Now & Then: Home of Stylist Emma Persson Lagerberg

September 11, 2012

These photos made me happy today because I love seeing how stylists decorate their homes and also how they change things up as their needs change and tastes evolve.

Now & Then: Home of Stylist Emma Persson Lagerberg

I found this delightful home on Irene’s beautiful blog and it belongs to interior stylist Emma Persson Lagerberg that was photographed by Petra Bindel and instantly remembered it but noticed immediately that a lot has changed since I last saw it. But first, isn’t this minty green haven so serene and lovely?

What a modern, soft application of pastels applied in a very grown up way – and edited so perfectly. You can see the entire apartment here but a glimpse below. It’s glorious beyond words. At the bottom of this post, you can see the way this space looked before Emma redecorated. It was equally gorgeous then, too.

It looks like Emma’s former dining room is now a kitchen/dining room combo and the lilac accents in the apartment have been replaced with more mint.

I spot the disco ball in the window of the living room now vs. in the center of the space, too. Glad they kept the disco ball, my favorite feature! What an incredible transformation. I spot a new sofa too. It’s looking a bit more elegant, don’t you think?

What do you think?

    Thank you Holly. Beautiful photos and great to see the comparison to before. Fantastic example of how a professional goes from ‘already great to greater’.
    I especially loved the little glass shelf in the window.

    I love the then and now photos – the theory of evolution made plain!

    Beautiful places & evolution!

    Odd to put a kitchen cabinet right over your hob though, where it will be damaged from the steam created when cooking. Would have looked better moved to the right as well?

    I love the white – I love how clean it makes everything look!! Also – I’ve been searching for a narrow shelf like that for my kitchen, maybe I’ll find one that looks that awesome tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!!

    I am currently looking for inspiration for my upcoming living room makeover and have certainly found it hear. Absolutely love those wooden white-washed floors, stunning!

  • Reply Anu September 12, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Really enjoyed this post – I’m a big fan of before and afters and this is an excellent redecorating story! Of course not to mention the both versions of apartment which are a true eye candy :)

  • Reply Laura Gaskill September 12, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Love, love, love! I too remember seeing this home, and I’m honestly not sure which incarnation I love more…it’s all so very good. :) The kitchen is simply gorgeous (love the mint green) and the living room looks so comfy and cushy. Nice! xo Laura

    I enjoyed the way you showed us the before and afters.
    I liked both. :)

    Love this kitchen. My favourite color for kitchens is white, but I think it has changed in to minty green :-)

  • Reply Anna-Rosa September 14, 2012 at 11:44 am

    I can’t pick one of them.. I love both.

    I’ll be renovating again so thank you for the inspirations.

  • Reply Rebecca October 3, 2012 at 5:44 am

    Yes – I think it looks a bit more refined now but did love the lavender/purple accents in the previous design. Both are lovely though!

  • Reply Kate January 31, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Does anyone know the brand/model of the gray couch? Any leads would be much appreciated. I LOVE it!

  • Reply cristina April 15, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Somebody could tell me which is exactly the kitchen colour? I really love it!
