Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Old school

Found this former school, now made into a home, in Sköna Hem. Got to love the high ceilings and huge windows, the mix of vintage and new designs, romantic pastels and minimalistic white.

    The piano looks great! I just bought an old piano for almost nothing. It´s crazy that people are just throwing those away now. I´ve seen ads that they give away fabulous rokokopianos.

    The though of buying an old school and turning it into a home is such a fun idea - I've been thinking of it for years! These folks did a great job; much more modern than most school-home remodeling projects I see. :)

    I think the dining table is amazing. And I definitely want a glass backsplash in the next (hah!) home. This is a beautiful space.
