A rainy day in Helsinki today
and I've created myself a cosy nook on the sofa,
jotting down some holiday plans in my moleskine
& eyeing up some decor inspiration.

And here's a home that just grabbed me -
all soft and rugged,
 and designed by the owner duo 

It makes me happy when you stop by,
sending you smiles.

    I live in Iceland and we are still waiting for the summer, but it is not raining at this moment, but to cold for this time of year. so a warm and cosy home like this is a dream.

  10. gorgeous neutral comfy home...x

  11. Thank you all for cheering me up with your lovely messages!
    Yes, such a soothing, comforting home
    to curl up in on a rainy day
    (or any other type of day, I'm sure :) ).

    And I love that all this 'back-to-basic's type of decor
    seems to be at the forefront a great deal these days
    - a far cry from having to have the latest gimmicks
    or designer chairs or whatever it may be...
    Just pared-down, loved, found & cherished.

    Wishing you all a good Sunday ahead, x

  12. Hi Rebecca. This is a lovely home. Each time I see neutral creamy shades like this I want to trow everything out of my home and start again. Isn't that the way it always is? Each room and vignette has something special to it. I particularly love the wallpaper in the bathroom. Hmm, wonder is it would work in my Craftsman cottage. Wonder if I could paint it! :)

  13. glorious! and now i must rush over to eBay in desperation after a glimpse of those little English crocks lined up. of course, i already have plenty! but mine are stamped with 'marmalade!' surely i need the more minimal variety, yes?

    hugs to you.


  14. I love the table in the first image. The rest spectacular.

  16. So lovely! How did you do the walls? Are they painted? Papered? I love the cozy vibe they lend.

    1. Dear Carrie,

      Thanks for leaving a comment!
      Unfortunately this home isn't mine at all,
      but the pics come via I gigi general store in the U.K.,
      you'll find the link in the opening paragraph.
      I'd love to know what that wall finish is myself.... x


It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
