Isabel B Helsinki

While I was wandering around Helsinki looking at its delightful buildings I found Isabel B, in its half underground location.  The shop looked fascinating from the window so I went in to investigate.

This shop has everything I love, beautiful fabrics, interior decoration, home accessories and gorgeous gifts.  It is a wonderful jumble of  things.  The French owner has gathered a great collection from all over the world.  Despite this, there was a distinctly Scandinavian flavour to everything and I think the shop would be very popular with Helsinki residents.  Finland is famous for design and Isabel B would fit right in.

I love the hat

  1. Yum Yum Yum!

  2. Great photos! I want that yellow hat.

    • I’m sure Isabel would love to sell it to you.

  3. Oh I have such a greedy soul. I absolutely loved the photos of Isabel B. But the hats made me giggle because Jim always looks so soignee in hats and as I scrolled down and the brown hat came into view I thought he must have bought one, but then when his face was revealed I thought he did not look well!

    • The hat wearer is a little hairier than Jim.

  4. I love the blue tea set!
    Thanks for sharing Deb!
