Light greige walls and styling love

This beautiful warm grey-beige (greige) wall color combined with nice styling caught my eye today. It’s a little bit scary that I tend to like interiors with greige walls just a little too much lately – I hope I won’t start thinking about changing wall color in our home…  Too much going on even without it! (As you may guess from the frequency of posts lately…)

Some things on the photos:

Sofa is Salton from Sofacompany, the lamp beside it is Rope Trick from Wrong for Hay.

The trolley is from Domo Design, lamp attached is Noc light from Wrong for Hay, print above the trolley is from Printler.

Bedside table is Menu Yeh wall table, lamp hanging on the wall is versatile Menu Bollard lamp, similar dark grey or black linen bedding can be found from H&M Home collection.

 

Skandinaavia stiilis interjöörides on viimasel ajal üha trendikamaks muutumas soojemates hallides ja hallikas-beežides toonides seinad. Greige on nende toonide ühine nimetaja inglise keeles. Aeg-ajalt taban ennast mõttelt, et oleks huvitav ka oma kodus veidike seinavärviga eksperimenteerida, kuid arvestades mu niigi tihedaid ja sageli unetundidesse sissesõitvaid päevi ei ole see vist hetkel väga hea mõte… 

Spikerdamiseks piltidelt: 

Diivan on Sofacompany Salton, lamp diivani kõrval on Wrong for Hay Rope Trick

Serveerimislaud on Domo Design, sellele kinnituv lamp on Wrong for Hay Noc light, pilt seinal on Printler kollektsioonist.

Lauake voodi kõrval on Menu Yeh wall table, seinal rippuv lamp on Menu Bollard lamp, sarnast tumedat linast voodipesu võib leida H&M Home kollektsioonist (kahjuks nende eesti e-poes hetkel ei tundu saadaval olevat).

I have always loved chunky knits, both as clothing pieces and as  interior accessories, so I am really happy owning one now from Ohhio.
Ohhio is an Ukraine-based design studio focused on creating hand-made goods for customers who value individuality, honest materials and high quality. The idea behind Ohhio was born when its founder Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko found herself confronted with a spool of gigantically thick wool. She wanted to make something out of it, but as she didn’t have suitable knitting needles for that task she started knitting with her bare hands. The result was a blanket with gigantic stitches and as she loved its aesthetic so much she ordered more wool. Today all Ohhio pieces are hand knitted with bare hands.

Ohhio has been highly inspired by Nordic culture and lifestyle. Products made by hand from honest and natural material – Australian merino wool – are perfectly in accordance with the concept of slow living and their simple, clean and laconic designs reflect the love for minimalism.

Needless to say, I really love my Ohhio blanket –  it’s luxuriously soft and warm to sit on or wrap around. With its over-sized stitches Ohhio blankets add so much texture wherever used for decorating. It is definitely a statement piece and perfect for creating warm and cozy feeling in a room. In addition to all of that I think that this extreme knit blanket is really photogenic – I love to use it for styling and it looks so good on photos, don’t you agree?

Adding warmth and texture with Icelandic sheepskin

June 13, 2015

 
Scandinavian style is well known for its simple and minimal yet warm and cozy feeling what is created by using different natural materials and textures. If you are a regular reader here you know how much I love Scandinavian interiors and that my own home is also decorated keeping Nordic style in mind. However, sometimes I feel that our home is little bit too minimalist and I have started to think about different ways of how to add more coziness and warmth to it. I’ve always admired beautiful long-haired sheepskins in different Scandi-style interiors and how they make monochrome and minimal interiors instantly cozier and welcoming. So I finally decided that it was about the time to get one for our home too. I was really happy when I found Furbazaar webshop with really good selection of different sheepskins.

Furbazaar is a Danish webshop offering skin and fur products for both interior decorating and fashion. The selection of interior products is really wide – from cow hides and various sheepskins to seat covers and cushions. And what made me smile was the free international shipping they offer! When talking about skins and fur, animal welfare is always a question for me and I was happy to find out that Furbazaar exclusively has products from certified suppliers who are subjects to strict regulations and requirements. So you can be sure that whatever you buy from them it’s coming from sustainable resources.

As there are many gorgeous sheepskins in variety of tones and sizes I had to thought long before choosing which one to take. Finally I decided to go for natural grey long wool Icelandic sheepskin – with white walls and white sofa in the living room I thought that something little bit darker would add more interest to the room. It’s 100% natural, undyed and organic and feels really gorgeous!

My new Icelandic sheepskin has found a perfect spot on our sofa, I think it adds the much needed coziness, texture and a little bit darker tones to the living room.

It looks rather gorgeous also in our bedroom, so when not on the sofa I use it there.

Shop love | Frankie and Frenchie

May 28, 2015

 
Frankie and Frenchie Zero to Hero fitted sheet

 
Today I want to share with you one of my latest online store finds – Frankie and Frenchie. I was searching for a new bedding for my two year old which would look nice to me and at the same time was fun enough to please my little one and I was lucky enough to stumble across Frankie and Frenchie and their gorgeous range of modern and playful kids bedding. In addition to modern minimalist Scandinavian style that I love so much, it’s also important to me that the textiles hugging my kid during those precious sleep hours wouldn’t contain any harmful substances. Fortunately, the bedding from Frankie and Frenchie fills this criteria as well – they use only GOTS certified organic cotton and water based ink to produce their textiles. Lovely designs combined with kid and eco friendly production – what else to look for? :)

Minnie and Dee, the girls behind Frankie and Frenchie, kindly agreed to answer some questions, so that we can have a peek behind the brand and get inspired by their story.
 

Tell us a little bit of your background.
We have known each other for more than 10 years and both reside in sunny Queensland, Australia. It was our similar interest in interiors, graphic design, fashion and all things pretty that brought us together to start Frankie and Frenchie. Since the business went online six months ago, it has been a crazy experience for us learning to juggle work, kids and family so it is no surprise when we say we sometimes are sleep deprived!

How you came to the idea to launch Frankie and Frenchie?
We both have allergy boys with eczema and we found it hard to source for organic bedding that was gentle on their skin but also cool enough to fit with our home interiors. A light bulb moment happened and like other businesses that started by identifying a gap in the market, we decided that with our background in interior design and marketing, we could fill that gap.

We sat down and put a few concepts down on paper and communicated what our philosophy was going to be. We both agreed that we wanted to stay ethical and support Australian businesses were we can. Hence Frankie & Frenchie is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and printed using environmentally friendly water based ink. It is made and printed in Australia to reduce our carbon footprint.

How would you describe your style?
Our style would have to be modern minimalism with a dash of quirkiness. We try to incorporate fun into everything we do, because at the end of the day we are designing for kids.

Where do you find inspiration for your designs?
Anything and everything! We believe that inspiration begins with a space that is filled with the things we love. We love things like interiors, fashion, graphic design and the cityscape. We can find inspiration from tile patterns to colour combinations on the catwalk. The one thing we always ask ourselves when designing is “will this work in the boys room and does it reflect their personality?” So our boys are our biggest inspiration.

How do you balance work and family life?
We make sure that we have days just dedicated to spending time with our family where we do fun stuff like having picnics in the park, going to the museum or just spending quality time at home.

It does get hectic at times but at the end of the day family comes first! So we find ourselves working during odd hours of the night when the kids are in bed. Other working mums with business can empathise with us on that!

We also are constantly messaging each other about ideas when we see something of interest or how we can do something better. Our brains never switch off!

What is your advice to someone thinking about launching an (online) business but still in doubt?
Don’t let fear stop you from doing something that you have been dreaming about. If money is an issue, start small then build it up by connecting with your customers and the online community. So stop dreaming and start doing, sometimes when you think about things for too long it becomes overwhelming. You’ll learn from your mistakes along the way, we sure have!

Today I wanted to share with you this really simple yet stunning bedroom decorated in soft neutral color palette. White walls, white curtains, white wardrobe combined with bedding in light grey and beige hues result in a calm and peaceful room where it should be really easy to unwind after a long and busy day. Art on the wall goes so well with the rest of the room as well as the bedside table which is actually a IKEA Frosta stool painted in a beautiful shade of grey.

Last week I was happy to receive a new print A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose from One Must Dash. I put my eye on this print as soon as it was launched because I really love it’s minimal and delicate look. Right now it found a place in my bedroom, although it fits really well also onto my living room wall – I think it will be shifting from one place to another depending on my mood.

One Must Dash is a collaboration of two Swedish girls creating interior accessories that  celebrate the quirky moments of everyday life. I think that many of you are already familiar with their gorgeous collection (including such iconic prints as Small Talk and The Only Way Is Up), but those of you who are new to this brand I definitely recommend to have a look at their selection here.
