Summer feelings by Stellan Herner

While we are still waiting for summer to make an appearance between the heavy rain and cold winds, I found some inspiring summer photos, mostly old favorites, by Swedish photographer Stellan Herner.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].


  • I love the third picture! Love everything about it!


  • I styled it:-) and the fourth.

  • Satt och bläddrade i hans portfolio häromdagen, det finns gott om vackra foton i den 🙂

    I always love your pics. So beautiful and inspiring.

  • I like the first one. It communicates to me good sensations and feelings : peace, calm & freedom.

  • I like the 3rd pic. It is not a typical Summer mood picture yet everything reinds me of a Summer morning in a barn with a creative working space, with a dog lying on the right side and probably a mug of coffee on the working table…

  • I love these pictures, thanks so much for sharing. The one of the oceans makes me long for summer. The second pic is just divine too, with the glass vessels on the cupboard, wire basket and ladder. I dream of an all white bedroom like in the third pic…sigh!!! Happy day, from South Africa!! 🙂

  • Lovely photos, so calm.

  • Love it! The first is very inspiring.

    That top photo is AMAZING! I love the way the pier looks like it could be floating.

    I have a collection of photos taken in the Bahamas in my etsy shop that are very summery as well –

  • Å, tänk att några få bilder kan få en så stark känsla av sommaren.

  • The first picture was wonderful, just love it!

  • å perfektion!
