Cozy apartment in shades of grey

June 26, 2017


One of my favorites on Instagram Jasmina Bylund (@jasminabylund) is selling her apartment and I just had to share as I’ve long admired this cozy yet modern style of her home. You can find more photos of her home and stylings in her lovely blog.

Susanna Vento for Kannustalo

June 19, 2017


It’s time to break a silence here. I’ve been really busy with interior design projects lately and this poor blog here and my Instagram have got very little attention recently. Besides work, both of our kids have birthdays on that beautiful time when spring is turning into summer so we had two birthday parties to party :) And last (but not least at all) we got married and although we celebrated it only with our families it took unbelievable amount of time to prepare everything for this day.

For me it’s quite hard to write a post if I haven’t done it for a while – it feels like the post after a long pause should be something special, something that really makes me want to share it with you. When I spotted the photos of a styling Susanna Vento did for Kannustalo over at her Instagram I knew that it was something I wanted to share here too. The loft-inspired modern wooden house built by Kannustalo is situated in a beautiful surroundings and has breathtaking views. The interior design has centered around the nature and blending indoors with outdoors. You can see lots of wood and natural materials used in this interior so despite the modern and minimalist look the home doesn’t feel sterile at all. This house is a part of a Finnish Housing Fair 2017 that will take place in Mikkeli this summer.

You can see beautiful stylings from Susanna Vento also here and here.


Lõpuks üks postitus pärast pikemat pausi. Viimased nädalad on olnud väga tihedalt täidetud sisekujundusalase tööga ning mu vaene blogi ja Instagram pole just liialt palju tähelepanu saanud.  Meie mõlemal lapsel on samuti sünnipäevad sellel ilusal ajal, mil kevadest saab suvi, seega tuli lisaks tööle ka kaks sünnipäevapidu korraldada ja pidada. Ja muidugi ei saa mainimata jätta ka seda, et vahepeal abiellusin – tegime küll armsa väikse peo ainult oma perele, kuid siiski võttis kõige organiseerimine üllatavalt palju aega. 

Minu jaoks on alati uue postituse kirjutamine raske kui vahepeal on pikem paus sisse jäänud – tundub, et see peaks siis olema midagi väga head ja erilist, mis paneb uuesti üle pika aja postitust kirjutama. Kui ma märkasin andeka soome stilisti Susanna Vento Instagrami kontol pilte tema kujundusprojektist Kannustalo jaoks, siis tundus, et see on midagi, mida tahaksin jagada. See moodne Kannustalo puitmaja asub maalilises ümbruses Saimaal ja vaated on lihtsalt imelised. Sisekujunduses on seda ära kasutatud ja püütud veelgi rõhutada kasutades naturaalseid materjale, palju puitu ning valides lihtsa joonega sisustuse. Seda maja on võimalik ka oma silmaga vaadata selleaastasel Soome elamumessil

Susanna Vento töid olen ka varem kajastanud siin and siin.

My work in Diivan magazine

May 8, 2017



One of my latest interior projects (which I featured also here) got published in a local home decor and design magazine Diivan. I’m superhappy about it – my interior design, my styling for shooting and my photos!

Also, I put together a portfolio site featuring some of my work and services, you can find it here (at the moment it’s available only in Estonian).


Üks mu hiljutisi sisekujundusprojekte (mida kajastasin siin) avaldati ajakirja Diivan mai numbris. Muidugi olen ma kõrvust tõstetud ja eriti hea meel on selle üle, et nii sisekujundus, stiliseerimine pildistamise jaoks kui ka fotod on minu tehtud. 

Lisaks panin ma mõned päevad tagasi kokku oma portfoolio lehe, selle leiab siit



Bedroom styling with H&M Home

May 3, 2017



In my last post I promised to show you how I have used some of my favorite H&M Home products in my own home. So here are some photos of my bedroom with gorgeous natural beige linen bedding I had had on my wish list for months, but it was always sold out when I looked for it. It creates a beautiful tone on tone styling with a wall color we have in our bedroom. As you have maybe already noticed from my Instagram feed I really like the new speckled ceramics too and it even inspired me to frame one of my splatter ink drawings I did last year, which had been left in the bottom of the drawer for over a year.


Eelmises postituses lubasin ma näidata, kuidas olen kasutanud mõndasid oma lemmikasju H&M Home kollektsioonist oma kodus ja siin ongi mõned pildid mu magamistoast. Olin juba ammu tahtnud saada omale üht naturaalse linase tooni voodipesukomplekti, mis harmoneeruks uue seinavärviga ja looks toon-toonis efekti. Enamasti pole seda saada olnud, aga nüüd lõpuks sain! Lisaks meeldib mulle väga nende uuest kollektsioonist see pisikeste täpikestega keraamika, millest kasutasin selles stiliseeringus alustassi ja kausikest. Need täpikestega nõud inspireerisid mind raamima ära ühe mu tehtud “joonistuse”, mis oli juba üle aasta teenimatult sahtlipõhjas seisnud. 



And here is almost the same setting, but I added a pop of terracotta red with a velvet cushion cover from H&M Home new collection. Only a little change, but with a big impact! It also demonstrates how easy it is to change the look in a room which has decorated in neutral color scheme. Just add some colorful accessories and change them when you get tired of the look or have found a new favorite color you wish to add to your home.
Ja siin on peaaegu täpselt samasugune tuba, ainult selle vahega, et lisasin väheke värvi terrakota punase velvetist padjakattega (samuti H&M Home uuest kollektsioonist). Pisike muudatus, aga suur muutus! Samuti näitab see hästi, kui kerge on neutraalsetes toonides kujundatud ruumi muuta – lisa lihtsalt mõned värvilised aksessuaarid ning kui värvist tüdined on seda väga kerge mõne uue lemmikvärvi vastu vahetada.

H&M Home new Tartu store opening – part I

April 29, 2017




Today H&M opens it’s second store in my hometown Tartu with a new and bigger H&M Home department. Before the official opening I was asked to select my favorite pieces from their current collection and all these products are marked with a special label for one week starting from today. So if you are in Tartu go and visit the shop to see my favorites!

During the next week I will also show you some styled photos where I have used some of my favorite H&M Home pieces, so stay tuned :)


Täna avab Tartus uuenenud Lõunakeskuses uksed linna teine H&M pood ja minu suureks rõõmuks ka uus ja suurem H&M Home osakond. Ametliku avamise eel oli mul võimalus valida hetkel poes olevast kollektsioonist oma lemmikasjad ja need on nüüd terve nädala vältel Lõunakeskuse poes spetsiaalselt märgistatud. Seega kui oled Tartus, siis astu läbi ja vaata, millised asjad ma välja valisin! 

Järgmise nädala jooksul plaanin teha ka ühe postituse, milles näitan, kuidas ma mõningaid asju sellest valikust oma kodus kasutanud olen :)


Timeless elegance

April 19, 2017



I always admire elegant and stylish interiors that easily pass the test of time and the home of Swedish interior designer Louise Liljencrantz is one of those. Decorated in beautiful neutral shades and rich textures it looks classical and timeless.

Naturally dyed Easter eggs

April 15, 2017



For this year’s snowy Easter I decided to make some warm toned eggs with natural dyes. As this was a real last minute project I used things I had in my kitchen, these eggs above are dyed with strong black coffee and with onion peels. It was easy with the coffee – brewed some really strong cups and after it was cooled to room temperature I added a tablespoon of vinegar and soaked boiled eggs there about three hours. As for onion peels I boiled them in water about an hour and then the same – vinegar, boiled eggs and some hours of waiting. Simple and all natural :)

Minimalist city maps by Grafomap

March 28, 2017



City map posters have been popular home decor pieces for some years now. Its minimalist design easily fits in different interior styles and adds some personality to a space as there’s usually a story behind the city chosen for the poster.

When Grafomap kindly offered me a poster of my choice I knew it would be a perfect gift for a friend moving away from Estonia very soon. I chose the map of Tallinn which is currently her hometown so that she can put it up on the wall of her new home in San Francisco as a sweet reminder of her hometown, family and friends there.
You can search your favorite places by the name of the city or even by aadress, there are basically unlimited choices for custom design of the poster.
