Saturday inspiration

What we have been looking at recently:

Sometimes the apartment tours over at Apartment Therapy are so amazing that I just keep on returning to them over and over. This is a good example of one of those tours that just keeps on captivating. I love that shelf.


Weekend with the fleas

We made a trip  to the big indoors flea market in Vallila/Helsinki yesterday. There we found a nice little red alarm clock that looks great on our shelf. It’s cute as hell, but sadly the incredible noise it makes when winded up makes it merely something pretty to look at (instead of a usable device to tell time). For the moment it has a designated place INSIDE our drawer! There it can unwind itself in peace, slowly returning to it’s silent existence forever at five o’clock.

Recycled literature

How great are not books? I made this prototype a while ago, and it works great! Sure, the screws are a bit rude, but hey it was my first go at it. I love the fact that you can take whatever, and make it into something totally else. This particular piece of literature is now waiting to hold our keys in the entrance.

Blik wall decals

Wall decals have become hugely popular lately. Here is our latest addition from BLIK, the always seasonal Space Invaders. The cool thing with these is the painless removal option if you ever would get tired with them. Who wouldn’t love to see quirky aliens when they wake up?

The first, and so tasty, coffee out on the balcony

Coffee in the balcony

The first coffee of the year outside on the balcony. It was fantastic fantastic fantastic!! The country is still covered with deep white snow, but it’s amazing what a bit of sunlight can do to one after the loooong dark winter! Thanks to the glassed balcony you can enjoy that terrace feeling even in colder times.

Winter in Finland

At times it is nice, but thank squirrel that it is almost over. This uberwinter has been white and full of light, but oh so cold oh so cold.

One happy boy felt in the ice!
