For my Friday series ‘Happily Ever After’ I love to feature the work of amazing interior stylists, photographers or designers. Today, I’ve picked the Sweden based stylist Sasa Antic (pronounce Sasha Antich). I happened to stumble over his work a year and something ago while researching the web on interior design. I spotted his work for Ikea and loved the creative approach and playful styling of one of Ikea’s colour specials. Plus, his name draw my attention as it indicates roots in the former Yugoslavia. So one thing we have in common.
Now, I’ve revisited his website and browsed through his styling work. I’ve selected a few inspiring photographies that I loved instantly. I like his refined colour compositions, the mix of Scandinavian style with eclectic flavors of a well-travelled man, the playful and boyish use of colour pops and accessories. Claim it on our similar ethnic roots, claim it on our similar tastes – but I’ve recognized myself in his work. Happy Friday, friends!

There are some great uses of colour/shapes here as well as a warm, friendly approach to the interiors he has styled. I love that it’s not too sleek/minimal, but it doesn’t feel cluttered or overdone – a tricky balance to strike!
Igor, there’s so much inspiration here! Great post. I’m going to have to learn a bit more about Sasa. His work is beautiful. Have a lovely day!
Hi Becky, hi Janis! Thank you for your lovely comments. I agree with both of you – I really felt inspired while browsing through Sasa’s work – I feel like I want to shuffle things around in my own place now:-)
I love this, great mix of everything and lovely colors! 🙂
Hi Igor, great find, very inspirational photographs and I loved your blog. Happy friday.
Tesekkür ederim, Nazli:-)
Oh Igor I love this!!! It is just beautiful. All of the pictures. SO inspring, great mix of colours, new and old, and most of all personal. I love when they style a home so that it looks like a home and not an exhibition. Never heard of Sasa before, so I’m going to go through his whole portfolio now. Thank you for sharing and Happy Friday 🙂
Oh, how beautiful! I love her use of moody blue-greys and all that amazing retro lighting!
Agree!! But it’s a ‘he’, just for the record:-))
You can hit me over the head if ever we meet ;-)… but there is so much clutter going on. Ok when I look past the clutter, there are some great pieces and styles here. Love that bright & airy ding space at the top.
Don’t blame me if I do hit you:-)))
The moment I saw Virginia Woolf on the book cover in that first photo, I knew that I would love this post! I simply HAVE TO repost your stuff! You are officially amazing!
Thank you very much:-) Very flattered!
thanks for the introduction, his work is beautiful
I love what’s going on in the kitchen corner in the second photo and the white home, the one with the white fire place
have a wonderful weekend 😉
There is some really fun and unexpected stuff going on there! Those lightbulbs in the archway! And then he gets really subtle with the white on white. Brilliant.
As soon as I saw how his name was pronounced, I thought it sounded like something from the former Yugoslavia, and then yes, you mentioned that! Always exciting for me to see. 🙂
You got my vote for #BlogBlitz today…. I just wanted to share that I enjoy reading your blog even though I don’t have time to comment. It’s always full of great visual content that inspires me, Igor. Thanks for taking the time to write it!
Sincerely, @tkpleslie Leslie.
I am very honored and happy to welcome you in my little happy digital home, Leslie! Thank you so much! This means a lot!
Amazing! Great find Igor…some gorgeous images here.
