This two-room apartment in Finland Helsinki has a clean and fresh Scandinavian style with a hint of romantic vibes. Some vintage items together with newer Scandinavian design creates cozy feeling,  the use of soft wooden tones and graphic patterns on the fabrics makes the interior playful and lively. Residents love for blue color is clearly seen throughout the whole apartment.

Beautiful bedside

January 25, 2016

bedside styling inspiration

I know it’s a second post about bedroom in a row (which may indicate that I need a little more sleep…), but I can’t help myself. Love this bedside styling I found today – black and white and neutral color scheme with beautiful details. This kind of box shelf is a great alternative for traditional bedside tables when you don’t have room for them or just want something different.

A few photos from my bedroom some days ago. Love the light coming in from the window, snow outside makes it really beautiful.

Have a relaxing and cozy weekend!


Scandinavian minimalism by Annaleena

Minimalist Scandinavian living room of Annaleena Leino Karlsson

modern and minimalist living room of Annaleena Leino Karlsson


I have enjoyed following Annaleena Leino Karlsson on Instagram for a long time and from the moment she told about building the new house I knew that it will be a stunner. And I didn’t have to disappoint – today she posted first photos of her new home on her blog and of course I had to share those. Scandinavian minimalism in its perfection! Now I’m impatiently waiting the see the other rooms in this house! Sneak peeks can be seen on her Instagram feed.

Contrasting minimalist kitchen cabinets

minimalist dark wooden kitchen

black kitchen cabinets in white interior


These minimalist dark wooden kitchen cabinets create beautiful contrast in this otherwise white kitchen. Large windows let in plenty of daylight which is reflected on white walls and light wooden floor so that the dark cabinetry doesn’t feel too heavy in this interior.

It’s no secret that I admire Lotta Agaton’s styling and I’m really excited if something new is coming up from her. This time it’s her work for String Furniture 2016 catalogue. Perfect!

And it seems from the photos that there are little lovely containers to hang on your String side panels soon coming out – perfect for storing little knick knacks if you happen to have a String shelf in your kitchen, workspace or bathroom!

Happy new week! We are having some really cold weather here – after warm and black Christmas last week almost every morning greeted us with temperatures below -20 degrees. Today temperatures are finally little higher, but quite strong wind makes being outside still not very pleasant. On the days like this I wish our apartment had a fireplace or stove like this beautiful monochrome Swedish apartment featured on today’s post. Styled by talented Sarah Widman and Elin Kicken this apartment decorated in monochrome and natural materials has this vibe I like about minimalist Scandinavian homes.

NORR11 is a young Scandinavian design and lifestyle brand offering timeless high quality furniture pieces and home accessories. Founded in 2011 as a German-Danish start up their furniture and lamps are clearly characterized by modern Scandinavian design, but at the same time include classical Bauhaus elements. By contrast, the shapes and materials of NORR11 accessories have Asian roots and as such add some color and dynamics to their collection. The mix of 3 different styles makes NORR11 products really unique.

NORR11 furniture and home accessories are available exclusively online and shipping is free of charge! For inspiration visit their website or one of their showrooms.
