to be honest the use of gray kitchen cabinets with marble countertop sometimes can seem too ‘suburban’. yet the compact layout, the wall organizers, plus black grout for the subway tile — this small kitchen from Göteborg, sweden has a rather urban-cool vibe.

sunday afternoon is one of my favorite time of the week. ( … most favorite time? saturday morning! )

this set of images from fantastic frank reminds me just the exact feeling of sunday afternoon: the warmth of natural sunlight, the peaceful, quiet moment (with some occasional dog barking in the background), the shadow & the glitter casted through the water glass.

love the neutral palette which creates a earthy, calming interior that soothe and quiet the busy mind.

happy monday! to those who live in US, i hope you enjoyed the first day of daylight saving! ( it’s more like “i lost one hour sleep” in my case…) anyway, it is a good news. ideally it means the spring is coming soon. more sunshine and less gray, gloomy (sometimes snowy) days!

not too surprised to see the art director of danish poster brand I LOVE MY TYPE kathrine has brought her inspiration from typographical poster universe to this three rooms apartment. there is a nice contrast between the modern design and flea market found, which personalize the interior space with warm & welcoming atmosphere.

designers & bloggers henna | coco sweet dreams and suvi | suvi sur le vif from turku, finland, just launched a visual project called hetki paper, where they collect moments and things in everyday life.

the first ‘at home with’ they interviewed anna & tuomas from less is more.fi. with the additional family member arrived, they are moving out from their two-years-old dream apartment soon and are planing to move into a riverside wooden house (which sounds like another dream home).

stop by hetki paper for the complete interview. here are couple of my favorite corners:
