I can’t believe it but it’s been almost two years that I have been living in my apartment now. On one hand it feels like forever, on the other hand it feels crazy cause it’s not such a long time compared to my tiny, old rooftop apartment (where I had lived for 10 years). Still I felt it was about time to give my living room a little update. And I admit, there was just a perfect excuse to do so: my brand new handwoven rug from Tisca!
Do you remember my trip to Romania recently? I went there with a bunch of friends and fellow bloggers following an invitation of Tisca to discover their rug manufacturing in Transylvania (you can see and read about it HERE). Moreover, I was a pretty lucky bastard to be able to choose a new rug for my home. And I did so: I picked the stylish Barrio model in a natural off-white color. And wow, the rug is really a game changer. It transformed my living room from a very bohemian/nomadic style into a sleek Scandi-boho version. Don’t you agree?
So while the rug set the tone in the living room, I played around with some other furniture pieces and decorative items too. I exchanged the big mango wood coffee table for my Finn Juhl Tray coffee table and paired it with the Eames Occasional Table. I think this combination looks ace with the Tisca rug, my vintage Finn Juhl Diplomat chair and the leather sofa. Even though I have reduced the items in the room, I added a new design icon: The Butterfly Stool in palisander by Sori Yanagi that I found on Flinders. A while ago I secured myself the iconic Flowerpot lamp from Flinders too (see it here). I love the stool’s sculptural look and the palisander color matching the rest of the interior (and some of my Brazilian souvenirs).
My general idea for this living room update was a somewhat more serene, plant-filled and cozy atmoshpere. I always like to add a bunch of fresh flowers – even more if the color of the flowers match my interior styling like in this case. Due to my lack of time during the day I must admit that I rely on a good quality flower subscription – it is just so much easier for me. This flower arrangement looks so beautiful and seems to be customized for my dining area.
I hope you like the little update and maybe you even feel inspired to change up things at home too? I mean why not! At least for me it is always fun to do a little restyling and feel refreshed and cozy at home! Have fun!

You’re house definitely looked lovely w/ all those plants around.
Plants are a real game changer in interiors!
Sooo beautiful, sooo cosy…
Really like the new handwoven rug from Tisca you mention above, really classy. Overall, you have created a great blog and thank you for that.
Thanks a lot! I really like the rug and it feels incredibly nice to walk barefeet on it!
I’ve always loved your photography and design of the blog. It’s been a while since I stopped by here and boy! am I glad.
What’s the plant in the first picture below the lamp called? How do they do in winter?
I assume you mean the Monstera deliciosa? Well it is a typical houseplant and in this climate here it does well summer and winter – but indoors! In winter with somewhat less watering of course.
The wooden armadillo is adorable! I also love the single-eyed face on the wall and the blue-grey-and-ochre abstract painting on the grey wall. Thanks for sharing!
Absolutely love your space! x
Thank you Vivien!
Stunning decors. I cannot imagine a room without plants.
Thank you Maria! Neither can I 🙂
