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.

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.

I have written about my love for String shelving system before, but I think that it’s a topic where you can’t have inspiration overdose as these shelves are really highly customisable and can be used in so many different ways.

I’m really happy with my little String shelf in the living room and sometimes play with the idea of adding some units to it. Unfortunately we don’t have enough spare room in our living room… But those of you who have and who have been dreaming about these shelves there is a good news from Finnish Design Shop: they offer -15% discount from all white String system units until 14 March! Quite tempting, isn’t it? :)

Love this perfect mix of industrial style and vintage items in the home of German photographer Petra Reger seen on Vosgesparis today. Calm monochrome colour palette with an addition of some neutrals and wood binds everything together so well. Again a good example of a colourless home feeling so cozy and personal.

Hop over here to read more about this home together with some resources where something is from.

Kitchen inspiration | White tiles + black grout

There’s something charming in the combination of white tiles and black grout used in these kitchens. It gives the kitchen instantly more graphic and industrial look. Goes well with both white kitchen cabinets and also with black ones. Definitely a bit bolder choice than classic look with white tiles combined with white grout, but at least based on these examples it has paid off well!

Mrs. Mighetto new Into the Woods collection


As I wrote a week ago, I’m currently planning my little one’s big boy room and that means I’m especially tuned for kids room decorating ideas and great products for kids room. Some days ago I stumbled across Mrs. Mighetto’s new gorgeous collection Into the Woods, which will be launched on 14th of February, and now I’m so in love with these super-cute mythical characters!

Another news for today is that a great online shop THE POSTER CLUB (you can read more about them here) has launched THE POSTER CLUB Kids, a selection of cool, cute and beautiful kids posters. As with the rest of their selection it will be a mix of some well-know classics, some new stuff and some posters exclusively sold at their webshop.

My home | The kitchen island

February 4, 2015

I have shared some snapshots of my kitchen before in Instagram, but I think it’s the first time I show you my kitchen island here. So this is probably the right time to give you also a little bit background information about our kitchen.

As you can already see from the photos, our kitchen is quite small and it has a sloped ceiling. It’s an open kitchen – it’s in one end of elongated room with sloped ceilings (so it’s high in the center of the room, but quite low towards the ends). Not the ideal setting for a kitchen, but trust me, the version how it was planned when we first saw the project of our future apartment was even worse: the kitchen was in a separate room and it was only 8 square meters… not my idea of a dream kitchen either. Fortunately we bought our apartment in the state where it was possible to make changes in the project, so we moved the kitchen out from this tiny cubicle. The quite low sloped ceiling made planning of the kitchen more difficult and at the beginning we weren’t quite sure how to fit everything in. The kitchen island  was a good solution here and with that we have everything in frequent use in this part of the kitchen where the height of the ceiling is enough even for a taller person than me.

We have lived in our apartment for 4 years now and I can say that the choices we made when planning our kitchen were right as it’s really comfortable to cook in here and everything is within a good reach. I must admit that my visual taste has evolved over these years and there are things I’d to differently if I’d start fresh, but taken all together I’m pretty happy with our kitchen!
