This startlingly creative space is home to Suki of Varpunen, a blog chronicling family life in a studio apartment in Helsinki. Suki sticks to a black and white color scheme, adding dramatic touches like recurring Inca-inspired patterns, oddly appealing painted horse figurines, and a homemade light fixture of acid yellow and orange cloth-cord lights tied in a knot.
Above: Suki decorated her kitchen with triangles of black tape. "My love of Inca patterns led to this. Our kitchen was very basic and boring, but since we're looking for a new flat, I didn't want to do anything radical. This costs almost nothing and is easy to remove."
