Almost two weeks of this new year have flown by and it seems quite late to wish you a happy new year, but I will do it regardless… I wish this new year will have plenty of wonderful things waiting for you, that light and good thoughts will guide you and you will have plenty of time to stop and look around, reflect and take time for what is most important and what you really like to do.

Christmas is approaching and while we are still waiting until the next weekend to bring in the tree I have started adding some subtle Christmas decorations here and there. When it comes to setting home holiday ready I like to keep things simple and not overdo it – some evergreen branches, cones and a few decor items are enough for me to bring the feeling in. This year I found some really nice golden accessories from H&M Home that give instantly festive look to any room. And the good thing is that apart from Christmas hangings all these items can be used also beyond the holiday season!

Things used for styling: Christmas hangings, glass vase, sphere trinket box, stoneware mug, round wooden tray, quilted bedspread and linen bedding – all from H&M Home.

Some time ago I posted a few pictures of my living room with a my photo of raindrops on a window hanging on the wall and got huge amount of emails asking where this photo is from and how it can be bought. Since I still get these emails I thought it would be more convenient to open my own little shop where anyone interested can get it quickly. Rainy Day comes in two different sizes, 50 x 70 cm or 30 x 40 cm and is printed on high quality photo paper. If you are interested in a different size please contact me directly. I am soon adding some more prints there, please be patient :)
 
 

My new camera

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.

 

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 :)

My living room + H&M Home

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 :)

Silke Bonde Under Water collection

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.

Super chunky wool blanket from Ohhio

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?
