Klaus Haapaniemi on Glorian koti

Home of Klaus Haapaniemi

When I saw that Klaus Haapaniemi was featured on the August issue of Glorian koti, I just had to get it. Ok, I buy Glorian koti quite often anyway. But because I have several evergrowing piles of decor magazines, I've tried to become more picky and not carry home every single issue of every single magazine. This one - I just had to get it. When it comes to illustrators, Klaus haapaniemi is one of my biggest idols, and Glorian koti featured his beautiful London home.

Klaus Haapaniemi and Mia Wallenius live in an victorian house near London's Victoria Park. Mia used to be art director at Gucci Group, but now they work together for the Klaus Haapaniemi brand and are launching a textile collection this autumn. As you can imagine, their home is amazing. I could take all of those lights for example. Like that Alvar Aalto pendant in the photo above, come to mama!

But I have one complaint. Klaus and Mia have on their wall the painting by Jaakko Mattila that I have dreamt of! I'm so jealous. I wanted that painting. It would be perfect in our livingroom, above our sofa! Oh well, can't have everything in life... I guess if I can't have the painting, I'm glad it has found a good home with Klaus and Mia... *sigh*

Samaa kämppää ihailin minäkin viime viikolla. Ei ehkä meidän taloudesta uskoisi että tilaan Glorian kotia :D

Mutta voi Klaus minkä meni tekemään, viedä nyt jonkun toisen unelmataulu! ;)

Ture this is a beautiful home...thanks for sharing some insights into Finnish design and art. I think it often lags behind Swedish/Norwegian design or everything is lumped together and called "Scandinavian Design"...
