Simple picture wall inspiration

Simple picture wall inspiration from Stil Inspiration

Simple and stunning picture wall and cozy sofa. from Stil Inspiration


This simple yet stunning picture wall caught my eye first via Pella Hedeby’s Instagram feed. Really simple layout of similar frames on the wall exposing your favourite photos from magazines or photo books. Great idea for anyone looking for gallery wall ideas!

And this cozy grey sofa with chunky knit pillows is also adorable.

New in: Monika Petersen Gold Apple print

This beautiful Gold Apple lino print from Monika Petersen has lived with us for some time now, but somehow it hasn’t got deserved exposure here on blog yet. I plan to hang it on the livingroom wall, but since I’m really bad at deciding the layout (actually it’s because I haven’t took time to decide) it has found a place on my bedroom drawer right now. It’s a really nice print with high quality and I’m more than happy with it! :)


Mix of old and new in a Copenhagen rooftop apartment

This lovely Scandinavian rooftop apartment feels really spacious, open and light. Big windows, skylights, white-painted walls, ceiling and beams together with pale wooden floors do the trick. I’m in love with the modern black kitchen with a kitchen island, it’s made of black MDF and it has holes in front panels instead of handles. The big old wooden dining table gives the monochrome space a warm touch. Bright red pendants adding a pop of color in this monochrome kitchen are Panton Flowerpot lamps, and the pendant over the dining table is a Semi pendant from Gubi.

Scandinavian apartment with industrial and mid-century modern touches

Scandinavian kitchen, industrial touch.

This week starts with an inspiring Scandinavian apartment with industrial, graphic and mid-century modern touches. I especially like the kitchen here: white subway tiles with black grout always get my special attention (more about this here) with simple stainless steel open shelves and IKEA Hektar pendant lamps fit in perfectly. Also, I love how the String pocket shelf with black side panels and walnut wood shelves repeats the combination of black, white and wood seen in dining corner on the the background.

Some things from this apartment (or similar) to get the look:

Tips how to decorate loggias

Loggia as a reading corner


Two loggias in a new built apartment decorated in a very nice way by Pella Hedeby and Marie Ramse. Since there isn’t much inspiration out there how to decorate and use loggia space efficiently I thought it is something I have to share. For those who are not familiar with the term loggia, it’s something like a balcony, but differently from a balcony, loggia is closed from the outside with glass panes that can be folded away. Really practical as everything you put there is protected from changing weather.

The first loggia was turned into an inspiring Scandinavian style workspace. I love the idea of the home office corner being separated from the rest of the room with big glass windows/doors – private enough, but also integrated with the rest of the apartment. I really like the look of this work space – gorgeous moodboard and nice details and furniture, for example Menu Afteroom chair, Hay Box Box desktop boxes, Pia Wallen Cross blanket and a print from 4living.

The second one is decorated as a relaxing reading nook with lots of green plants and a safari daybed – something I’d like to own myself if I had enough space for it in my apartment. The whole floor is covered with natural hemp rug to make the feel even cosier. Perfect spot for recharging with a good cup of coffee and magazines… a little oasis of simple pleasures :) Also, I like the way how the back of the art canvas have been used as decorative elements here – simple and original idea and it doesn’t cost much if you’d like to copy it in your home. You can find canvas from your local art supply stores or online even from Amazon!

So this was a little dose of inspiration for Friday and some tips how to use and decorate loggias. Have a good weekend!

Daniel Wellington watch + a special discount

April 7, 2015

Monochrome workspace styling

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).

Choosing a table lamp for a workspace

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.

Do you have a favorite desk lamp? Any recommendations?

Happy Easter!

April 3, 2015

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 :)
