Sisustustuliaisia Suomesta

27.8.2015 Teksti: Jenni Ukkonen

En pysty koskaan lähtemään Suomesta täyttämättä matkalaukkuani edes vähän jollain pienellä tuliaisella.

Yleensä tuliaiset ovat Iittalan kahvimukeja, joita äitini on ihanana minulle hankkinut, sekä jotain, mitä olen nopealla ohikulkumatkalla Stockalta mukaani napannut. Näin tälläkin kertaa. Ja koska niinsanottu pesänrakennushimoni on ollut viimeaikoina aivan katossa, mikäpä olisikaan ollut parempaa, kuin pyörähdys Stockan sisustusosastolla?

Tällä erää mukaan lähti Balmuirin kaunis tarjotin, jota olin jo aikani ehtinyt himoita. Se tulee olemaan oiva ”minibaari”. Rakastan elegantin hopean ja ylellisen konjakinvärisen nahan yhdistelmää. Stockan ihana myyjä kuvaili tätä tarjotinta ikuiseksi; sellaiseksi asiaksi, mistä on iloa vaikka loppuelämäksi ja tiedättekö, olen kyllä täysin samaa mieltä!

Lisäksi nappasin Balmuirilta mukaan tyylikkään pallonmuotoisen kynttilän – ostin samanlaisen toisessa koossa aiemmin tänä vuonna ja olen ikään kuin kaipaillut sille kaveria.

Vielä yksi sisustusesine on tämä upea kuparin / ruusukullan sävyinen valokuvakehys. Tähänkin sarjaa minulta löytyy jo parit kehykset ennestään ja ne yhdessä ovat aivan ihania rakkaita valokuvia ja muistoja kehystämään!

 

I never seem to be able to leave Finland without small little somethings filling my suitcase.

Usually it’s Iittala coffee cups that my mum has kindly bought for me and something that I quickly grabbed with me whilst having a quick stroll at Stockmann. It was no different this time around. And since my will to nest has been off the roof lately, what better than wandering around Stockmann decor section?

This time I picked up a beautiful tray by Balmuir which I have been lusting after for a while. I think it will make a great ”mini bar”. I love the combination of elegant silver and luxurious tan leather. The lady in Stockmann described the tray as a “forever piece” that you buy once and hold onto forever and you know what – I totally agree!

I also picked up another of these gorgeous ball shaped candles by Balmuir – I bought a smaller one in the spring and have been wanting a buddy for it since then.

Another little décor thing that I already has was this copper / rose gold photo frame. I have two of the same style already and I think they are lovely for holding some precious photos and memories!

  • Five random facts about me✨ ✔️I used to hate coffee and only got into it when I was around 22, which I think is pretty late to start drinking coffee? Now I start e v e r y day with coffee and can easily have three cups a day... Also, my favourite hobby is discovering interesting cafes ✔️I was born in Rovaniemi (in the Finnish Lapland) and lived there until I was 20. Since then I've lived in London (5 yrs), Munich (1 yr), Dubai (1+ yr) and now I'm in Ras Al Khaimah for a second year. This year is my 9th year abroad - and the time has flown by! ✔️I grew up with dogs in my family and never had much contact with cats. Since moving to the UAE, I quickly fell in love with cats and at the moment couldn't imagine a more perfect pet for myself. We have a 1,5 year old Arabian Mau named Ghibli, after Studio Ghibli films ✔️I'm a true Taurus and I believe in astrology, especially in terms of personalities and characteristics. I truly think it helps in understanding others ✔️I love horror movies BUT I only enjoy watching them at home and probably wouldn't go watch one in the cinema. I'd watch horror movies over romantic comedies any day!
