Each week, Tommy Lei of @mybelonging takes us through a different room in his home.

Gosh, I love this room. It’s the room that made me fall in love with this house at first sight.

I knew I wanted to cook, entertain, and forge unforgettable memories here. And we have so far, despite the quarantine. For our small pod of two.

There is so much warmth in our Scandinavian-inspired dining room from every angle; the dewy sunlight oozes into every crevice. I bought and sourced pieces by Design House Stockholm, Normann Copenhagen, and Artek from Finnish Design Shop—brands I had discovered and swooned over during my travels throughout Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Helsinki.

Grove by vitruvi is in constant rotation as a scent of choice here, because I wanted to marry the room’s inherent coziness with a hint of nature.
