When I worked at Etsy, selecting and creating collections of gorgeous products was one of my favourite parts of the job and something I miss, so I decided to start sharing my personal collections of art/design/lifestyle inspiration here on my illustration blog.
I hope you enjoy this collection of kitchen/tableware items that was inspired by a moonlit boat trip from Finland to Sweden through the Åland Islands archipelago. Imagine – wee islands with a tiny red wooden house on each (a matching dog kennel, a sauna, a little rowing boat tied to the jetty), a midnight-blue sky illuminated by a full moon, a weird drunk guy trying to chat me up on the deck… well, you gotta keep it real, nothing is perfect in life.
It was beautiful. It’s a dream to live in one of these cottages, and these kinds of designs bring small reveries of this lifestyle into my reality.

I hope you appreciate the struggle I had not to include Moomins anywhere.
