Nathalie Schwer is an interior stylist and designer based in Copenhagen. Looking through her beautiful portfolio of work, I can't help but notice her incredible talent and unique versatility. Each project is visually captivating and tells a story. In fact, Natalie says she is driven by the challenge of creating a visual storyline. "I am privileged to work with the many different aspects of a space, and different aspects of the communication of design, interiors and furniture. For me spatial design and styling is the narrative of a space. I am fascinated by telling that story, understanding the significance of furniture, art, things, and the air in between."
I've picked out three of her projects, all very different yet equally inspiring, to demonstrate. In each one Nathalie has worked alongside one of my favourite Danish photographers Line Klein, who I first introduced you here.
The first is a French-themed editorial for Elle Decoration Denmark. Natalie says she tried to describe the feeling of a French woman in love... the beauty and self reflection of love, but also the feelings of melancholy and loneliness that being in love can evoke. Perfectly nailing this, to me the images have a dreamy, ethereal quality.
This next styling project is for Made By Hands, a Danish company that specialises in producing old classic designer lamps from Scandinavia. I especially love the outdoor setting with rustic bricks, the bright white wall and pot plants.
Nathalie carried out both the styling and art direction for the Broste Copenhagen Autumn/Winter '14 Catalogue. Darker and moodier, the story here tells of the winter melancholy of Scandinavia.
