it’s a sought-after neighbourhood where the natural scenery and impactful architecture collide. Apart from its exceptional geographical advantage, what drew Tiina’s attention to this apartment was its lightness and openness. "It gives you room to breathe, and that grants me ultimate freedom and inspiration to create a home that feels like our own," she says. "It’s really important to reflect my husband’s and my individual styles, as well as our shared aesthetics."

"To me, the essence of a dream home is a place filled with meaningful objects that bring great memories," she continues. "Other than that, I also love creating contrast with graphic and floral prints to break the pattern of a decorative scheme." But first and foremost, as Tiina repeatedly emphasises, the best way to infuse life into a space is to forget the rules – and have fun. //和出色建築著稱。除了優越的地理位置外，最能吸引Tiina的還有單位開揚無阻的空間設計。「身在其中，你能自然呼吸，讓我有更大自由和更多靈感創造專屬我們三口子的家。」她說：「最重要就是反映丈夫和我的獨特個性，以及我們的共同美學。」
