As a contrast to the previous post of black kitchen, here is one gorgeous apartment in Gothenburg with all white kitchen. Typing it while the low and bright spring sun is pouring in from my windows I can only imagine how bright this space feels when the sun is shining – white walls, white cabinets, white painted floors and big windows! Maybe not the most practical choices for everyday life, but definitely looks fabulous on the photos. This apartment has a nice round built-in office corner with a iconic Jacobsen Series 7 swivel chair and Bestlite table lamp.

Black kitchen with a view

March 16, 2015


black kitchen with big windows


Love that black minimalist kitchen with huge windows. The great view from the windows and green plants on the kitchen counter diminish the border between outdoors and indoors. The window seat in the corner and the fireplace are also nice additions in this kitchen space.

Currently in our living room

String shelf styling inspiration from Decordots blog-3

A few days ago I had time to rearrange the String shelf in our living room and I thought it was a good time to document how our sofa corner currently looks like. I don’t know if it’s because this shelf is almost the only surface in the living room our little one can’t reach, but it tends to clutter up very quickly…

As I thought, the new print from One Must Dash, which was in our bedroom a few weeks ago looks gorgeous also on the living room wall. I plan to add some more prints above the sofa as well to create a picture wall, but knowing myself it will take some time to choose the pieces to display and decide the layout.


P.S. I tend to get a lot of questions about our wall shelving unit through my Instagram account, so for those of you wondering the same thing right now – it’s the String shelf and I got mine from Finnish Design Shop. There are still some days left to the end of their campaign where they offer -15% off from all white String shelving units. I’m tempted to extend our shelf to the floor, but at the same time I know that this free space under the shelf is a really good spot for an occasional side table or stack of IKEA stools as seen on the photos above.

Calligrapher Ylva Skarp’s home

Some really nice shots from the home of Swedish calligrapher Ylva Skarp. This place is a perfect mix of different styles (Scandinavian, rustic, industrial, modern), textures and materials, brought beautifully together by monochrome color palette of black, white and grey with lots of raw wood. What makes this home really personal is her artwork that can be seen throughout the interior. For me it’s a perfect example of how to incorporate lots of art into the decor without it feeling too much.

If you want to see how her home looked like two years ago during Christmas time take a look here.

Love everything about these photos styled by Gitte Christensen and captured by Pia Winther. Light, colours, mood, styling – everything is perfect! And of course this good looking Hario V60 ceramic coffee dripper with glass coffee server and stylish Hario Buono kettle currently seen on so many interior and lifestyle photos (and no wonder, it does look pretty!).

Now take some time and enjoy your slow coffee moment… :)

This is a Sato new built apartment in Helsinki, styled by Susanna Vento together with Pinja Forsman ja Carolinavd. After seeing the glimpses of this apartment via Susanna’s Instagram feed I was looking forward to see the final result and I didn’t have to disappoint! Susanna’s minimal and warm style shines through in every room. She has selected some really nice designer furniture pieces and accessories for this project. To track them down there is a complete list on her website, but as I really loved putting together the ‘get the look’ collage for yesterday’s post, I selected some of my favorite pieces also from this apartment.

This apartment has been seen here and there in the recent days, but since I like how light and soft the combination of white, wood, neutrals and soft pastels feels, I had to share it also. To add something new to it I created a little get-the-look list too.

A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose from One Must Dash

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.
