The Times We Had in Talinn

November 14, 2014

I have some good news this Friday – I have chosen the winner of Annie Sloan’s new book Room Recipes for Style and Colour (Thank You, Cico Books!).

I used random number generator to determine the luckiest person this week and the winner is… Melissa Ann Roberge, who is very fond of Traditional Swedish style. Congratulations! I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did (please e-mail me you address – decorartuk@gmail.com).

Thank you EVERYONE who commented, don’t be disappointed and make sure you try to win this book on Lobster & Swan or Such Pretty Things (they’ll be announcing their winners next week).

Meanwhile… I thought I’d share some of my favourite photographs from my trip to Talinn (the capital of Estonia). I went there last September; I bet it’s much colder there now…

Have you hear of Estonia?

Here are a few random facts about this small country on the Baltic coast:

– Estonia was the first country in the world to use online political voting.

– Estonia is the least religious country in the world with only 14% of the population claiming any religious beliefs.

– Estonia has a population of 1.3 million and is one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe.

– Estonia has the highest number of meteorite craters per land area in the world.

– Out of the nearly 200 countries in the world, Estonia ranks in the second place with its literacy rate of 99.8%.

If you’ve read this, now it’s time to see what their capital looks like.
