my scandinavian home: A beautifully renovated Finnish cabin

A beautifully renovated Finnish cabin

Friday, 5 April 2013

Spring has sort of arrived in Scandinavia and summer cottages are starting to be prepped for weekend visits and the wonderful month of July. This newly renovated cottage in the Finnish archepelegoes belongs to the editor behind inspiring blog Time of the Aquarius, and her partner and three children. It really has been a labour of love through the winter (trust me, I've seen the 'before' pictures!) but the work they've done so far is simply stunning.








Time of the Aquarius

The cottage is about three hours from their home (by car and ferry) and they plan to spend their long summer days their with their three children. How idyllic! Do you have a summer cottage or a weekend retreat?

Before I shoot off for the weekend, I have an important announcement......

.....the Lucky winner of the fab ML Design industrial pendent light (drum roll please...) is Britta Högström. Mette will be in contact with you to organise delivery. Thank you to everyone who entered!

And here's my round-up of fab not-to-be-missed interior news from the web:

If there's one interior site you must visit this weekend it's this Tumblr - it made me laugh so much. Thanks for the tip Mariela!

If you love Finnish style (errr hello!) and a great make-over, check out Varpunen for a fab before and after.

I have a friend who has been talking about getting a new sofa for two years (not even an exaggeration, it could be longer). This uber cool list of top ten sofas is for you Ullis.

And finally, because we all love a home tour.....check out this East London home tour courtesy of Living Etc complete with beautiful Wishbone chairs. And a beautiful Scandinavian inspired Melbourne home.

I hopy you all have a wonderful weekend! See you Monday!

  9. I love the natural wood finish of your space. The use of white compliments the walls and showcases a truly unique appearance that's very pleasing from an aesthetic standpoint. Very nice furniture if I do say so myself!

  10. Everything looks so beautiful Nikki!!! Thanks for sharing!

    P.S - I am currently looking for submissions of people's best cupcake recipes with a picture, recipe and little profile on themselves to be part of a cookbook.

    Can you spread the word for me and if you are interested - submit one of your own?

    Best,

  17. This is really stunning, I love the open and bright spaciousness! It'll be great spending some calm, quality time there... But I can't believe they've managed to do all this with three children.:D

    1. Good point! I can't even empty the dishwasher with two children let alone renovate a home. Makes it all the more impressive!

  19. It looks so calm and serene - all that wood paneling is really stunning. I love how most of the colour comes from nature or natural materials. Very inspiring. x
