wishful wednesday [deko]

by kmcopeland

This week’s installment of wishful wednesdays features a home from Deko, a Finnish magazine I found through this blog that I love.  Things I love about it include: 1) that they put their records on display and have a giant A on their wall (you might also remember that I’m really feeling this color palette lately);

2) the chevron floors (duh) and painted legs of the dining room table (a nice alternative to the painted chairs that you see so often these days);

3) the light, bright and airy kitchen;

4) that amazeballs wallpaper that I want likerightnow;

5) that ridiculously cute elephant vignette and monkey hook in the kids room; and,

6) everything about the simplicity and rustic feel of this balcony (porch?).

This lesson is concluded.

It’s Black. It’s white.

You know it, uh-huh. Scandinavia appears to be rubbing off on me. I’ve never been one to embrace such a sparse color palette, so my attraction of late to black and white rooms with natural and wooden accents can only be attributed to the overwhelming popularity of this aesthetic in my new homeland. In defense of the trio, these rooms look so clean and thoughtfully pulled together – I just can’t get enough.

I’m shocked at how downright cozy they all make me feel. Perhaps I need some black, white and wood in my life!
