I just have to share this perfectly imperfect styled Stockholm studio space I recently read about in Residence Magazine…it belongs to Swedish Illustrator Sara N Bergman, who is also the creative behind Love Warriors (a styling and photography agency based in Sweden) and is photographed by Kristofer Johansson…
I just love the eclectic mix of rough exposed brick walls, white tiles with black grout and smooth concrete flooring. The Blackish vintage chairs, white sofa covered with grey sheepskins and the delicate photography of the 3 Love Warriors of the world (No 1, No 2 and No3) are so perfect together! The skillful combination of Tribal elements, classic black and white photography and industrial accents has a decidedly Nordic & Scandinavian feel.
This industrial locker works as storage but also as an inspirational mood board… while the large brown pots & baskets stacked on top remind me of my fondness for vintage browns and tribal details.
What was once a mechanics workshop is now a homely creative space. There is so much texture and detail and yet it doesn’t feel the least bit cluttered…just comfortable, inviting and interesting…Every corner filled with little curiosities!
By the nature of Sara’s work – there are many illustrations, artworks and photographs adorning the walls and table tops.
To accompany the artworks are Sara’s collections – like these rustic pottery pieces and folded linen. For me this space personifies Sarah and her eclectic style. She is this space and this space is her. I admire the intrinsic link between her and her environment. Her dedication to making this space her own is admirable.
