I N T R OJoanna Laajisto, the founder of Joanna Laajisto Creative Studio, is a Helsinki based interior architect and designer who has studied and made her career in the West Coast of United States. Prior to moving back to her native country Finland, she worked in Los Angeles at an international architect firm designing large scale commercial projects.

w i s h i n gI've been on a wishful mood lately. It might have something to do with my coming trips and all the beautiful things my favorite shops are coming out with for Winter.

Next on my wish list and this almost goes all the way to daydream, this entire ensemble by Christophe Lemaire. This Tube Bangle by &OtherStories (Now in The Nederlands!). Continuing with my list and clear OCD issues: Afteroom Caddies by Menu. That gorgeous Camel Coat and Dress by Zara and last but not least this shoes I'm still trying to find the source for. What's on your list?

Asian Fall VegetablesKraut Kopf has quickly become my go-to food blog and this the recipe I'm itching to prepare.
