Finnish Blue in the Hamptons

I dare say that Spring has sprung in Stockholm! I am going ahead of myself in this post with a Summer House inspiration I simply could not resist. Featured in the Remodelista book, this home is bursting with beautiful and elegant hues of deep blue throughout. The house belongs to Tiina Laakonen, stylist and owner of Tiina the Store. The house is also filled with Scandinavian classics in the form of textiles, furniture, ceramics and accessories. Although located in the Hamptons, this house would be right at home in the Finnish or Swedish Archipelago.
