Isabelle Halling {swedish decorator}

October 31, 2007

When flipping through my favorite design magazines, I love to hunt for the stylist/decorator’s names, or for the photographer, so I can google these creative talents in hopes of finding their portfolio online. If you don’t already do this, you may want to get into the habit because it’s often a search that leads you to some very satisfying results.

This is exactly how I came across Swedish decorator Isabelle Halling, via Sk?na Hem magazine. Her portfolio is lovely, here’s a glimpse. I love how this kitchen/living/dining room space is styled, small yet very well coordinated with lots of sweet touches. I love the shelf of well arranged pastel ceramics and the big black lamp, I’m seeing lots of those over here in homes – they seem to be pretty common and old-fashioned – my oma had a red one!

It seems to be a staple in Swedish design, I see it in so many Scandinavian books and magazines. Any clue?

    Does anyone know where the kitchen table and overhead green lamp are from?

    The green lamp is “Bluff” from Habitat, although they discontinued that sage colour this year, but it does now come in a yummy lime green…

    I would guess that the table is vintage. An Ebay search for Danish/Swedish/Scandinavian teak dining tables might come up with something similar.

    The lamp is called “kjesarens nya lampa” or The emperors new lamp.
    Produced and sold by design dessert.

    Now i know where to get the wall light, Habitat. I have been looking for a wall light for my brother for Xmas He loves Habitat. He is an architect for Norman Foster in London UK. I asked him what he wanted for Xmas, he said a wall light in a green colour & to save space for is home office. Also noticed the radio which he bought my mother for last Xmas and the Kitchenaid food mixer that we sell on our Oline kitchen store.
