A Clutter-free Finnish Home with Fab Childrens' Rooms

I seem to be going through a contemporary Finnish phase right now: there's something about the light, minimalist style in particular that feels like a real mid-week breath of fresh air. Do you feel the same? If so you'll love one of my latest finds: the home of Melina, Niko, children Minea and Noah and French bulldog Pablo. The newly built open-plan house has been decorated in shades of white, light grey, tan and beige and is full of light and completely clutter-free (it's the kind of place that even the mess looks pretty) and yet feels family friendly too (the kids rooms rock!). Ready to take a peek?

Faces No1 Poster, the cushion looks similar the Malmen velver chestnut one I have in my bedroom and you can just see a glimpse of the lovely Saxe lounge chair. Tips on sofa in the comment section welcome (it looks very much like the Bolia one I used to have).

Tom Dixon Fat Beat light and Tall light, Urban childran's chair.

I love this combination of the black string shelving system against light wood - so striking!

Nordström sell a canvas play tent like this one.Why does it not look in the way in their house, like it does in ours?! Guh! How I'd love an upstairs 'allrum' like this!

What a dream bedroom?! From the gym equipment (from Suomen Voimistelurenkaat to the rain drop wall stickers (these are fairly simple to make yourself but you can also pick up some just like these) and of course, the bed Niko made.

And there you have it, a contemporary, clutter-free home that's perfect for children.

Anyone else thinking of attacking their home with a black bin bag?!

See more pics of Melina's home over on her blog and instagram feed - where she also shares snippets of her home, cool children's clothing finds, toys and recipes (yes, she also bakes a mean cake) on her blog Mini show (written in Finnish, but there's always good old google translate!). As always there are a load more wonderful Finnish homes to explore right here too.

Hyvää päivän jatkoa! (I hope this means 'have a great day' in Finnish...).
