My New Moroccan Pouffe from Bohemia Design

Sorry guys, another post about interior design stuff coming up! (And more tips on where to shop beautiful handcrafted pieces here in Edinburgh and online…) As you might know I’m a huge fan of Nordic design – which possibly has something (or a lot) to do with my “Finnishness”. I don’t know if it was my late grandmother’s oriental rug that now adorns our living room floor, but I find the combination of modern, sleek Scandi vibes and colourful, expressive Middle Eastern designs quite attractive. Hence I naturally went and bought a Moroccan pouffe!

Life Story – One of My Favourite Edinburgh Shops

I’ve been meaning to do a blog post about this lovely shop at the bottom of Broughton Street for ages – but it actually makes more sense to do it now, in the midst of my ‘decorating our new home’-frenzy! Life Story is a lifestyle shop that sells lots of cool stuff you NEED for your home by several Scandinavian and Scandi-inspired designers. There is no end to the Scandi-boom!

Restoration Yard & the Best Shop Ever

Last Saturday Matthew’s sister picked us up in the morning and we headed to the 1000-acre big Dalkeith Country Park for a nice day out in the countryside. I was also looking forward to exploring the newly opened Restoration Yard – a new retail, food, drink and wellbeing space in the park’s old stableyard. I had heard good things about the shop but was still amazed by how nice it was (and the prices weren’t too bad either). It was so nice that I took around a million photos!

Stress Less With Ekornes

Last week I visited the Royal Highland Show for the first time, which was such a great day out for the whole family. I’ll be blogging more about that later as I have around a million photos to share from the day! Anyway, at the show I was invited to meet with a representative for Norwegian Ekornes to learn more about what comfort really is about – and as I’m always keen to endorse the Nordics I just couldn’t say no.

Art & Vintage in Edinburgh

The other week we were viewing a flat in Leith (yes, we’re thinking about buying again…) and since we were in the area I wanted to visit a cafe/vintage shop/art gallery on Lyne Street in Abbeyhill that I was clued in on through Instagram. As soon as we stepped inside I took a liking to the place and decided I want to do a blog post to support the shop. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera, so photos aren’t great I’m afraid…

Rock House InstaMeet

I’ve mentioned that I had a fun work event I had to attend when my parents were visiting, and I’ve finally managed to put together a blog post about it – with quite a few photos so you’ve been warned…Couldn’t help myself as the venue, Rock House in the photo above, is just too stunning! 

My New Job

Posted on

I’ve now been a working mum for a full week, which actually means just two days per week as I’m employed part-time. Although to be honest I’ve been working a lot more than that in order to get on top of everything – I’m sure you know what it’s like with a new job! 

DIY Bar Stool Project

A while back I mentioned my little do-it-yourself project that I would share with you if it turned out ok – and since it actually turned out better than I was expecting I proudly present my old-new teal blue bar stool 🙂
