At last, it’s the end of the week and I can take some time off, lay back and enjoy the few warm hours of the day somewhere out (of course!). Before doing that, I must share with you an exciting home from Sweden.
It is the house of Kenneth Kvarnström, an internationally acclaimed Swedish modern dance choreographer, former director of Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, now freelancer with his own dance company K Kvarnström & co.
The early 20th century house was in such a dilapidated state, that it basically ruled out any competition. But there was so much work to do! He had to remove a huge amount of wooden boards and add a completely new facade and an extension with French windows in the back of the house. It is falugrå on the outside, a warm tone between grey and black, typical of Scandinavian houses.
Inside we can see lots of designer pieces in addition to nicely restored antique finds and industrial elements. It is definitely the home of a gifted man: whatever he chances upon, will turn into an objet d’art or work tool. Let’s take a look at his home:
