Three gorgeous bedrooms that have caught my eye lately. The first one is from Nettanatalias blog – I like the idea of using Menu Yeh Wall Table as a bedside table and the cozy feeling those dark bedroom textiles give that space. The second one is from gorgeous Ale Besso blog – simple and fresh, yet so cozy! I’m still so much into wrinkled linen bedding and this one here is no exception. The last one is from Nordic Leaves – stunning mix of different textures and patterns, just love it!
It’s my first time to take part from Urban Jungle Bloggers monthly challenge – the topic “My plant shelfie” was something I just couldn’t resist! So here it is – my String shelf in my living room styled with using some of my green plants. Actually I have many plants on that shelf everyday, so it was not a huge challenge, just rearranged it for a fresh look. So what do you think? :)
This lovely apartment with grey walls is actually only 38 sqare meters, but it feels so much larger. Definitely this fabulous black steel-framed indoor window dividing kitchen and bedroom adds much to the feeling of spaciousness.
I hope your weekend has had a great start! Mine definitely does, it was sunny (although chilli) day today and I finally managed to do some organizing in my wardrobe what I had planned for so long.
This cozy home in Norway belongs to a graphic design student Mari Kristin Olsen and her family. I have seen black walls in more and more homes lately and although I think they aren’t quite for me (just love bright and light walls too much for this) they look stunning in this home, especially the one in the kitchen.
Now and then I have to trim my plants to limit their growth a little bit and maintain their good shape and I find it very hard to throw away the parts I cut from the plants. So there are many baby plants growing in my home. Don’t ask where I’ll put them if they grow bigger as I don’t know it yet … I think we’ll need a bigger home :)
A new beautiful chair JANINGE designed by From Us With Love design studio for IKEA. It’s made of reinforced polypropylene plastic and has a modern feel.
According to Jonas Pettersson of Form Us With Love:
“JANINGE are chairs that works equally well around a dining table in the home as a restaurant.The chairs are sleek, extremely durable and we have put a lot of care that they’ll look good from every angle – even from below.If I summarize JANINGE it’s chairs made to last long.They are durable even for the eye.”
I especially love the shape and clean lines of the armchair, I think it would fit perfectly into a Nordic style home office! Available in white, yellow and grey from mid October.
Today’s At home with series features a gorgeous minimalist and modern home in Finland. It belongs to an art director Maja who shares the process of building and decorating their new home in her lovely blog Musta ovi. This home is not even finished yet, but the photos of different corners from it have always caught my eye whenever I see them online.
Here are Maja’s answers to 5 decorating related questions:
Five words what you think the best describe your home? Scandinavian with a touch of loft-style, light, modern and cosy
What is your favourite spot or favourite piece of furniture in your home at the moment?
My favourite spot is definitely our hallway. There you can see at the glance the whole house: huge concrete wall, the fireplace and the kitchen.
What are your favourite places for shopping things for your home? Any favourite webshops?
The best webshop is Finnish Design Shop. Other favourite shops are for example Menu, Hay, Ferm Living and House Doctor.
What is currently on your wish list for your home?
I need four armchairs to our living room. On my wish list are Hay’s ”About a Chair Lounges”.
What advice would you give to someone who starts decorating and wants to achieve the style similar to that in your home?
Mix some Scandinavian design with a industrial style, flea market finds and DIYs.
Thank you, Maja, for your time and for the inspiration you share!
Love this beautiful minimalist interior styled by talented Annaleena Leino for Blooc house. It’s all about light, shapes and contrasts with green plants, soft textiles and wooden details here and there adding some coziness.
