make it yours: elisabeth dunker


Elisabeth Dunker is a multi-talented Swedish stylist/photographer. She is the founder of Lula and also runs Studio Violet along with Camilla Engman. It’s no surprise that Elisabeth’s home is immaculately styled; it’s filled with gorgeous color schemes, textures and designs. When decorating, Elisabeth loves a warm yellow in combination with gray (love this!) and keeps in mind “real materials” like wood, wool and stone. Her house is truly an inspiration! Check out the original sneak peek here. — Lauren

    soft colors, not a lot of things, this is lovely and feels relaxing

  2. This is definitely one of my favorites! I love that feather plate too.

  3. I love the color in Elizabeth’s place. It is very soft but the combination of color and texture is subtle but somehow bold. My favorite bit would be the pillows against the grey couch. In addition to the lovely pieces sourced here, I once found really amazing vintage pillows from August Morgan.

    I like those colors

  7. Craig says:

    I’m not great at mis-arranging photo frames on walls. The first picture is an example of how to do it correctly!

  8. Virginia says:

    I love both these rooms and especially love Palette 1. A wonderful mix of warm and cool

  9. Ooo… I’m totally into the couch up top and the hanging lamp on bottom. And the legs on that table are thick & sexy! lol

  10. Kelly says:

    I’ve had my eye on the Karlstad sectional (not the same, but very similar to the one pictured above) for quite some time! One of these days we’ll get it!

    I would like the price of the eyes print
