Stunning Finnish home


It’s happened to me more than once already, that when I visit m2=neliö blog, I think that there’s some gorgeous pictures from a decor magazine. Only to realize that the photos are not from a magazine, they are from their own home! I have showed you some inspiring Swedish homes, but now it’s time to show a Finnish home that is truly inspiring. And why not? Even if we are sometimes in the shadows of our neighboring “big brother” Sweden, there’s some excellent design in Finland too :)

Like this kitchen. I have lately found myself craving for black. I’ve had this odd urge to add black accents here and there and Nelio’s kitchen is partly to blame. I mean look at that Cole & Son’s Cow Parsley wallpaper. Could I snatch a piece of that to our home??

I don’t know if it’s winter but lately I seem to be drawn to calm neutral tones as well. I love how Nelio has used them together with white, making it look cozy and inviting. And there’s more wallpaper to love: Ken kiuruista kaunein by Tapettitehdas Pihlgren ja Ritola.

One cool kid lives here. (Maybe two.)

This is one of the nicest, if not the nicest children’s room I’ve seen. I love what she’s done with the Ferris wallpaper. I’m sure sweet dreams are seen under those hot-air balloons flying to some distant, magical places… :) What do you think?

If you are not already familiar with m2=neliö, hop on over! There’s more gorgeous images, PLUS she writes both in Finnish and in English.

    Nelion koti on niin fantastinen! Itekkin luulin ensin että kuvat on vaan inspiraatiota jostain muualta. Jotkut ne vaan osaa.

    thanks for sharing this! I really like Scandinavian design, but have to say that after our road trip this summer found myself really liking Finnish design and the new stuff from Estonia. I find Danish and Swedish design SO light and airy that I often feel like I’m going to float away, but Finnish stuff seems more grounded somehow, perhaps by incorporating more dark colors. It also seems warmer, in general, and I like that.

    Those children beds look very familiar :) My brothers had similar ones at the 70’s and they’ve been tucked away in a storage for decades

    Hello. Could you please tell me what that large white thing is in the corner of one of the rooms, to the right of a lamp and a bookcase? Thanks!
