Home Tour: Natural Living in Finland

August 10, 2015

I came across the most beautiful Finnish home and blog over the weekend while my little one was napping, called No Home Without You, based just outside of Helsinki. First, I adore the blog name because it’s just so true. Many overlook this very simple truth about ours homes while installing new drapes and cushions: Interior objects don’t make a home, people (or pets) whom you love, who live there with you, make it a home. The material “stuff” just makes it pretty and allows you to express your creativity while also creating a space that functions well enough to serve your needs.

Of course, in addition to those you love, many of us are very proud of our domestic skills and have decorating high up on our favorite things to do list. I certainly do. The blogger behind No Home Without You, Kaisa Palomaki, also loves to decorate which is evident in the photos she shares on her blog that you will see below – it’s so serene, natural, inviting and beautiful. Kaisa has such a knack for pulling together a wonderful space with a very clear style that is all her own. I also love her DIY projects like this yarn art that she calls an Aztec Wall Hanging shown above her bed.

Do you spot anything that you instantly love? I love her prints (for sale in her online shop), throw rugs and bedding, her TV credenza and the wood with lights leaning against the wall in her living room – but I also love her deep and cozy sofa and her wooden floors too. Gorgeous.

    what a beautiful space to call a home! and you are so right, the stuff isn’t what makes the home! it is the people, pets, and memories that you share there. love this!

    I’m really loving the use of patterns on a muted palette – lovely textures, too, bring it all together.

    Thanks for showing these great pics. Especially love that there’s a TV on show as for some reason most living rooms here don’t show them. Very realistic. Thank you. X
