it´s time to share something really breathtaking;) those of you who have a passion for scandinavian interior will definately be fascinated by the work of Paulina Arcklin. i am totally in love with her style: all in white and with some ethnic eye catchers. i like how Paulina combines modern it-pieces like the cotton lamp or Butterfly chair with rustic and ethnic elements like candle holders, vases or indian doors that she painted in white. Paulina´s interior style is a combination of a scandinavian simplicity, ethnic vibes, flea market flair and a touch of industrial charm.
Paulina is an interior stylist and photographer, originally from Finland, now based in Amsterdam. Paulina makes not only breathtaking pictures but also creates a visual concept for her customers. She makes all-inclusive concepts for brand and online stores, including creating a unique visual profile, styling, product photography and creating inspiring online catalogues.
Almost all pieces of furniture in Paulina´s apartment are white. Paulina says, “when i see a piece of furniture or a decoration object in some other colour, i pay attention only to the shape and structure, i see them im white”.
Her couch table for example were old palettes that she painted white. it looks great, doesn´t it?
Paulina has several rustic doors in her apartment that she painted in white.
looks like a painting on the wall;)
this picture frame was painted black
The night i found Paulinas blog i coudn´t sleep, i checked all her posts from the beginning and when i fall asleep (like 4 hours later;)) i dreamed of a white house full of light and it felt so good to be in there…her pictures are like a goodnight story for me;)
The industrial lamps on the ceiling are painted white as well
The most fascinating thing about Paulina´s home is that the interior is is not that expensive. Everybody can create such an atmosphere at home. Of course there are many beatiful expensive brand it-pieces that would make your home look stylish. But often is enough to have 1-2 it-pieces and combine them with DIY-pieces and flea market funds and may be old things that get a new life through new colour. this is what makes our homes look personal.
You can have a 3D-tour through Paulina´s apartment, made in cooperation with a Dutch TV program EIGENHUIS EN TUIN ,

lovely, isn´t it?
I am so excited to show you some of my favorite works by Paulina, where she acted both as a stylist and a photographer:
amazing pictures, are´nt they?
…Paulina´s home is imbued with an atmosphere of almost meditative tranquility and calmness for me and inspire me to create similar atmosphere in my home. i hope you liked Paulina´s interior style and her photography as i do and may be it inspired you to make your home even more beautiful as it is;)
I don´t have any special plans for the afternoon, so i will have a look if i find some old vases that i can paint white:))
@ Dear Paulina, thank you very much for your kind permission to share your breathtaking pictures!!!
have a nice sunny day,
