Stina Wirsén’s creations can be described as colourful and diverse. They’re her great joy, passion and therapy. It all started in 1968, when Stina Wirsén was one year old and clutched a pen for the first time. A single moment, and that was it: a lifelong acquaintance and a future career. That day was followed by a degree from the Stockholm University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, illustrations in daily newspapers in areas ranging from politics to fashion, public art exhibits in Sweden and the world – and, of course, a multitude of children’s books.

Whether those are retro-inspired wall prints or ultra-modern furniture, so consider swapping out any dark-hued designs with brighter counterparts this spring. If you’ve been living Scandi for a while, it’s likely your home comprises of a mostly monochrome colour palette – so inject vivid accent colours such as red, green, yellow or orange to make the colours pop against a neutral background and welcome spring in style.
