From the fresh, modern color palette to her signature nature-inspired aesthetic, there is a lot to love about designer Lotta Anderson, creator of popular brand Lotta Jansdotter. Born on Aland, a small group of islands between Sweden and Finland, Anderson now works from her Brooklyn, New York, studio; runs creative workshops on her home islands of Aland as well as in Japan; and has published several books on sewing, craft, and home design.
Anderson’s studio space is a light-filled, creative wonderland brimming with inspiration in the form of colorful fabrics and craft materials, shelves of inspiring books, and cozy spots to curl up with a mug of hot tea. The designer’s aesthetic is influenced heavily by the scandinavian landscape and lifestyle, from the ease of a daily fika (coffee and cake) break, to the organic forms of seed pods and flowers that grace her fabrics, rugs, and ceramic designs. Lotta Jansdotter is all about slowing down, and finding ways of making the little things in our daily lives both practical and beautiful.
Lotta Jansdotter prints mix and match with ease, making it simple and stress-free to bring more color and pattern into the home. If you’re nervous about piling on the pattern, take a cue from Lotta’s own home and studio, and paint a calming, neutral backdrop with white paint and wood floors; then bring in color with rugs, throw pillows, and ceramics.
The Lotta Jansdotter collection for Surya rugs is packed with fun, fresh designs that would look stunning in just about any room in the house, from the living room and dining room to the entry hall, master bedroom, or kids’ playroom. And with their clean, scandinavian design, any of these pieces would work beautifully to elevate light wood and white basics from Ikea — make the look your own with small accents like handmade ceramics, artwork, and fresh green houseplants.
