Biography

Beata was born in Sweden and set up her London practice in 2013. The Studio's work is known for being original and playful and Beata has amassed a significant following with her creative interiors and positive approach.

In March 2021, Beata published a best-selling book called "Every Room Should Sing". The book is divided into 10 chapters, with each focusing on an element of Beata's design philosophy and featuring one of the Studio's projects.

The Studio’s current projects include a sympathetic restoration of a Josef Frank villa in Sweden, the reinvigoration of a rural estate in Scotland and the design and brand-creation of a boutique hotel in Paris. For more information on the Studio's interior design service and process please see How We Work.

About Shoppa

“Shoppa” is slang in Swedish for “go shopping”. You do not “shoppa” for a pint of milk at the corner shop. If you “shoppa” it is an outing; an opportunity to browse and find something inspiring.

In our interior design projects we have always made a lot of bespoke things. And if we like something enough we add it to our Shoppa collection. The first item we started selling was our Marbleized Velvet, which was originally made for a sofa in our first project. Our Shoppa has slowly grown ever since.

Our ambition is to curate an environment filled with products we are proud to have designed and that others will find inspiring. A by-appointment Showroom of the Shoppa collection will open in the Autumn at 188. For now, we hope you enjoy the virtual visit!

Step inside Beata's Swedish Home

World of Interiors

When an 18th-century cottage became available on her parents’ farm in southern Sweden, the London-based Beata Heuman jumped at the chance to recover this ‘missing piece’ of her identity. Her childhood was forged in this idyllic rural setting, and it’s proven a wellspring of the imagination ever since.
