Tina Hellberg is an interior stylist based in Stockholm who lives on an island in a very old house with her husband, Niklas Andersson, daughters Ebba and Hedda, and Australian Kelpie, Vira. A seasoned stylist veteran, Hellberg creates spaces and connections between the things that surround us. Inspired by nature, functionalism, literature, and artists such as Agnes Martin, Hilma af Klint, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, and Tim Walker, it's easy to see how her influences are reflected onto her scenes. In addition to styling, Hellberg builds, hunts, arranges, and set designs most of her sceneographies—all part of the job.

"When doing private homes either for real or just rearranging them to make more inspirational and understandable pictures, it’s about regrouping, adding, or taking away stuff. When do I know that it all works out in a good way? Well it’s a feeling— a good feeling, a satisfaction of sorts when there is a harmony in the layout and the furniture and the other stuff you have in a home plays the same tune or maybe sometimes even a bit of disharmony is vital for an interesting look."
