Swedish Details

Foreword by Annika Huett, Ulf Huett Nilsson. Photographs by Ulf Huett Nilsson.

Swedish Details

Delight in the details: a treasure trove of Swedish interiors

A home isn't simply the sum of its rooms and furniture, but also a number of larger or smaller details. To prove this, illustrator Annika Huett and photographer Ulf Huett Nilsson went on a journey from the north to the south of Sweden, peeking into people's homes. What they found was an inspiring myriad of personal details—from cramped shelves of kitchen cupboards, to toilet-paper holders, plants, outlets and coat hangers. The pair organized their book by rooms—kitchens, bedrooms, children's rooms, bathrooms and entryways—so it's easy to flip to a section to glean inspiration for one's own home decoration scheme. With a range of photos, from large landscapes capturing entire rooms, to small close-ups of the little knickknacks one might normally overlook, the volume establishes an aesthetic uniquely Swedish and welcoming in its personality and warmth. The details captured are neither new nor expensive, nor are they the fashion-inspired, cutting-edge design that has come to characterize some corners of Scandinavia. Instead, they are personal, homey and almost impossible to replicate—and it is these qualities that make this compilation such a quirky delight. In Swedish Details, Huett and Huett Nilsson not only shine a light on the smaller things, but also document the details that create the difference between a space and a home.

Swedish Details

Scandinavian Country Style by Annika Huett and Ulf Huett Nilsson

"We're often in a hurry to throw away, exchange or rebuild. But the details that create a personal feel don't have to be new and expensive. An inherited vase in a glass cabinet. An old tap on the hand basin. A pink plastic mug with memories—you're not about to throw that away, it's an old friend." In a hunt for "fun and interesting stuff," illustrator Annika Huett and photographer Ulf Huett Nilsson explored Sweden, "peeking into room after room, and discovering that almost anything can be a fascinating detail." Their new book, beautifully produced and published by Max Ström, is the perfect gift for stylish moms everywhere. Featured image is from the chapter on Kitchens. continue to blog

Swedish Mom Decorating Style

Swedish moms have style! Stockholm illustrator Annika Huett and her husband, the photographer Ulf Huett Nilsson, scoured their home country for the fascinating details of daily design. Their adorable, beautifully produced new book from noted Swedish illustrated book publisher Max Ström gathers more than 500 photographs in interesting grids that show "how handsome superficially simple interior decoration details can be. Things that have been in the same place for a long time settle in and get comfortable with their surroundings. So give time to details. They might turn out to be the most beautiful things you own."
