City map prints are currently really trendy and I’ve updated the wall behind the sofa with two elegant map posters from Encyclopaedia Urbana.
Encyclopaedia Urbana is a collection of over 200 stunning city articles in print format. Every print features a beautiful map along with interesting information about the city and at the bottom of every print there’s also a seal, which makes the print unique. The prints are made of high-quality, durable paper and are shipped worldwide without any additional shipping costs.
This is the perfect gift for someone who’s especially fond of some of the cities in the collection (or some other city, they do take custom requests), or for yourself if you want to make your home or office a little bit more stylish and interesting.
I’m happy to say that Encyclopaedia Urbana has a special offer for Decordots readers – you’ll currently get 20% off the price when using the coupon code DECORDOTS at check out.

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…)
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…
News from Muuto landed today into my inbox and three great new products are soon available.
Control is a new minimalistic lamp with strong references to both original Hi-Fi equipment and industrial control panels. The light is switched on and off with a heavy click by turning the solid but elegant knob, which also regulates the bulbs intensity. The small size of the lamp allows it to fit in where other lamps do not: on narrow windowsills, in tightly-packed bookshelves and on small bedside tables.
Framed is a series of colored glass mirrors designed by the prominent Norwegian design company Anderssen & Voll, who took the approach of giving new perspective to the conservative mirror.
Ply is a new woolen rug with timeless design. Ply comes in five color combinations and in three sizes with finishing tassels in the corners.
Copenhagen-based artist Silke Bonde has released new watercolor collection Under Water consisting of three art prints Melt, Stripe and Dot. The collection was inspired by diving trips where she fell in love with the beautiful new world she met beneath the surface. She says “The new “Under water collection” is inspired by the shapes, patterns and structures you find under the sea. They are all made with watercolours to reflect the organic shapes and the floating life. When you dive under the surface the red colour is the first one to disappear. The blue is the last one.”
I’m lucky to have one of these beautiful art prints and I must admit that I fell in love with it as soon as I received it. The shades used are really pretty and it brings lovely spring vibe into my otherwise quite monochrome home.
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?

Art is such an important thing in home decor so I’m always happy to find something I like and that goes well with my aesthetics and style of my home – my new photo art print from Faces of Nepal collection definitely fits in perfectly!
Not only does the photos look beautiful in their simplicity, there’s also a deeper story behind them. Namely, Faces of Nepal is a charity project by German photographer Sophia Maier in collaboration with Posterlounge. The proceeds from the sale of her photos are donated to the initiative Hilfe für Nepal, which helps rebuild the country after the earthquake of 2015.
Faces of Nepal collection is sold by Posterlounge, an online shop for high-quality art prints, movie posters, modern illustrations and beautiful photography created by both contemporary and historical artists. They have really wide selection of wall art and no matter what art style you prefer you probably find something that fits in. The company is based in Leipzig and they ship worldwide.
I’m happy to announce that Posterlounge is giving away a photo print from Faces of Nepal collection to one of you, dear readers! Just write the name of your favorite photo from the collection in comments and you are in! The winner can choose the photo he or she would like to get. Giveaway is open worldwide and the winner will be announced here and on our Facebook page on 3rd March.

Tulips are one of my favourite spring flowers and bringing them home is like allowing the spring to move in bit by bit. Although most of the days are still quite dark and grey here, it’s so much more light around compared to the time a month ago. Today it’s so beautiful and sunny and it feels that spring is not far away any more (at least when staying inside where you don’t feel the cold wind).
Finally I have started to decorate for Christmas. I was waiting for the first snow to get that right spirit for Christmas preparations, but I can’t wait any longer… For me decorating our home for Christmas means bringing some green branches inside, adding some extra candles and of course Christmas tree, which will be brought home some days before Christmas. Baking gingerbread cookies, listening to Christmas carols and wrapping those carefully chosen presents for the dearest are definitely also in my Christmas list.
I try to credit the source of the photos I use, but if you notice I have made a mistake or you are not happy with me using your photo feel free to let me know.
