Retro Modern

Ma hakkan paari nädala või kuu pärast esimest korda elus kolima, see oleneb sellest, millal me osa oma mööblist kätte same. Aga need on vajad esmavajalikud asjad, ma tahaks seal pisut sees elada ja saada aimu selle koha aurast enne kui ülejäänud mööbli osas otsuseid tegema hakkan.
Kui nüüd aus olla, siis teeme otsuseid meie mitte mina üksi, ehk mina koos oma elukaaslasega, aga olgem ausad, kuna mina olen meist see loovama mõtlemisega, siis ma tunnen, et ma tean paremini :D Aga mul on üleüldine idee olemas, mida ma tahaksin selle korterga teha. Mulle väga meeldib selline retro-moderne stiil , ma arvan, et see sobiks sinna väga hästi. Me plaanime ilmselt Soome IKEAsse mnna, seal on nii palju vingeid asju ja ka hea hinnaga.
Ma tahaksin ülmuljet üsna monokroomsena hoida, kuid ilmselt tuleb ka mingeid värve sisse. Ilmselt kööki pisut punast (sest meil on juba mõned asjad olemas), mulle meeldivad väga ka teatud tooni helesinine ja roheline, aga eks näis. Aga ma tahaks värvid hoida pigem tekstiilides ja detailides, et neid oleks soovi korral kerge välja vahetada.
Kui teil on soovitusi, kust leiab ägedaid asju, siis ma olen väga tänulik! :)

 I'm about to move for the first time in my life in a few weeks or a month- depends on when some of our furniture arrives. But those are just the essentials, I would like to live there for a bit to get a feel of the place before purchasing more furniture.
Well, ok, it's actually we- me and my bf, but who am I kidding, I'm the artsy one and I feel like I know better :D But I do have a general idea what I would like to do with the place. I love this sort of a retro modern style and I think it's rather perfect for our little apartment. I think we are going to go to IKEA in Finland to get some of the stuff we need, they have really cool things for a reasonable price.
I would like to keep it rather monochrome though. But some splashes of colour will probably be there too. I'm thinking a bit of red for the kitchen (because we already have some stuff), I also really a certain tone of light blue and green, but we'll see. I would like to keep the colours in textiles and details so it would be easy to chance those things if we feel like it.
If you have some suggestions where I could get some cool stuff I would really appreciate it! :)

O Christmas Tree

Jõulupuu ehtimine on meie peres alati oluline sündmus. Nii tore on imetleda hoolega valitud jõuluehteid ja asetada need ideaalsele kohale kuusel. Erilist tähendust omavad isa tehtud papist piarkoogišabloonid (sest 25 aastat tagasi polnud poest jõuluvana- või siilikujulist vormi) ja reisidelt kaasa toodud ehted. Neid kuusele riputades saab meenutada lapsepõlve piparkoogitegusid ja kauneid mälestusi erinevatest maadest. 
Trimming the tree is a really special occasion in our family. Looking at all the carefully picked ornaments and finding the right spot on the tree is a wonderful activity for the whole family. The most special ornaments are cardboard gingerbread moulds made by my dad (because 25 years ago you couldn't buy special shapes like a Santa or a hedgehog from the stores) and ornaments brought home from trips. Every year when we put them on the tree we are reminded of the wonderful memories connected with them.

Midsummer

This year we had one of those rare Midsummer Eves when one can wear a sundress instead of a parka and wellies. The setting sun gilded the fields and girls with flower crowns walked in the wild blooms of the meadow.  And though once the sun had disappeared behind the woods, the chill of a June night set in, the longest night of the year lost none of its magic. A magical evening turned into a mysterious night. When dusk melted into dawn, the first rays of the morning sun were greeted by a thick fog. 
Evenings like this on the meadow always make me feel like a fairy, wanting to dance in the evening light with the dress and hair all flying in the wind. There is something so mystical in moments like that, as if time disappears connecting us to some ancient era.

Jaanipäev õnnistas meid haruldlase võimalusega vahetada parka ja kummikud lendleva suvekleidi vastu. Jaaniõhtu päike kuldas põllud ja nendel hõljuvad pärjatud jaanikulised üle oma maagilise valgusega. Horisondi taha kadudes muutus p…

Wild Horses

Väljas muutuvad lehed aina kuldsemaks ja hommikud aina kargemaks. Mina aga leidsin selle imeilusa suvemeenutuse: päikseloojang, kilomeetrite kaupa puhast liiva, sinine taevas, rahulik meri ja mitukümmend imelist hobust. Harukordselt madal vesi muutis meie rannaniidu justkui Araabia liivadüünideks, kus päike kõrvetab ja ringi kappavad metsikud hobused.

The leaves are changing colour and the mornings are getting crisper, yet I found this lovely memory from this summer. Sunset, long stretches of white sandy beaches, blue skies, calm seas and a about fifty or so beautiful horses. Extraordinarily low sea levels turned our green and grassy beaches into Arabian sand dunes where the sun and wind were hot and wild horses roamed.
