Hello again. How are you on this lovely winter day?
I am so so excited and so so happy to share this home with you. Firstly, because it’s in my country and secondly because I made the photo shoot. My first interior shoot actually.
It is the family home of a very good friend, who is nearly as much into Scandinavian chic as I am (on my side, though, it is called OBSESSION).
So, here’s a little info about the house.
It was built in 1998, but it has undergone a serious renovation both inside and out in 2015. With respect to architecture, the house is a typical example of suburban dwellings outside of metropolitan areas. Quiet neighbourhood, a garden of a reasonable size and a huge plus: hiking trails within arm’s reach. Our small town is at the boundary of a nature reserve.
As for the photos, this time I was focusing mainly on the details versus the entire house or larger sections of it. Still learning here.
The grey Philippe Starck Masters bar stools are lined up in a nice orderly fashion.
Note the interesting texture of the wall tiles.
Altogether they form an uneven surface as a playful contrast to the smooth, dark grey countertop.
The dining area includes two stunning pendants designed by British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert.
Another fine piece, this time in the reading corner: the Uncle Jim armchair made of polycarbonate – design also by Philippe Starck.
FLOS IC Table Lamp – 2014 design Michael Anastassiades.
The iconic 1959 WOODS wallpaper (design Michael Clark) adds a little Nordic birch forest vibe to the master bedroom.
And not just the bedroom, as you could see further up.
The mustard Masters by Philippe Starck in the guest room.
