This week we chat with the talented Maria Laitinen of Scandihome as she picks her personal favourites from our latest collection 2017: Collection 01.
ZAKKIA: Tell us a little about your background and what you are doing now?
Maria: I was born and bred in Finland, but moved to Sydney 12 years ago. My professional background is in Geography (!), but I have been working as an interior/prop stylist for the past few years.
Z: What influences the style you have created in your home and work?
M: My style has always been influenced by my Scandinavian heritage: minimalism and clean lines. My family and I travel to Japan yearly, and I am forever inspired by Japanese aesthetics. Incredibly, there are many similarities between Nordic and Japanese styles!
Z: What do you love about your top picks from our latest collection?
I adore the Terrazzo collection and how versatile the pieces are. When I first saw the collection, I could think of so many uses for each piece; a great feature for any item, I think!
