There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.

Helsinki, 18 degrees

I've been meaning to show you some pictures from a week ago when I went to see one of the stunning buildings that we have here in Helsinki. This one, called the Iron House, is usually not open for public, so I was in for a treat when I saw it with some of my friends. This was one of the events that we've had here this year thanks to the fact that we are the World Design Capital. The event was called Helsinki Design Open and showed not only the beautifully designed building, but also some Finnish design items - my favorite being the cute wish boxes and the pulsating lamps that kept on moving all the time. The building itself is known for the fact that it is designed by our most famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, have you heard about him?



Don't mind the hair, these photos were taken before my hairdresser visit. What kind of design inspires you?

  2. I'm not sure if I have heard about that man..
    but the whole event reminds me of an Estonian art museum called KUMU. and when it comes to design I tend to like vintage things. I have many vintage furniture in my house though some rooms are actually pretty modern as well.
