My Dream Home


I’ve become slightly hooked on all these TV programs where people build their own houses, redecorate their houses, try to find houses to buy, renovate their houses and so on – you get the idea. There’s so many of these programs here in the UK! I’ve even started playing with the thought of one day building my own home (who would’ve thought?) , just so I can make it look exactly like I want. A girl can always dream 🙂

I’m not a massive Pinterest user, but do have to say that it is a very inspirational place and can be useful if you’re e.g.  trying to figure out how you want to decorate your living room, what kind of new shoes you should buy or what you should cook for your dinner guests.

I’ve put together a board with photos of spaces and decor I really like. Here’s a few.

What do you think? I clearly seem to have a thing for modern penthouses with splashes of colour and a rustic, industrial or bohemian twist to it all. There’s also a lot of white, must be my inner Scandinavian! (Light has always been very important to me – I was really struggling when living in a basement flat in London and couldn’t imagine living in a dark flat/house any more.)  I want big windows and a lot of natural light, without compromising on cosiness. One day!

If you want to get inspired, do check out Pinterest and start creating your own dream home 🙂

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!

    Intressant att se din smak. Och ja, snygga bilder. Jag undrade först om det var foton
    från ert hem!

    Inredningsmodet tycks vara ganska internationellt, för man känner igen många drag från t.ex. Gloorian koti.

    T.ex. den där industrihallstrenden med tegelväggar, “rosoinen tyyli”.
