At Housing Fair Finland co-op

Last week we left our son to my parents and headed to Kokkola. The last time we were at Housing Fair Finland was in 2006 in Kauklahti, Espoo. That day was exactly like this one: lots of houses, lots of people, hot weather, big belly and lots of vomiting.

I was planning to take a lot of pictures. Unfortunately the picture card of our camera stopped being co-operative during the day so these are the ones I got. We didn't find so many things we liked but instead we now know what we are never going to get. We don't like homes that are too white, too gray or too brown. We like colours. We don't like children's rooms with just pink and blue in them. We have always liked lamps like Tuplakupla and Lokki but were tired to see them everywhere. We don't want anything to be too "clinical" - for example kitchens that are all over white. Although we are getting white kitchen cabinets to our new home but with black home appliance and orange ceramic tiles.

In one house I got happily surprised. This kind of clinic I would like to have. It would be so great to work at home - especially with an ocean view.

In Seve Ehituse house we found a wallpaper we would like to get to our son's room. I have tried to send an email to Seve Majad and ask about the wallpaper but they haven't emailed me back and it's been several days already. So I'm asking you: what's the name of this wallpaper with forest animals and where could we get it?

After all, the day was very important to us. We had started dating exactly ten years ago.
