As an interiors stylist myself, I love looking at the work of other stylists who are at the top of their game, for inspiration. One of my very favourite stylists is Hans Blomquist whose instagram account is filled with beautiful dark hued images and textured walls, which have become his signature style. If you want to learn a few styling tips from Hans, I highly recommend his book In Detail, which showcases many of his beautiful images.
These are some of my favourite images from that book.
Its no surprise then that Hans has collaborated with lime wash paint specialists Bauwerk, an Australian company that are now available to order in the UK here. His collection of 9 colours are inspired by his childhood in Sweden and his travels around the world working for clients such as Westelm and H&M.
The paints are made from calcium carbonate, a natural mineral containing no toxins or chemicals and provide a beautiful texture and depth to walls.Large samples of the colours painted onto card can be ordered on the Bauwerk website which are perfect for moving around a room at various times of the day to see how the colour will look in different lights.
Hans has recently written a new book “In the mood for colour” which I intend to buy to learn a little more from his tips and tricks of the trade.
