Our living room is art nouveau style and I have got inspiration for the friezes from Kalevala, which is our national epic,
which was very popular in Finnish art around the changing of the 19th and 20th century.
There are several nature goddesses (or spirits) in Kalevala, and nine of them will be featured on our living room friezes.
The inspiration for the style is from Mucha's paintings.
