home.

♥♥♥
this has been our home for 18 days now. it took a long time for me to photograph it - but I have finally got developed a film roll and decided to share some of my favourite shots: I hope they will be able to express the lovely feeling of home that I have been experiencing since the very first day we moved to this place.
photographs of home:

Nikon FM - kodak portra 800.
in these photographs you can see some of my favourite things about this place: the wall paper of the entrance hall, the white clock above the bathroom door, the closet for our cameras, the wooden staircase that takes to our bedroom, the antique tile stove with our plants, the corner with my desk and our pictures, the shelves with our favourite books, the blackboard on the kitchen's wall and the dining table under the kitchen's window. in these photographs you cannot see properly some other things I love about this place: the comfortable sofa where I lay down to read, the beautiful dark wooden kitchen where we cook and enjoy delicious meals, the pretty green-tiled bathroom and the antique wooden floor.
♥ how could I possibly express the feeling of home through photographs? I just truly love our new place!

    1. thank you, Alice! :-) I love that you call it "mini tree house bed corner"! :-) it's not really typical Finnish, it's just a way to save space that is very common in city apartments! ;-)

    The tile stove looks very special and is wonderful with your flowers.
    And the wall paper is beautiful and suits so well to the style of the apartment.
