a house in finland


You will love this house! Ceramic artist Karin Widnas lives in a artist village south west from Helsinki, Finland. Her gorgeous house / atelier is built and decorated in a modern Finnish style.

The simple forms are similar to the Japanese style of architecture and decorating. The ceramic wall (image above), separating living room and dining room, is created by Karin herself.

Chair “Diamond” from Harry Bertoia (Knoll), a design icon from the 50′s, serves as a bedside table in the (serene) bedroom.

Every object in the bathroom is simply beautiful.

Also in the kitchen beautiful ceramic tiles (here in black) cover the wall.

Despite the cold weather, there is a large outdoor living area. Isn’t that wooden table gorgeous?!

  1. I always check in to see your latest weblog entry and always leave with new inspiration!
    Thanks for posting such excellent images. I’m so relieved that you are continuing this wonderful blog :-))))

  2. Beautiful!!! LOVE the rough wooden table – and the bathroom. That’s style…

  3. It always amazes me that the scandinavian use of wood and the japanese´use are so similar, the warm minimalist quality! Anyway, love it. Any idea where the white lounge chairs and ottomans come from? They are similar to Togo but much sleeker and I like them more for it.
