A seaside castle from the 18th century gets an elegant new look and purpose

Åkerlundska villa is one of the latest interior projects by stylist and interior designer Lotta Agaton. A castle on the water not too far outside of Stockholm was subdivided into 9 apartments by BTH Bostad. The architecture was designed by Ruxandra Halleröd from Christian Halleröd Design along with Helene Amundsen and soon you’ll be able to read more about it in Residence Magazine.

Christian Halleröd designs Totême’s Stockholm store

Totême is a Swedish brand created back in 2014 by model Elin Kling and her partner Karl Lindman, and she’s partially to blame for our daughter’s name as well. ;) The clothing line features that simple Scandinavian style you’d expect but that doesn’t mean ordinary, the collections are luxurious (expect to pay upwards of $100 for a white tee) while maintaining an air of effortless, chic style.


Newly opened is their Stockholm store/design studio which was designed by the renowned Christian Halleröd. The purpose of the space was to allow visitors a place to see the brand up close, see some of the design process in action along with a self service station with mirrors and rack of clothes to try on in addition to pre-ordering items from upcoming collections.
