Guess who just found yet another super cool stylist? Yep. She’s from Stockholm nonetheless (what’s in their water? Seriously!). Cue: Tina Hellberg, a talented professional that designs, builds, and styles her own sets. I mean, as if styling props alone is not enough, she does it all!
I am totally going gaga over her portfolio; Tina Hellberg has a crazy body of work that is everything but boring or predictable; be it seasonal decor, colourful furniture or conceptual vignettes, she can do it all. Jealous? A bit..or a lot!! What I love the most about her work is all the nature she incorporates into almost every scene; it totally adds a layer of liveliness to the look. I think we can definitely take this concept and bring it to our own spaces to make them more cheerful.
In my opinion plants are still underrated, I know there’s been a rise in Pinterest of plants in interiors, but in reality people don’t seem to get the most of out them. In the examples above and below you can see that a little bit of greenery goes a long way. Oh, and if you’re a plant killer like myself, it’s all about practice! This month I managed to only kill one plant haha, all others are still alive and well and actually growing! Woop.
Another key takeaway from Tina’s style is that she mostly uses neutral planters or vases, which makes them fit in the room without competing with other patterns or textures. A good rule of thumb is to either use a neutral (something in an earthy tone) or a complementary colour so that it doesn’t clash with the rest of your decor, though a subtle pattern can definitely add a little somethin’ somethin’. Last year we ceramics making a huge comeback, and I think that trend will continue to invade our Pinterest feed. Ceramics are also a great option for planters as the clay itself can be speckled which adds a nice layer of texture while still being neutral.
I could keep talking about all these rooms for days, but I gotta get back to watch the a few reruns of the X-Files because the new season is about to come out and I’m a nerd like that.
