If you’ve read my blog before you might know what a sucker I am for Nordic design and how happy I am to see all these Scandi shops popping up in Edinburgh. It’s a bit like hearing your language spoken on the street in a foreign country – it just gives you that feeling of belonging that we all crave to some extent.
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.
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…
During Lana’s and mine Finland visit we spent a day in Helsinki with a good friend, eating well and checking out the Design Museum. Having lived in Helsinki for most of my twenties the city will always have a special place in my heart and I’m hoping I’ll get to live there again one day – or at least so close that I can visit often!
A must visit for everyone who’re thinking about buying or building a house, who’re interested in interior design or curious about the housing trends is the Asuntomessut Housing Fair 2015. The fair is organised every year in different locations, and the houses and flats built there are actually for sale and the whole area will become a new neighbourhood.
I love plants and think they look nice and freshen up any room, but I’ve never really taken the time to learn how to look after them. Still our plants seem to thrive for some reason – although most of them are in their original small pots and don’t receive any TLC apart from water once a week or less. Maybe it’s our bright flat that is the secret behind it all?
