon handles on the cupboard doors.

The family room has another playful touch in the bright pink tunnel at the bottom of the shelves that leads to the children’s play area. What a great place for small children to clamber through or sit quietly listening to adult conversation.

The dining room again uses panelling to create interest to the wall. I like the herring bone pattern. much more interesting than vertical planks.

 By contrast, the sitting room is dark and moody but still with shots of hot pink, yellow and teal which brings together all of the colours used in the other rooms.

    To see this home on video, look for The House that £100k Built, Series 2, Episode 2. Lotta’s house is on one of the inspiration tours. I too love it which led to me finding this post.

    I am speechless. I hope I can have the same interior design for my home. But I can only afford a cheaper one. I’m sure this cost a fortune. Hopefully, I can be creative and do some diy to make my place something like this too. Thanks for the ideas you have shared here.
