my scandinavian home

A delightful home in Finland

Monday, 31 August 2015

Hello Monday! I hope you had a fab weekend? My alarm went off at 5.30am this morning - not ideal but you know what they say about the early bird....and it certainly rings true this morning. This is the beautiful Finnish home of Riika Kantinkoski - photographer, artist, stylist and blogger extraordinaire.  Think light wood floors, soft greys, Scandinavian design pieces and impeccable Finnish style. Oh how I'd love to start my week in this home, how about you?!

Honestly, Riika's home is like a breath of fresh air...it's just so effortlessly serene!

I love the idea of grouping different shaped vases with flowers from the garden, so simple yet so pretty (more indoor garden ideas here).

Items I know and love (in order of appearance): String shelves, aquarelle print (by Riika), Hay about a chair. SINNERLIG table lamp, macrame wall hanging (by Riika). SINNERLIG stool. Linen bedding.

You can keep up to date with Riika's latest home updates, projects and designs on her beautiful blog Weekday Carnival.

More oh so beautiful Finnish homes here, here and here.

Have a wonderful start to the week!

PS so pleased to be invited to be a part of luxury online home store Amara's 63 beautiful kitchen ideas piece. And thrilled to be nominated for 'Best European Interiors Blog' in the Amara Interior Blog Awards. My voting page is here. Exciting!


Bold and beautiful wall murals by Anewall

Sunday, 30 August 2015

Hello there! I don't often post on weekends but after our discussion around Karen's home on Friday, I had to stop by and tell you about Anewall. Based in Vancouver, Canada, Anewall prints vintage art, iluustrations and photography and specialise in large prints including wall murals that are printed in house. I absolutely love their self adhesive banana leaf wallpaper, watercolour mural, and map of vancouver. All I need to do now is clear a large wall....





All photos: Anewall

I see they also offer a customised service - meaning you can turn your own photos, favourite quotes, or personal design into a wall decal. Oooo, interesting.

I was in a Danish home recently and they had a black and white wall mural of their three boys wading out to see - it was so personal and such a lovely way to bring a seascape inside, I've been thinking about it ever since.

Do you have a photo or design in mind?

The amazing guys at Anewall sponsored me to write this post - and for me it was a no brainer since I absolutely love what these guys are doing and really wanted to share their work with you! Thank you for supporting my sponsors who make this blog happen. 

Happy weekend!
