It’s all in the details

A few days ago, I published a link on Facebook to a beautiful home for sale, shot by Mikael Axelsson. I just saw that he updated his portfolio blog today with another home, so I had to check it out. While the general styling of this home wasn’t exactly my style, I really loved the little detail shots.
A lot of thought seems to have been put in to these small vignettes, even if they look very relaxed, and they come off as personal and very stylish. It’s just simple things, nothing extravagant, and most of them are easy to copy for your own home if you’d like. While finding a shark jaw like this might be hard, filling whisky bottles with homemade schnaps, putting them on a shelf and attaching some stamped paper tags (in this case seed sachets), or ripping stylish pics out of magazines, is very doable.

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].
