Happily Ever After: Stella Harasek

May 3, 2012 0


If only my Finish was a bit better. Ok, ok, if only I understood Finish at all. Then I’d be able to tell you if this is the home of the Finish freelance writer and photographer Stella Harasek or this stylish home was just shot by her. Either way – this lady has style. Oh yes. 

I don’t even know where to start with my devoted admiration. Do I point out that classy Butterfly chair by Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy? Do I favour the neutral colour palette, the abundance of natural light, the quirky magazine rack? What I love most about this home is its honesty. Its unpretentious being. Its personality. Its lived-in atmosphere. This is not a neatly styled high-gloss mansion. It’s not a museum-like collection of paraphernalia. It is not an over-stylized design gallery. And that is predominately why I love this home. It is a real home. One that you’d love to come back at the end of the day.

    Haha, thanks Igor for your kind words! Yeah, it’s our home. The interior is a random collection of second hand finds, vintage junk and stuff we’ve got from friends, combined with a few pieces of design I really love (like the butterfly chair and the lamp). It looks a lot like us. Glad to hear you like it too!
