Monochrome with wood and green plants

Scandinavian style decoration inspiration from Decordots blog


I love the simplicity and minimalism of Scandinavian style and the combination of black, white, grey with wood and green plants. So I have tried to bring that look also to our living room. That’s how my favorite corner of our living room looks like on good days (you’re right, I won’t show you how it looks on those not so good days when everything is a big mess … ). Sometimes when I saw some perfect interior decorated in soft muted hues and neutrals I start to think about redecorating, but then again I fell in love with this crisp white look we have in our living room right now.

Urban Jungle Bloggers | My plant shelfie

Plant shelfie from Decordots blog #urbanjunglebloggers


String shelf styling from Decordots blog

Details on my shelf



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? :)


Urban Jungle Bloggers is a monthly series hosted by Igor from Happy Interior Blog and Judith from Joelix. Every month Urban Jungle Bloggers share ideas, tips and tricks for living with houseplants and making our lives greener.



Baby plant

October 15, 2014



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 :)

Decorating with green plants

May 7, 2013

It seems to me that lately greenery and decorating with plants has become very popular as I see it over Pinterest and in many blogs I read. And I’m really happy about that because I have been a little green thumb for many years already and finally it seems to be also trendy! :)

I have quite many plants in my apartment and I’ve been thinking about the ways how to group them together to create visually more pleasing result. One thing I think I’ll need is a plant shelf or something for my living room to create some height variation so that plants won’t be too closely together.

Below you’ll find beautiful examples of how to decorate with green plants (this time I chose only images with more than one plant, although one plant alone can be also really stunning). I hope you’ll find it inspiring and bring a plant or two to your home if you already don’t have some :) There are many plants that help to clean the air indoors, so besides looking nice they can benefit for healthier home also!

My latest interior project | Modern + vintage

March 24, 2017

Scandinavian apartment, modern mixed with vintage. Styling and photography Anu Tammiste


Today I’m happy to share with you one of my latest interior projects. It’s a small 42 sqm apartment in Tallinn, with high ceilings and large windows in a beautifully renovated house by Larsen Kinnisvara. Although small it feels airy and spacious thanks to high ceilings and large windows.

As the home owner already had some beautiful Scandinavian vintage pieces we decided to mix these with some new furniture to achieve modern look with a touch of midcentury feeling. Small spaces need some really good storage to be functional without feeling cluttered and therefore two large custom built-in wardrobes were planned for bedroom and entryway. Both of these cabinets and also bathroom furniture was custom made by Näpi Puit. The apartment has beautiful concrete ceilings which give the space character. To bring concrete also to the bathroom we chose concrete worktop with a sink custom made by Valukivi. Pale oak flooring and warm tones of vintage furniture pieces give the space some warmth. I found some really nice mustard yellow accessories from H&M Home which together with other monochrome details create welcoming feel to this little apartment.

This apartment will soon be available for rent, so if you need a small and nice place to stay in Tallinn, let me know :)

It’s a new month again and as a tradition I start it here with a flashback to the previous month in my Instagram feed. This time, instead of posting a collage, I share some of the photos from July in full size. Those of you who follow me on Instagram have probably seen these already, but I hope you don’t mind seeing the selection again – after all they look much bigger here too :)

In my kitchen | A Smart Herb Garden

June 9, 2015

White Scandinavian kitchen with kitchen island

Smart Herb Garden from Click and Grow


Today I want to introduce you to something fun, nice-looking and useful I’ve had on my kitchen island for a couple of weeks – a Smart Herb Garden from Click & Grow.

Click & Grow is an innovative Estonian company offering automated indoor gardening solutions and what makes me really happy is that their products have beautiful design that is in perfect fit with minimalist Scandinavian style of my home. As we have sloped ceiling in our kitchen we don’t have window sills where I could place traditional herb pots and the north facing roof window over the kitchen island doesn’t provide enough light for growing herbs, especially during the darker months. So the Smart Herb Garden is a perfect solution for our kitchen as I don’t have to be concerned whether my indoor herbs are getting enough light, nutrients or water. Also, what amazed me was how fast the herbs were growing! These photos are taken approximately a week ago and by today the plants are at least doubled in size so we’ve had the first harvest already. And it looks rather stylish and beautiful too! :)
