Trend alert: Dots

Helsinki, 10 degrees


From now on, I'll connect the dots my own way.

Family is an amazing thing - one might not see one's family members for two weeks due to travels and rush, but once you meet, it's like no time has passed by. That's what I experienced yesterday when I went to my mom's place. I guess the sayings is true: "I don't care how poor a man is; if he has a family, he's rich."

This week seems to continue busy which means less time to spend at home with the new apartment. Nevertheless, I'm thinking about how to decorate it all the time and fortunately in the end of this week I'll have more time to realize some plans. Today I've been reflecting about the coloring in the apartment. Right now it seems the kitchen is going to be black/white color, the living room black/white/silver/dark grey color, the bedroom white/brown/gold color and the study black/white/transparent (glass)/marine blue color. The bathroom is white/mint color. How does that sound? I've also been thinking about if dots should be used in the interior since dots seem to actually be all around right now.

What do you think about my latest polka dot purchase? Do you think dots are timeless when it comes to fashion? How has your week started?

  1. yeah, I think polka dots are timeless when it comes to fashion and clothes. but when it comes to interior design I guess people should be careful when using those because the result may end up too repressive (for instance I find the brown'ish polka dot wallpaper a bit too much for that room). but I totally like your white & blue polka dot dress! very classy!

  3. Hi dear, since I have a polka dot phobia (yes it is actually true) I won't mention the dots, but your colour ideas sounds really great
