The book is born of interior dreams, visions and ideas that are intriguingly intertwined. We get to know Helsinki's homes and villas, where the classic European interior style meets the unique soft Nordic light, the sense of coziness and the proportionate architecture.
These dreams of its inhabitants are located in the most beautiful places of our capital, in or around the districts known for their historical architecture. At the same time, the work is a story of an insatiable love of insanely stunning color combinations as well as patterns and fabrics that make the mind touch and feel. We want to introduce you to milieus that differ from the traditional Nordic style of interior design and delight with unique spaces that almost magically invite their residents. These homes feel good to have because they are tailored to meet all the wishes of the residents. Therefore, they are important and relevant to them.
We open the doors to a total of eight timelessly beautiful homes. But why is the name of the book just that Hidden gems.Because families have only opened their doors to the pages of this book.
