Dinner for Eight

Last Saturday we had a few friends over for dinner. This group has been very difficult to get around the same table as no one ever seems to be in the same city or country – but we finally did it and we had a blast! I didn’t think it was going to be THAT much work cooking for 8 people, but somehow we didn’t manage to get our starter on the table until closer to 10pm! I have a lot more respect for the people that go on Come dine with me and fail now haha.

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

lifestory edinburgh shop

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!
