Interior designers Emma Persson Lagerberg and Emilia Ljungberg were set the challenge of creating a small-space home with character, on a budget, to fit a family of five. ‘We wanted to create a colourful home that felt playful, new and modern, with smart solutions to meet all their needs.’ Using flexible furniture, rooms within a room, and smart storage, here’s how they did it…
"Storage is crucial, especially when it can double as other things; in the first shared bedroom we used PLATSA to create a reading nook for the youngest child, as well as a “getting ready” space for their mother"
Emma, interior designer
The second bedroom is divided into two equal-sized spaces using colour blocking, with tandem desks. ‘It gives the kids the chance to take ownership of their side,’ says Emilia. ‘The SLÄKT bed has a pull-out bed underneath for sleepovers and drawers for extra bedlinen. A reading light is a must for bedtime stories, and as it only lights up the area needed it means no one else is disturbed.’
