Designer Lotta Jansdotter has published eight books in five languages. She is about to debut her ninth later this month. Open Studios will captivate its readers with glimpses inside artist and designer studios around the globe. Can’t wait to be creatively inspired. Most of Lotta’s other tomes contain patterns for crafting a simple and sweet life at home. What I especially love is that all of her pieces are purposeful and pretty to look at. Who couldn’t use more of both in their daily round? Lotta also produces a line of paper products and candles. All are available through her website: jansdotter.com.
