I am crazily in love with Scandinavian designs. Marimekko is one of my beloved Scandinavian brands. After my kitchen remodeling project is done later on this year, the wish list items below will definitely become part of the kitchen collection. Not sure whether my best friends/my hubby will get these wish list items for me or not. =P
