Hi all, with the weather refusing to catch up and realise it’s Spring (hail and snow yesterday!!), let’s all jet off to sunny Turkey instead. Sounds like a plan right? And luckily I know just the place we should go… Monica’s amazing little summerhouse apartment in Istanbul. I first discovered Monica on at{mine} because of her beautiful food photography actually. But then a snoop around revealed that she had a seriously stylish home too of course. It’s a Scandi vibe translated to the Turkish coast – sounds like a weird mash-up maybe but it really works. Monica’s most clever tricks are two of my personal faves as well, she uses clever paint and an abundance of plants. Simple but gorgeous! Enjoy the tour as well as Monica’s DIY projects and top photography tips. We can all dream of sunshine at least.


Welcome to my pad. It’s a 1970’s summerhouse looking over the coast of the Marmara sea in İstanbul, Turkey. I live with my partner and our two cats, and we’ve been here for 3 years.

My style in 5 words… Mix of Swedish, boho vintage, modern, flea market and authentic. Sorry, that’s not 5 words!!
