The Beautiful Home of Finnish Interior Stylist Susanna Vento

, , , , , , , , By Catherine


My love for Finnish Susanna Vento runs deep – She is one of the first stylists I’ve featured on this site, back in 2010; I was smitten by her fun, graphic, usually black and white interiors, like her family home in Helsinki. Throughout the years, her style evolved and I am still a big fan. And I am pleased today to share a peek inside her current apartment!

I really love how she plays with wall colors, and how it gives each room its own atmosphere.

I find her bedroom very inspiring – Moody and cozy, with a gorgeous natural rattan headboard, large frameless bronze-tinted mirror, and Noguchi paper lamp. Lovely!

And what to say about that sweet kids’ bedroom with bunk beds? So cute.

    Beautiful. Would be great to know the paint names too!

      They are most likely by Jotun Lady, but I don’t have this brand in Canada so I am unable to find out similar options, unfortunately. Maybe on my next trip to Scandinavia, I’ll be able to pick up some samples :)

    I bet the paint are by Tikkurila, Finnish brand

      Yes, that sounds about right :)

    I’ve been looking for a very long time for this pink for that exact color pallet. We’re you able to find a brand and paint name? Any ideas if there’s a Sherwin Williams or BM similar to this?

      I particularly like Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball, but try Benjamin Moore’ AF-190.
