Inspired By Riikka Kantinkoski

Have you heard of Finnish photographer, stylist and product designer Riikka Kantinkoski? I love her home in Finland and the beautiful photos that she takes for magazines, but also the snaps of her own house that she shares on her beautiful blog called Weekday Carnival.

I found her work through Susanna Vento's site and I've been in awe of Riikka ever since - especially of the things that she sells in her Big Cartel shop. Wow, I love it all, but especially her jewelry and these wooden knobs. Her soft color palette with shots of black definitely resonates with me as I love soft colors, too. Check out these images from her home. I especially love how she incorporated a West Elm comforter into her Finnish home - gorgeous!

Another version of her kitchen before she decorated it in shots of pink and black - this one is from a few months ago and will appear in a Paumes book about Finnish homes very soon.

I'm so inspired by the way that Riika decorates but also of the wares in her very special online shop. What a creative and clever lady!
