Good morning friends. Hope you are doing well and for those of you getting hit by snowstorms, keep warm and read blogs! So let’s get started with some inspiration for you today. I really like the interiors shot by Swedish photographer Sara Svenningrud. After living in LA and London, she’s now back in Sweden working with clients for magazine and catalog work along with ad campaigns. She’s also produced fashion shows! Her photos are always quite obvious to me when I see them in Scandinavian and even German interiors mags – I think it’s because she’s photographed a lot of homes like Marie Olsson Nylander (whom has also worked with her as an interiors stylist) and I’m quite a fan of Maire’s work combined with Sara’s magical eye.
Marie’s signature style includes loads of soft and creamy hues, yummy texture, fresh greenery and a flea market meets global industrial vibe and Sara’s photos are all about achieving perfect composition, drawing you in and allowing for a lot of natural creamy light to illuminate everything very evenly. Here is a glimpse from her portfolio below. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
I have to comment on this image above because where I live, it’s very easy to find old school charts with these beige linen-like backs. You can even source them on eBay. I’ve flipped over one of mine before and used it over my desk as a mood board, but I also love using it as a backdrop for showing some of your favorite artwork with simple black tape too. It’s so imaginative and a nice change from showing art on walls with tape.
The chandelier is so very delicate and pretty and I love the lightbulb-esque table lamp and the contrast between the gold table and the modern elements around it. Also, every home needs a big round frameless mirror, right?
Love this loo! What a sweet little bathroom and that graphic, bold floor set amidst all of that blackness, it’s just the best. The wire basket filled with toilet paper is a good one, I’ve been seeing this for years but like it best in a black/white bathroom like this one. It works.
Gosh that leather sofa on the right is so interesting, almost seems to transform into a bed, am I right? Who makes that thing, is it a classic piece or? I’m stumped for the first time, I usually identify every piece in a room but this sofa – nope!
How stunning, right? Hope you are doing well today.
