H I T H E R E !

I’m Miia, the founder of MH Creative Studio, an interior design studio based in Brno Czech Republic.

I collaborate with expats and other like-minded people and help them to take their place from stale to stunning.

Living your life far away from home can be fantastic, but it is also demanding. Your house or flat shouldn’t just be a place where you rest your weary head at night. It should be a place where you can be yourself. One word. Home.

I know what expat life is like. I’ve moved to a new country. Twice, actually. During the 5 years I lived in London, I moved 5 times and managed to make all the flats I lived in look and feel like home.

I know that the challenges expats encounter are different than the ones natives come across. There might be a language barrier. It may be difficult to know where to shop. Or how to get there if you don’t own a car. If you need something custom made or personalized, things get even more complicated. How to communicate your needs to the vendors who often don’t speak English?

I also know that your needs are different. You might be living in an flat that is furnished by your landlord. Even though you know you won’t be staying there forever, you’d still want the space to be functional, look great and make you feel like home. You want the space look like you, but you don’t want make permanent changes to the property. You might need a safe space to store some (ugly) furniture while you fill the space with furniture you actually love!

You may have just moved in and wondering how to make the space feel like a home for the time you will be staying in Brno, or you have decided to settle here, bought a property and need someone to design your home and coordinate the whole process. Where ever you are, I’m ready to meet you there and help you save time and some cash.

I am passionate about design and homes with great style and a ton of personality. I want to bring interior design accessible to people no matter where they live and and what their budget is. My approach is very solution focused and hands on. The services I offer are suitable for both home owners and renters. I also work with clients all over Europe via my e-design service.

I am originally from Finland and I have worked in London as a commercial and residential designer. Currently I have settled in Brno. During the day I work in the corporate world and when the clock hits five I put my designer hat on.

I love to shop and source items in unexpected places like flea market, bazaars and car booth sales. I am also a big fan of DIY and re-purposing old furniture and items. To me the beautiful and interesting homes are the ones that look lived in and reflect the personality and lives of their owners.

In my blog I like to share design inspiration, try some recipes, write about Scandinavian life & style and share a glimpse of my life as an expat in Brno
