A Finnish home in striking charcoal tones

I love it when I receive an exciting e-mail. This time it was from designer Laura Seppänen sending over lovely pics from her latest interior design project. The client brief was to turn a two room apartment in Helsinki into a stylish, monochrome interior with the slightest hint of a hotel vibe. Laura added handmade and designer Finnish design pieces, and some fab prints to make the space come alive. The result is a pretty cool space with charcoal tones softened with warm wood. Let's take a tour..

I love the bedroom! Charcoal bedding is such a great way to channel the broody dark grey trend  (as seen in this home)- but without committing to painting walls. This charcoal linen bedding and throw are similar.

To furnish the home Laura has used items from Finnish brands Adea and Valanti. The prints (in order of appearance) are:  RK Design, Blur, Brooklyn Landmarks.If there's anything in particular you're wondering about give me a shout in the comment section below and I'll dig into it!

I love the last home Laura designed too. Two totally different styles, which do you prefer?

  2. Yes.. the mirror and the table beneath it!

  3. I'd love to know where the grey plant pot is from...and is it a place that would ship to Canada?!?

    1. I'm waiting to hear... but this one is similar and can be used both indoors and outdoors:

    2. what kind of plant is it?

  4. I love the sideboard table that's holding the grey platpot. Where can I get that?

    1. ditto. would like to know the manufacturer of the sideboard.

  5. I love the sideboard table that's holding the grey platpot. Where can I get that?
