Laura Seppänen latest

Posted on Thu, 6 Aug 2015 by midcenturyjo

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.

Living room lights – Diesel & Foscarini

Oak sideboard, dining table, brass and rugs – BoConcept

Sofas and side tables – Adea

Desk and TV stand – Valanti

Mirror – House Doctor

Marble top table – Handmade in Finland

Posters – The Poster Club

This is magic!

I normally drool over black/charcoal tones against wood. But the photography here seems to have drained all the deep richness out of the wood. There's that tipping point, when I do the same to my own photography.

Axie says:

That's very interesting, Ruth. I wondered about that too, but couldn't put my finger on it- it looks faded. I love the decor, the colors etc but i looks like the photo was filtered.

I want that sofa..
