TABLE COVER WITH SUMMER FLOWERS
If you are not already following skilled @ hanna.look, then her instagram profile is worth a visit. Hanna is from Germany, lives in Berlin and works as a model. See Hanna's Instagram profile here: @ hanna.look
Hanna is inspired by natural materials and focuses on food when setting the table:
Hanna: “I often use a variety of green and recyclable materials in my table setting and in my home. I'm incredibly inspired by Scandinavian designers and florists ”
Do you have a good rule of thumb for styling the perfect table?
Hanna “I usually start by choosing which colors to focus on. If I want a calm, natural color palette, I often use flax and wood as a base and add flowers, candles etc. to create atmosphere. And not least, I always have the food to be served in mind and how it will look in the whole.
Do you have a tip you want to pass on?
Hanna “flowers and candles are always a welcome feature and not least LESS IS MORE”
HOME WITH PHOTOGRAPHER SOFIE SUND

We have received help from the talented Norwegian photographer, Sofie Sund. Sofie has a completely unique eye for detail and the minimalist expression. We have asked her what she considers important to create the right atmosphere at her table.
Sofie is inspired to her work through many things, among these are magazines, books, various designers, and brands. Sofie's home is minimalist, and the dining area is built around white walls and a white dining table. That way, there is more room to play with strong colors and flowers in the decor.
Do you have any "rules" you follow when setting a table?
Sofie “No, I think you have to discard rules and think a little out of the box. A good idea is to choose one thing to start from. I often choose to start with the service I want to use. Besides the service, the most important thing is the flowers, whether it is from a florist or a bouquet found in the forest does not matter, but the most important thing for me is that the colors in the entire table setting complement each other. It is the colors that blend everything together. ”
Sofie's Tips for You:
“Have fun, experiment with your ideas and be creative. You can use almost anything from home, old and new combined and do not forget that nature offers many incredibly fine solutions. ”
