I have been an avid follower of everything happening on Finnish stylist Susanna Vento’s page and I think I could recognize her works even among hundreds because of their moody character. She works quite a lot with Marimekko – I liked the calm table settings she did for the 2018 autumn-winter collection of the Finnish brand – and I also loved her styling work for Kekkilä, especially the vegetable bouquet, check it out.
The way she decorated her own home is unsurprisingly similar to the assignments she has. Scrolling slowly through the pictures on her page felt like reading the beautifully composed verses of a poem. If I want to describe this interior, I would use the words soft, warm tones, peace and quiet, harmony, still life and serenity. Even the lovely picture of her daughter playing with the family’s cat resembles a painting.
Let’s step inside.
