Name: Viivi Arela
Location: Helsinki, Finland
Size: 230 sq ft room in a 805 sq ft apartment
Years lived in: 1 year; Rented
Living and working in a shared rental apartment hasn’t hindered Viivi’s creativity in personalizing her space. Pastel hues, simple silhouettes and inspiring color-coordinated vignettes lend to a peaceful and personal urban atmosphere, without (potentially landlord-upsetting) permanent modifications.
