It takes a lot of imagination and love to create a beautiful family house like this one. Airy white interiors furnished with vitage pieces, decorated only with objects meaningful to the owners - exotic art 'souvenirs' brought from all of their journeys. Natural materials create cosy, warm atmosphere: wooden panels, soft woollen carpet, leather and velvet seating. All contrasted, spiced up with industrial metal: old, flaking coffe table, black, oversized floor lamp. Simple, functional, down to earth, but absolutely unpretentious beauty: the essence of Scandinavian style.
When Marie Olsson Nylander saw the building for the first time, she thought: "Never". The shabby, 70's house in distant Arlid, by the rocky Swedish coast, didn't seem appealing to the successful, busy city couple. But surprisingly to all, it turned out to be a place where everything has found its balance and perfect harmony.
