The client's wish was for a hotel room vibe without colour for this two room apartment in the centre of Helsinki so Finnish interior designer Laura Seppänen mixed charcoal tones with warm wood and cool posters to create a stylish, monochrome interior. Laura explains she wanted to showcase Finnish design with most of the furniture is either handmade in Finland or from Finnish furniture brands such as Adea & Valanti. Other Scandinavian brands like BoConcept & Menu also feature and those fab posters are from The Poster Club. Not only did Laura create this beautiful apartment she styled the shoot with photographer Suvi Kesäläinen. She's even let us in on the sources for the key pieces which you can find at the end of the post.
Last week I shared a restaurant by Suvi-Maria Silvola and Laura Seppänen and ... well ... I just couldn't leave it there, could I? I just had to share this apartment by Helsinki based interior designer and decorating editor Laura. Classic scandi design. Bright, white, clean lined and stylish. Love it.

Block by Dylan is a lunch & brunch restaurant located in the center of Helsinki, right next to the Kauppatori market square. Designed by Suvi-Maria Silvola and Laura Seppänen, it's a cool mix of Scandinavian minimalism, vivid colour, warm wood tones and clean lined functionality. I can't believe I have another restaurant to add to my bucket list. Good design and great food gets me every time. Photography by Pauliina Salonen
Jo has featured interiors by Finish designer Joanna Laajisto a few times, so I was stoked to find a feature of the Helsinki apartment she shares with her photographer husband Mikko Ryhänen. This 1928 remodeled space is beautifully restrained and bathed in white. Scandinavian decor at its finest. (Photos by Mikko Ryhänen via Living)
