Can you tell us your country/city?
We live by the lake in Lahti, Finland.
What inspires you?
Timeless design, but also innovative diy-projects.
What would your mission statement be for your home?
Light, bright and cozy.
Name your 3 favourite designers?
Alvar Aalto – My favourite Finnish designer. His designs still look stunning after several decades.
Saana ja Olli – This Finnish designer couple has created gorgeous hemp textiles. I love their patterns and I’m sure we will be hearing a lot more of them in the future.
Arne Jacobsen – Danish designer-genius! The Egg chair would be a dream come true to me.
What is the favourite piece of design in your home?
The Ballchair at my son’s room, I love it! Eero Aarnio would have been the 4th on my designer list…
What’s your favourite room and why?
I must say our livingroom. Not only because we spend a lot of time there, but also because I love the big open space and our large lounge suite that fits our whole family.
What future plans do you have for your place?
I’m looking forward to spring/summer, so that I can start the gardening again. I’m planning to have a tiny herb plantation on our back yard. At the moment I’m planning to redecorate our fireplace room. I’m going to change everything there and hoping it will be so gorgeous room, that finally we would spend some familytime there..
When not making your home beautiful, what are you spending your time doing?
Thanks to my two lil tornados, I don’t have too much spare time. But I love cooking fine dining and trying to keep myself fit by running.
