Bold kitchen colour choice and good idea to blend kitchen cabinets into the wall by using the same colour on furniture and on the wall.

My new camera

My new mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-T10

Workspace details

 

I have received questions about what gear I use to shoot my photos for blog and Instagram and since I have had a new work companion for already a month now I thought it would be nice to introduce it properly and answer your questions about my equipment too. Before I proceed I’d like to highlight that this post isn’t sponsored in any way.

So, my new camera is Fujifilm X-T10. I had thought about updating my camera for a while (I used Canon 40D previously which had served me many years), but couldn’t decide whether to try mirrorless camera or continue with DSLR. I received this camera as a surprise birthday gift, so I didn’t have to go through that long and hard decision process I usually have when buying new things. I won’t write a long review about this camera here as you can read those from special photography sites (those that I read were singing praises to X-T10!). All I say is that my DSLR gear is now put on sale and I have bought two good lenses (Fujinon XF 14mm f2.8 and XF 35mm f2) in addition to kit lenses that came together with the camera body, so I definitely will continue with it as my main camera. It looks beautiful and is extremely lightweight, even with lens attached. Third photo is the best one to show how little this camera actually is. When I have it side by side with my Canon camera it looks like a toy. I’m in love.

When Daniella Witte shared on her Instagram that her home is in the current issue of Swedish Elle Decoration I wanted to see it immediately. Unfortunately I didn’t have an access to the magazine so I had to wait until it was posted on their website and today was the day!

Daniella Witte lives in a renovated old horse farm near Malmö with her family. Their home is in constant change – I posted about her home over two years ago here and compared to that time the whole interior has got more darker look (which is so on trend in Scandinavian home decor right now). Beautifully balanced mix between old and new, designer pieces and vintage finds. Love it.

Sending beautiful flowers

I had a birthday last week and I thought I’d share some photos of that day also with you. Whenever I have some beautiful fresh flowers at home I feel like I just have to photograph them.

I was fortunate to receive a beautiful bouquet for my birthday via Floraqueen who specialises in delivering fresh flowers worldwide. I think that possibility to send flowers to someone special wherever she lives is such a great idea and beautiful surprise for different occasions. Flowers are arranged by local florists and sent to the one you’d like to surprise on a selected date.

My bouquet was made of white roses and lilies and besides smelling divine it really made my dining table look more special than usual. Everyday, I like to bring flowers from fields or from my own garden, so this nicely arranged bouquet reminded me that it was a little more special day whenever I looked at it :)

Continuing with summer mood. This relaxed contemporary kitchen from a wooded surrounds at the base of Grouse Mountain in Vancouver with lots of open storage space fits perfectly into a modern summer home. Transformed from a 1950s building into a modern living space by Scott & Scott architects this is a beautiful mix of simple and honest materials like wood and marble with natural and light colour palette.

Summer mood and a perfect minimalist summer home

It has been quite quiet here lately… It was not intended, but summer is what happened and lots of stuff going on.

This beautiful summer home from Fantastic Frank what feels minimalist and warm at the same time has been doing rounds in blogs for some time now, but as it fits so perfectly into my summer mood right now I can’t help to share it too. I’m almost feeling the summer breeze on my cheek when looking the photo of the bedroom and smell the pines trees on a sunny day on the first photo of the post. Perfect summer mood if you ask me.
 

 

My living room + H&M Home

June 7, 2016

I had the chance to style some of my favourite items from H&M Home new collection and this is the result. The new autumn collection has calm and contemporary feel and with natural materials and beautiful washed-out colours it fits perfectly into my home.

And the great news is that finally we have H&M Home also in my home town Tartu! :)

Mõnda aega tagasi sain võimaluse stiliseerida ja pildistada mõned ilusad tooted H&M Home uuest kollektsioonist. Selle aasta suvelõpu-sügise kollektsioonist leiab mitmeid ehedatest looduslikest materjalidest esemeid, mis oma vormilt ja värvilt sobivad ideaalselt kaasaegsesse põhjamaisesse kodusse. Minu lemmik on see metallist vaas, mis näeb välja nagu oleks see tehtud betoonist või kivist ning koos luitunud puidust kandiku ja karbiga lisavad monokroomsesse sisustusse vaheldust ja tekstuuri. 

Hea uudis on see, et H&M Home on nüüd ka mu kodulinnas Tartus täitsa olemas, uues Kvartali keskuses :)
