my scandinavian home: A Finnish space fit for a superhero

A Finnish space fit for a superhero

Monday, 6 October 2014

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend? Last week I went out for a drink with Peggy of wonderful children's blog Paul & Paula and it got me thinking how long ago I showed fabulous children's space inspiration.The monochrome and wood 'superhero' children's bedroom and playroom have been created by Finnish blogger Sini for her little boy and girl. Sini has personalised many of the items in the two rooms which just goes to show what you can do with a little DIY. For example I love the way she has jazzed up a white STUVA cupboard with half moon stickers and a MALM chest of drawers with black rain drops. And how cute is the 'superhero sleeping' garland?!

A quick round up of items I know and love:  TUVBRÄCKA black and white striped bedding, STRING shelving, MUUTO dots coat hook, Ferm Living wire basket. Man in the moon print, personalised letters garland, lego storage. Mini rain drop stickers and other fab stickers by Ferm Living. Pear shaped wooden play house from Rock & Pebble. The curtain fabric is Kulkue by Finnish brand Marimekko.

I love this very simple yet extremely clever half moon DIY project too.

What a perfect space for a super hero don't you think?!

PS for children's clothes my favourite shops are Smallable (always a favourite for Scandinavian designer brands) and Polpettine for absolutely beautiful girls clothes. Do you have any favourite stores?

Have a lovely start to the week!

  4. The space is gorgeous even if I think it's a little too cluttered.
    Like a feng shui architect as I am, I observe the bed position.
    Sleeping is one of the most importan activity for a well-being, it's important for people in general but almost for kids. When a bed is under the pitched roof, the Qi - the vital energy that permeates and shapes everything, all things and being - is compressed and tend to stagnate, creating a bad feng shui. Qi must flow freely. That position is one of the worst to being choosen for babies whom Qi is - and must be - particularly open to expansivity. Feng shui associates the Qi of the children to the "Tree" (Wood) element.
    As you imagine, a tree grow expanding in all the directions: up, down and side by side so it shouldn't be blocked by an obstacle, as the roof represents.
    Each people energy's flows outside the body shaping an aura that in that case is compressed hindering an optimal growth of the child.

    I hope to be able to explain; I'm italian and my English is absolutely not perfect.

    Regards.
