my scandinavian home: A fab black and white Helsinki home

A fab black and white Helsinki home

Tuesday, 9 July 2013

This is the uber cool monochrome home of Maiju the blogger behind A Plateful of Love and her family in Helsinki, Finland. The apartment looks incredibly calm and relaxed, and of course there's no denying how cute the smiley baby peeping out of the cot is!

As you know, I'm a big fan of monochrome. It's not easy to get the balance right and Maiju has nailed it with a lovely warm feel.

What's your take on monochrome?

PS must mention Nest have got a fab sale on with 70% off clearance and ex display items and up to 25% off selected brands. They're also offering free worldwide delivery for brands that are not part of the sale, we like! My picks: Tom Dixon etch tea light holder, Kartell Componibili Round Storage, and the Hay dot cushion.

Have a lovely day!

  3. I can look cold, but this place certainly doesn't. I think the grays and patterns help.

  10. Oh I love monochrome! And this home is one of those "warm" monochrome spaces I really adore! Kitchen and the big dining table are my favs.

  11. Oh what a lovely post! I simply adore the 'brick' splashback in the kitchen. Very similar to our splashback we recently did in our renovation. http://billiemakesahome.info/?tag=kitchen

    1. I am not sure unfortunately - perhaps someone else can help or you could try writing to Maiju?....or fun DIY project perhaps if you're feeling crafty?
