A minimalist yet cosy Finnish home

Well hello there! This summer I visited Finland for the very first time, and what a beautiful country it is! Have you ever been? I particularly loved Helsinki and the Taamisari archipelago (where we photographed two beautiful homes for The Scandinavian Home). I realised I have so much more to discover and I can't wait to go back some day. In the meantime I'll be living vicariously through beautifully captured Finnish home tours! You can imagine how happy I was to receive a mail last week from Laura Seppänen Design Agency with Laura's latest project! Stina Mäntyniemi, head of Cosmopolitan Finland,was looking for a clean and monochrome interior - with one explicit request - it included a Bertoia Diamond lounge chair (I love her style!)! Using this as a brief, Laura has transformed the space into a bright and breezy two room apartment which is minimalist yet cosy. The space has been furnished with a wonderful blend of Scandinavian design classics, new Nordic brands and natural materials. Let's take a tour...

So lovely and fresh, don't you think?

Get the look from Stina's flat: kitchenware from Formverk, faucet by Nivito, vases, trays and candle holders from Cooee (same shop as the beautiful brass wreath in Elisabeth's home), all posters from The Poster Club, Eames chair, sheepskin throw, light box with changeable letters, Flos 265 lamp (over sofa), By lassen kubus 8 candleholder.

I've featured many of the homes Laura's designed in the passed including this delightful Helsinki penthouse (love the mix of old and new) and a one room apartment. There's also an entire archive dedicated to Finnish homes (including some idyllic summer cottages and cabins- don't miss these!).

Got to love Finnish style?!

Have a great start to the week!

PS It's the last day to enter the give-away to win not one but two beautiful vases from one of my favourite  Danish brands - Nordal. Go go go!


  1. Such a lovely home. And the kitchen chairs? Where to get them?

  2. We live near Tampere. Come and visit Tampere some day, if you have time and Turku is a town worth visiting, if you are interested to see old Finnish architecture and spaces.

    1. I would love to Terhi, I'm adding these to my list, thank you! X

  3. Don't you mean vicariously rather than precariously?

  4. I have an irresistible urge to go out and get something black.

  5. Beautiful home. Isn't it funny they put all the books on the shelves with their backs to the wall? I don't think I've ever seen someone doing it this way.

  6. I think that the wall with books is great idea.That home looks so peace and harmony!
