Using leather straps in decorating is a big trend at the moment: you can see those as hangers, handles, drawer pulls or around piles of magazines. Those cool leather hangers on the photos above are designed by Mathilda Clahr. Hangers are handmade from organically tanned high quality leather in Sweden. Available in three different tones: black, dark brown and light brown. Can be used for many different purposes: for magazines as on the photos above, for scarves in an entry, for tea towels in a kitchen or towels in a bathroom to name just a few possibilities!

A Scandinavian home with a character

April 9, 2014

living room with Barcelona chair, Eames side table, playtype poster and DIY belt mirror Scandinavian living room. Hay tray table, Playtype posters, IKEA sofa, rug, floor lamp Scandinavian living room with dark wooden floor leather belt as curtain holder kitchen. white square tiles, black grout white Scandinavian kitchen with industrial touch open space kitchen and dining. Thinet chairs office corner. IKEA Gällö shelf, flea market industrial chair and Panton Flowerpot lamp Scandinavian workspace with industrial touch Bedroom. Grey wall, Muuto Dots details. Hay for hanging jewelry


Hello Wednesday! Where did Tuesday and Monday go so fast?!

This charming renovated Scandinavian home with a hint of industrial feeling is my today’s favorite. Decorated with IKEA pieces, flea market finds and designer items, it has a welcoming and lived in feeling. The office corner of this home has caught my eye before – I love the styling of the IKEA Gällö shelf and the space below it! And this grey wall in the bedroom reminds me again that maybe I should try grey also in my bedroom… The owners of this house say that at the beginning they were afraid to chose wrong colors and materials, but now they look at their home like it was their playground and a place for experimenting. Wise words, that I should remind myself when thinking too long about changes in my home!

Shades of blue on the walls

It seems that colorful accent walls are becoming more popular this spring, even in otherwise monochrome Scandinavian homes. These examples here are from two of the blogs I regularly follow, Stylizimo and Designlykke. Nina and Henriette have both chosen lovely shades of blue (fresh green blue or more subtle greyish blue) to bring some color to their homes. On the last four pictures actually the same color (“Lofoten”)  is used although it looks quite different – great example of how different lightning can change the final outcome, so it may not be an easy task to find the perfect shade for your home!

Today I’m happy to show you the new look of my blog! I had long thought about it and finally I did it!

I don’t know how about you, but I was quite tired of my old design and wanted something more minimalist, light and fresh to better reflect my aesthetics. First I wanted to do the whole redesign myself, but I had to be realistic and admit that I don’t have time for that… Fortunately, I got a lovely theme from Blogmilk and after playing a little bit with CSS I can proudly present it today :) There are still minor things to do (like creating some structure of post categories… ), but it’s quite ready now!

So what do you think? I’d really really like to know!

Welcome weekend!

March 28, 2014


I’m so thankful that it’s Friday and we have two relaxing days ahead!

P.S If you get an error ‘in maintenance mode’ when trying to visit the blog it’s because I’m updating the blog design a little bit. I hope to be ready for the next week, but we’ll see how it goes :)

Have a great weekend!

Kuu pendant and great bedroom styling

Black Kuu pendant in living room

Simple and lovely new pendant from One Nordic Furniture Company. It’s name Kuu means Moon in Estonian and there is definitely some similarities between this lamp and a beautiful full moon! Available also in white.
