Absolutely love the work stylist Minna Jones (Time of the aquarius) did for this housing project on

Vintage finds by Helsinki 2nd - just love the leather sofa and framed Arabia print - a lovely carpet by Saana ja Olli and my favorite Beehive pendent lamp by Artek.. aren't they simply irresistible! Lots of amazing brands are present thoughout this beautiful apartment, please check Minna's post here where they are all perfectly listed! Have a happy weekend! :)

Thanks so much Minna for this lovely feature, you're a true inspiration!

Each year Australian paint manufacturer Haymes creates a brand new color forecast.
Inspired by various trend forecasting mediums like Maison et Objet and Stylesight, they came up with their trend inspirations for 2015. According to Haymes we're eager to re-connect more with the world around us.. taking in our natural surroundings and giving back where ever we can. Moving to softer pallets demonstrated in the two themes Raw & New Skin. Exploring natural tones like lush greens and dusty pinks in themes Rhytmic Palms & Exotic Botanic. For a definite feel good factor Haymes came up with Relaxed Replay with vibrant brights like brilliant yellow and hot pink. Check out these five amazing themes on Haymes' YouTube channel (just use the link added to the different themes).

Loft apartment in Copenhagen

What an amazing open space!
This beautiful apartment in the middle of Copenhagen belongs to Maria Meilgaard, designer and owner of fashion brand Foreign Affairs. She lives here with her husband and son, but - to me - it doesn't look like a family home at all! Check out that iconic Barcelona daybed by Mies van der Rohe and wannahave Ellipse dining table by Danish designer Piet Hein. Combined with flea market finds and lots of Morrocan accessories this home is just super cool and definitely one of a kind.

Thank you Femina
