fresh & white


Tuesday. Work and a couple appointments, meeting friends, cleaning home. It feels so fresh and white in here, with my new white sofa and pastel colored dishes. Baby blue, baby pink and white. Tomorrow it’s time for hairdresser! Finally I’m getting rid of the dry ends, and maybe it would be nice to cut side bangs… Now that it’s sunny and almost springlike, I feel like freshing up everything!

Tiistai. Töitä ja pari tapaamista, kavereiden näkemistä, kodin järjestelyä. Piristää aina kun saa jotain uutta kotiin, nyt sain koottua uuden sohvani ja rahini! Ja tykkään niin uusista astioistani: vaaleanpunaista, vaaleansinistä ja valkoista. Huomenna kampaajalle, leikkaamaan kuivahtaneet latvat pois ja ehkä vähän sivuotsista, jos uskallan… Oon kevätfiiliksissä, tekee mieli uudistaa kaikki!







What do you think of my new dishes? I’ll show my new sofa better later, and after tomorrow my new hair! ;)

Mitä pidätte mun uusista astioista? Näytän sohvasta parempaa kuvaa myöhemmin, ja ehkä jo huomenna uusista hiuksista!

    Hi there,
    The dishes are very cute, what brand are they? Im looking for sth simular here in denmark

    By the way, i think i see a trick on the couch.. Did you lay a blanket below the pillows? If yes that’s brilliant!!!

    • Jass says:

      For Finnish cutlery you should check out Illums Bolighus and Magasin in Copenhagen, they sell Iittala products ;)

    • marianna marianna says:

      They are from Iittala. And yes you saw right ;D I thought it’d be easier to wash the blanket, than the covers of the pillows, when it gets off-white :D Haha!

      Thank you!

    • marianna marianna says:

      Thank you Anna :) The dishes are from Iittala, Finnish design! My fav tea, hmm.. Probably chai tea or vanilla.


      • Anna says:

        Chai tea or vanilla is perfect. I love the chai latte from Starbucks. Too bad that you only have Starbucks at your airport in Helsinki. :( that’s the only thing I missed in Finland, haha.

    Beautiful pics”””!!!!!

  41. Simo says:

    I like your Nordic concept of interior, clear colors, the importance of pure light, fresh flowers … Here in Spain, people have a very baroque style, they often use dark colors or very bright even for the walls, it’s really interesting and surprising to see their homes full of horror vacui! I wait curiously for your new hairstyle, surely you’ll be pretty as always :)

  42. Sanni says:

    Ihanan värisiä noi astiat, söpöjä! Sun kämppä vaikuttaa tosi rauhalliselta ja ihanalta kun on paljon vaaleita värejä. Otatko joskus enemmän kuvia asunnostasi? :)
