Daniel Wellington watch + a special discount

Beautiful and minimalist Daniel Wellington watch

Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady Silver watch
I received my Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady watch a few weeks ago and I’m loving it more and more each day! I had admired its minimalist and classic design already for some time and now I’m more than happy to have it! I like that it’s so versatile – the watch fits perfectly with casual outfit I wear most of the days, but looks so good also on more elegant occasions. And I have to admit that in addition to looking good on wrist, it’s quite perfect also on desk or bedside table or wherever you put it. Or what do you think? :)

If you have had this watch in wish list or just fell in love with it now, there is some good news for you: Daniel Wellington is offering 15% off of your order in their store if you use code DECORDOTS at checkout (valid until April 30).

We recently changed the location of our workspace corner and it’s not under the sloped ceiling any more. That means we also have a room for a proper table lamp on the desk. The only problem is that it’s so hard to choose – there are many really nice work lamps out there! Above are some nice examples of inspiring Scandinavian style workspaces each with a beautiful table lamp. And below you’ll find some of my favourites.

Happy Easter!

Scandinavian style Easter inspiration


This year the Easter came so quickly and to be honest I haven’t prepared for the holidays that much … I just enjoy this extra time when family is together and take it easy and slow. Today morning we had a very nice walk in our home town’s empty streets and we arrived home with a bunch of beautiful branches (seen on the photo above), some fresh cake from local bakery store and some organic oranges. Right now I’m enjoying a cup of tea and delicious cake while our little one is taking his nap :)

Wishing you all Happy Easter!

March is gone and April is here! Looking outside it feels more like February, but at least there is hope that sunnier and warmer spring days can’t be far away anymore. Little bit patience and it will be all here! Until then enjoy these cozy moments inside with hot drinks, warm blankets, good read and some chocolate :)

Easter inspiration from IKEA

Scandinavian Easter inspiration from IKEA


This week is an Easter week and that else would suit better to start it as a beautiful Scandinavian style Easter inspiration from IKEA. Branches with little green buds are decorated with eggs, feathers, photos and paper wheels, all in neutral colour palette, simple and beautiful.

Reminder: depends where you live, but for those living in areas with colder climate these are the last days to bring some branches indoors to give them plenty of time to grow little green buds or leaves for Easter weekend :)

Blue trend in home decor | Blue tableware

March 25, 2015

Blue is a real big trend in interior design right now and tableware is no exception. We can see deep indigo tones and inky shades of blue both as patterns and as a solid colours on dinnerware from various brands. Updating your tableware collection with only just some pieces of new ceramics is a easy and affordable way to bring blue trend also to your kitchen and dining room. Here are some of my finds.
Broste Copenhagen tableware. Blue trend

Beautiful tableware Nordic Sea from Broste Copenhagen. It’s soft shades of greyish blue with organic patterns and texture are just divine!


Feeling for Serax tableware Blue trend in tableware - Feeling for Serax


Feeling for Serax – a new set of tableware from Serax SS15 collection.


Rörstrand ceramics designed by Monica Förster

Rörstrand Carisma collection

Two of my favourite series of blue themed tableware from one of the most famous Swedish porcelain manufacturers Röstrand  – Inblue (above) and Carisma.


Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted tableware

Blue trend in tableware. Blue Fluted Mega from Royal Copenhagen

Royal Copenhagen definitely has some gorgeous blue dinnerware, for example elegant matte glaze Blue Fluted series (above) and Blue Fluted Mega with gorgeous blue floral pattern.


Below are some of my picks among blue tableware.

Ideas for a small Scandinavian style apartment

This little 36m2 one room (+ kitchen) apartment in Stockholm is a perfect example of how to fit living room, bedroom and home office into one room without the result looking too crowded. The key here is to keep consistent style and colour palette in all zones of the room, so that the entire space feels harmonious, cozy and stylish. There is also a built-in wardrobe in this apartment that helps to keep all things organised so that it would be easier to keep the clutter away – really important with such a small living. Decorated with a clever mix of IKEA finds and designer pieces (for example white Menu Afteroom chair in office corner and Hay DLM coffee table), this little apartment is a beautiful representation of modern Scandinavian style.

All white living

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.
