renovated old school building in sweden


Gunnel Sahlin is a designer for IKEA. She lives in this former school building in Sweden. The house, situated between a forest and a lake, has been beautifully restored. Gunnel has decorated her home in that typical Swedish style (simple, functional and beautiful). Most of the furniture used are traditional pieces of Scandinavian origin.
