The Tilda studio is situated on a small island on the Oslo fjord in Norway, surrounded by water and nature.
This is where we work with sewing, design and photography to create Tildas world.
When we have visitors they stay in a neighbour’s garden cottage, and we eat on the local restaurant where the owners are good friends.
It must be the best place on earth to work and live.
Most of the time the studio looks like the pictures below, well, a bit messier perhaps… But when we photograph the whole place changes as we build scenes.
Large linen closets works well as shelve units for fabric and materials.
Strange sweet elements, like old scraps and labels is great inspiration.
In the sewing aria models are made for all the Tilda books.
There is a lot of inspiration to be found in old cigar boxes.
A copy room is built as a shop front for photography and exhibitions.
The tree foxes are from the book “Tildas vintereventyr”/”Tildas fairy tail wonderland”.
Grandmas charming old doll house-doll is a little treasure kept as a lucky charm. Here she is posing with a Tilda doll.
