A calm and elegant Finnish home

Good morning! How are you today? I'm curious - do you go through phases of loving certain countries? Right now I'm having a real Finland moment (piqued by my trip to Helsinki and the Tammisaari/Ekenäs archipelago last year for The Scandinavian Home) - it's just such a great country: beautiful nature, lovely people, a fascinating culture and incredible design! Needless to say I get super excited when I come across a Finnish home - like this one. This monochrome space belongs to Maiju Lauren - the talented blogger behind Lagerma. Maiju has recently put her beautiful home on the market and invited Riikka Katinkoski of Weekday Carnival to capture it (see Rikka's home here). Hurrah!

Oh so calm and elegant! I love how all the different textures add warmth and interest.

What do you love most about this home?

Get the look: dining room - Thonet chair, House Doctor molecular light is similar, source a beni ourain rug here. sitting room - lampe gras wall light, The Poster Club sells similar photo art. Childrens room: Sebra kili convertible bed.

See more fab Finnish homes here!

Have a great day!

PS Sorry the posts have been a little later on in the day recently - I blame it on my sports injury and what I thought was a torn muscle in my calf turned out to be half my achilles tendon snapped off - eeeeeeeeeek! I now have a special boot I have to wear night and day for six weeks! Have you ever done anything similar?


  1. I hope that everything will go well. Wish you the best!!

    I love the division of space in the appartment. Everything look very fluid. Have a beautiful day!

    1. Thank you Clara! Yes - such a great observation, the fluidity is perfect in this space.

  2. Your posts are still on time for me for my morning coffee. :) and thank you for them,I always enjoy the neat interiors you show us.

    For six weeks...God, that's a long time engagement with that boot. :( How did you injure your foot? Wish you a speedier and full recovery so you can enjoy summer!!

    1. Happy to hear there making your morning coffee break still and thank you for your kind words. Six weeks feels like a veeery long time right now - I was playing 'netball' - I should have known better, from now on I shall stick to the pub! x

  3. Oh, ouch. I just saw the Wikipedia page about that type of injury and it looks painful. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achilles_tendon_rupture

    Best of luck with your recovery. Take it easy!

    I once sprained an ankle, and had to use crutches and a special boot for weeks. The only positive was that I got to use the elevator/lift at school (this was way back in high school!).

    1. I have to say, it's been a pretty painful experience. I know what you mean, every cloud has a silver lining and I am enjoying having my coffees delivered to the chaise longues!
