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!
This modern Scandinavian style apartment is a display home in suburban part of Stockholm styled by talented Marie Ramse for JM. Sand tones and fray-green match perfectly and combined with lots of white give the space light and warm feel.
One of my favourite magazines Kinfolk has moved their headquarters from Portland to central Copenhagen and these photos above are from their new office and gallery designed by Danish studio Norm Architects.
With mixes Scandinavian and Japanese design, interior architecture is minimalist, harmonious with natural feel in accordance with Kinfolks credo of slow living. Wood together with warm sandy-tones creates home like environment that should be very comfortable to work in and is also welcoming and inviting to the guests. I am really happy with the current situation of working from home, but I wouldn’t mind having an office space like that.

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 :)
I always find it very hard to post something new if the previous update here has been so long time ago.. I don’t know where this month went so fast, maybe I was too busy with real interior projects and therefore had less time to post on the blog.
Anyway, this moody and dark and stylish place found in this month’s Residence broke the silence here. It’s a new apartment of Swedish super-stylist Lotta Agaton who’s work is a constant inspiration for me. Her previous apartment, which I shared here, was decorated in much lighter colours. The shift from lighter tones to darker shades is really dominant in Scandinavian style right now and this place is an extreme example of it.
This dream house is located near Malmö, Sweden and it looks rather perfect to me if you ask.
Home owners wanted to create a calm oasis surrounded by nature giving the feeling of inner peace and harmony. Color scheme is calm and neutral and material choices are natural: massive wooden doors and built-in storage, plastered walls, polished terrazzo floors, linen textiles. Big windows blur the boundaries between inside and outside and help interior to look bigger.
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.
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.
