my scandinavian home

A monochrome home in Helsinki, Finland

Friday, 4 September 2015

Oh Friday how I've been waiting for you! Are you up to anything fun this weekend? I wish I could say I was doing something super exciting like heading to Finland - but actually I'll just be chilling with my family here in South Sweden. But that doesn't mean we can't visit Finland in spirit, right? This is the home of Elisa (aka Minä ja Morris), a media producer, her man and daughter Stella in the heart of Helsinki.  Elisa describes her style as 'a little bit of a mix of everything' and likes to combine Scandinavian minimalism with a touch of bohemian. Her favourite things about her home are the lovely light, space, location in the heart of town and the sauna (of course!). Let's take a tour....

What a cute bubba! May I just squish those gorgeous cheeks?!

Moving on to the home itself...have to say, I love that back wall and kitchen in matt black - it's so striking! Oh and that crate with wheels would make a perfect weekend DIY project, don't you think?

Some items I know and love: kitchen / dining - Eames wire chair, Artek golden bell lights, Marimekko Oiva tea cup, traditional espresso maker. Sitting room: Hay dot cushion in rose. Bedroom: Hay mega knit throw.

Is there anything you love in particular about this home?

Sending big love to Elisa for sending me these pics and letting us take a tour of her lovely Helsinki home (you can see more images over on instagram). Do you have any photos of your home or studio you would like to share? If so, drop me a mail!

Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

PS If I were to head to Finland I could imagine myself in this beautiful rustic cabin by the sea. What do you reckon - a good place to wile away a weekend? More Finnish homes here - scroll passed the first one.

A charming boho dairy in the Swedish countryside

Thursday, 3 September 2015

Do you ever feel like leading a simpler life in the country? I definitely do, especially when I look at homes like this. Johan and Rinas live in an old dairy outside Falkenberg on Sweden's west coast where they collect freshly laid eggs, forage for chanterelle and make homemade juice. 'Lis Mejeri' has been decorated using 'something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue' - including many things found around the house when they moved in. Johanna Bradford and Kristin Lagerqvist - were lucky enough to visit in person and took these lovely pictures. Let's take a peek...

Johanna Bradford / Kristin Lagerqvist  Lovely Life

This is definitely one to share with my family and say *guys, fancy living like this for a while?*....

Could you imagine living somewhere like this?

See more pics of the dairy here (and on their blog here). 

It reminds me a little of the beautiful Strömma Farmlodge. More boho homes not far from Lis Mejeri here.

Have a lovely day!

PS Malmö / Copenhagen friends Emily Katz popped me a note to say she is travelling from Portland, Oregon to Copenhagen to hold a modern macrame workshop this Saturday 5th September.  Thought you wouldn't want to miss it....
