  • About the interior design firm
    Stylt was founded in 1991 by Erik Nissen Johansen, a Norwegian visionary and artist with a passion for cxreative concepts and engaging experiences. More than 30 years later, Stylt’s portfolio includes a wide range of award-winning projects within the international hospitality industry. Through storytelling, powerful and inspiring narratives are created, guiding design and architecture - stories that bring brands to life, generating a sense of place, great guest experiences and better business.

After running a West Indies hotel for 30+ years, the owner’s moved back to Swedish seaside town Varberg. Here, they opened Blankas, a restaurant reflecting their Caribbean love. Bold in colors and patterns, the interiors merge tropical vibes and Scandinavian coolness. Lushness and floral patterns meet striking pink accents, natural and burnt wood. Blankas was named after Blanche de Namur, the French-born 14th-century queen of Sweden and Norway who resided at the fortress near the restaurant's location. Her renowned goodness and beauty make her a fitting symbol for this welcoming place.
