A 1940s Pink Villa Becomes New Home for Luca Nichetto’s Studio

Over the course of a year, designer Luca Nichetto renovated a 1940s pink villa to become his new studio in Stockholm, Sweden. No signs are on display – it looks like a regular house to the average passerby – but the locals now know of it as the Pink Villa. While its pink exterior definitely piques curiosity, it’s the interior that really draws you in.

The renovation and refurbishment of the home began in 2021, along with the interior design, which was done in house. From the sofas to the chairs to the lighting to the plant holders, most of the furnishings throughout were designed by Luca himself.

On weekdays, the Pink Villa is used as Nichetto Studio’s offices and then on weekends the family uses it as a vacation home in the country. An old garage has transformed into a guest room, named the Chalet, with its own living room, bedroom, and bathroom complete with a Swedish sauna.

The new studio is just a seven minute walk to the water and a green area, Branterna, is just a minute away, making it a peaceful place to work or visit.
