3 from Ikea



I had been planning to put a mirror above my bed headboard for so long, now finally I got one! White, really neutral and nice. The sheets and small pillows are gifted from Balmuir, and the headboard is from Ellos.

Olin suunnitellut peiliä sängynpäätyni ylle jo ikuisuuden, vihdoin se siellä on! Valkoinen, neutraali, juuri sisustukseen sopiva. Lakanat ja pikkutyynynpäälliset saatu Balmuirilta, sängynpääty on Elloksesta.



This utility cart has been such a good thing to have near my front door. On the top I keep my keys, wallet all essentials, in the middle my camera stuff and my camera (which I’m using for this picture haha) and on the lower basket some most used scarves.

Tämä tarjoiluvaunu toimii mulla loistavasti eteisessä. Yläkorissa säilytän avaimia, lompakkoa, kaikkea mitä aina lähtiessä otan mukaan, keskikorissa käytetyimpiä kamerajuttuja, alakorissa käytetyimpiä huiveja. Mun huivihylly on ehkä maailman epäkäytännöllisin, horjuvia pinoja vain katonrajassa, joten tää helpotti vähän lähtöjä.



And this wire basket I keep next to my table where I work and do things on my laptop when I’m home. There I keep notebooks, pencils, agenda, all kind of papers and bills.

Korissa ruokapöytäni vieressä (missä yleensä teen kotona töitä tai olen koneella) on muistivihkoja, kalenteri, kyniä, papereita ja laskuja.

There’s such a lovely sunny weather outside, just ate my breakfast croissants and next I’ll go for a long walk. And have a Saturday that will feel like Saturday. Have a lovely weekend all! x

Juuri nyt niin ihana ilma ulkona, että pakko lähteä pitkälle kävelylle ja imeä tuota aurinkoa vaikka varastoonkin. Croissantteja aamiaiseksi, treeninä ulkokävelyitä, ja illan isoin ohjelma vain ruoanlaitto ja tv-ohjelmat. Tänään vietän lauantaita joka tuntuu oikeasti lauantailta. Ihanaa viikonloppua! x

    I really love that mirror above yor bed! Wish I could do that too but me bed is next to a window so no space for a mirror! I was wondering are you not worried about Minnie destroying your scarfs that you keep at the bottom shelf?? Have a lovely Saturday!

    With Love,

      I thought that at first and decided to give it a try, and she haven’t even touched the whole utility cart, not that I know of! :D Thank you Bri! x

    You have such a pretty and girly home! Love the new mirror above your bed’s headboard, it looks fantastic!

    Hi Marianna,

    I can’t say how much I love this bedroom! Few questions before I run to copy the whole thing:

    1. I have the same mirror and thought about putting it above the bed, but I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to see myself in the mirror and that it would be too high. You think it’s ok? I guess it helps make the room bigger.

    2. Clothes hanger: I see it so often and I do like it, but practical question: What about dust? In Copenhagen, I fight with a lot of dust that sits everywhere! (I have the string lights though, good start!)

    3. I would love to order same desk and chair! Is there any case you could share which products they are? (Unless you did and I missed it!) I want to make one for my mum as a surprise too! :)

    Enjoy your room! Looks great!

    • Marianna Marianna says:

      Thanks so much! :)

      1. I thought the idea with the mirror would be to make the space bigger, so I haven’t really paid attention if I even show myself in the mirror, but it’s not that high so I guess so.

      2. I haven’t even thought about that either! So haven’t been a problem :)

      3. The drawer is called “Alex” and the other stand I can’t remember the name right now but Ikea too. The glass on top is custom-made.

      Thank you again! x

  9. Love the mirror over the bed! Looks so nice :D

  10. Natty says:

  11. Rach says:

    The utility cart is very clever to put in the front door! The moment I walk in, I just want to put down my keys and knick knacks!

  12. Katja says:

    Marianna, I’m sorry for asking this question again, I don’t want to be annoying, but I already asked and you didn’t reply and i need to know :P What lipgloss did you use on that picture with Minnie on Valentines Day? <3 Sending much love to you!

    p.s. do you put all those ikea things together? Because I hate putting ikea things together in always over screw or break something. I wonder if they have the same material here than over in Europe :/

    I watched your blog from 2008 to 2016. Wow ! At the beginning you bought in ZARA H&M and other shops (‘chain stores’). and now… you changed yourself ! I’m impressed ! It seems you made money alone ! Bravo !

    Please, write about your eternal style – I mean ‘must have’ in your wardrobe.

    Hey Marianna :)
    Where did you get the bed headboard? Or is it just a part of the bed?
    I’m looking for something like this so long!
    .. and one another question, I hardly dare to ask, but when do you visit germany next? Is it possible to get to know you and to drink a coffee together?
    It might sounds a little bit crazy or frightening, but in this long time I follow your blog, it seems, that you would be a good friend for me.
    We have so many commonalities.. it would be nice, if you would live here haha :)
    Maybe you like to write a email to me? :)
    Wish you a nice week!
