‘The nordic way’ “A lover of whitewashed linen, green juices and flirty kaftans”
A visual sanctuary made with a touch of nordic zest, dreamy travels and an ideology of self-improvement, this au naturel site is your route to healthy living and finding joy in the ordinary. It is the small things in life (and a great bouquet of peonies) that create something extraordinary.
With a twinkle in my eye, I have a love for white silk blouses and the smell of lavender and lemons. I am Hanna Kristiina Amy, born and raised in Finland. Xo amy’s combines the beauty of Scandinavian simplicity by exploring little delicious things in life that inspire me. May this be fashion, interior or cooking, this lifestyle blog is a journey of moments that combine to create your own bliss. With a blend of stylish inspirations and a balance of well-being, one outfit at a time, I hope to motive everyone to become better versions of themselves, including myself. Life is good.
This is me; a perfectionist (or control freak) that loves designing in neutral tones with minimal contrast. I love French antiques, linen and aged mirrors. Interior design is a bit of a passion and I am confident in my own style, that is classic and timeless. I love setting the table and could possibly start a little restaurant with all the porcelain, cutlery and crystal I have tucked away in our over flowing kitchen. I love a frothy cappuccino, fresh blooms, white outfits and a fabulous handbag. Even though I love a glass of champagne every now and then, I live a healthy lifestyle, go crazy for smoothies and love spending time in our clean nordic forests.
I love to cook and inspire sharing recipes with you all. I love Finnish berries, avocados and dark green leaves but the greatest inspiration from food, comes from our travels. May this be sea urchins from Puglia or handmade tortellinis from Sul Mincio, food plays a large role in our lives. I am a city gal but enjoy the countryside. I yearn to travel and have a definite soft spot for Italy. I have a relentless wanderlust for discovering new hidden destinations and sharing them with you, collecting moments that ultimately give me a new found lust for life.
I am married to my wonderful husband (Mr. N) and have a beautiful little baby Lucas and a young dog Argentino called Siena. We are currently in the midst of planning and building our forever home out of the city, but the permits are taking longer than anticipated. One day, our seafront house and a kitchen garden will be ready and I cannot wait to share the journey with you.
My true passion however builds from photography, styling and visualizing. A photo tells a story, far stronger than words. I hope this creative outlet brings a smile to your face and makes life stand still for a while. I love interacting with my readers, so please feel free to comment and give feedback.
