Happy weekend

by Sofia   -   in Blog collaboration  Interior design

I wish you all a very happy weekend! This week I put up and decorated the Christmas tree and filled our house with the scent of hyacinths & tangerines. We bought some take away hot cocoa and looked at the Christmassy windows of Stockmann´s, another loved traditions of our. I think the miniature village they have this year is very very cute!

This Sunday we will bake some gingerbread cookies and perhaps even try to build a house. Let´s see how that might go. I have also started to do some Christmas cleaning. For me it´s mostly organising ( as I am such a cheat and have nam actual cleaner do the scrubbing)  and the organising is mostly in the girls room as usually the rest of the house is in pretty decent shape. I tried to take some photos for you but it was pretty dark. Will hopefully catch a better day on Sunday. I can not wait for the light in the new house. I have a feeling that taking pictures will be so much easier. Even my pantry has a window. Obviously at this time of the year the light just does not seem to be good at any place or at any hour. Every year the same dilemma. 

Anyhow I hope you have the best weekend! I´m looking forward to putting a fire in the fireplace tonight and having some glögi in front of it with the girls & hubby.

p.s. The absolutely gorgeous new bedding from V´lody Oriental I tried to shoot for you and that you can see in a few of these pictures ( the one I have been raving about on insta) is now live for purchase ( international shipping by request too!) and free domestic shipping. They are the perfect Christmas presents and so easy to purchase whilst sipping your red wine and you even support a small local business! Go check them out! Also available on the Prologue shop in Helsinki.

Colour schemes

by Sofia   -   in Interior design

So we have finally chose the colour schemes for the girls rooms. They are obviously big enough to have their say but I did veto unicorn wallpaper or other things that they probably would get bored of in a year. On the contrary to what I had thought, Cotton Candy absolutely wanted a pink room and she wanted wallpaper. Bubble Gum on the other hand chose a greyish light blue paint from Farrow & Ball and decided against wallpaper in the end ( I had looked at a very pretty floral one for her but it is her decision and I love love love the colour we found for her). We are keeping both rooms fresh with the addition of plenty of white. I had first thought it would be a good idea not to share the progress here and just show you the end result but I guess the progress bit is part of blogging. I will have wallpaper in one other room in the house on top of Cotton Candy´s room and I have made some surprising decisions too. I´m feeling very very sad about leaving this house but at the same time I´m so thrilled to be building this new dream. We all know that in the end it will not be as perfect every day as it is in our heads. My part of the walk in closet will have it´s pile of cashmere jumpers starting to lean a little over time and there will be keys and post on the foyer table, shoes will not always find their place inside a cupboard and there will be cookbooks and cooking magazines piling up on the kitchen counter. But I´m still cherishing the thought of this house. At the moment it is at it´s very bare bones. Nothing really worthwhile to see happening there. Yesterday they made a whole on the wall from the dining room to the kithchen and there are no floors in any of the wet spaces. The girls said it looks more like a metro stations than a home. But it will be ready one day.

Hope you are having a lovely day! I´m up to no good with a bunch of Christmas decorations and cinnamon & cardamon powdered Christmas coffee ( love Nespresso´ s new seasonal flavours to no end, I musts tock up on them soon). And do check up on me on Instagram as I just opened a parcel of ” not to be missed” goodies I´m dying to share soon with you here too!

Our little butterfly

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Cotton Candy turned nine. Nine years old! She is not a baby anymore. We had a very simple and chic party for her that we had invited family and Godparents to. We served a vegetarian lasagna with some salad and wine and afterwards cake and ice-cream with whipped cream and meringues ( usually the kids favourite). Here are a few photos from the party…
