Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Studio Ina & Matt

We are in the middle of a heatwave here in Sweden with temperatures around 33° C (91°F), which is very unusual for us Northern peeps, so everyone including me are totally overwhelmed by the heat, just laying around on beaches trying to cool off with whatever we can find. So there are lots of icecream, cold foot baths, wet towels and iced drinks going around! Sitting inside a house with no airconditioning isn't too appealing really, and having a hot laptop in your knee for more than a couple if minutes is just out of the question! So therefore, a very quick post today:

This is a home and studio designed by Ina & Matt, a Dutch designer duo with everything from interiors to visual identities on their plate.

    this is amazing. & i bet it would be the perfect place to hide out when the heatwave strikes! the wood would be so cooling. singapore is summer all year round & i've gotten pretty much used to hot weather but these few months have been crazily sweltering :( i swear, the earth is trying to tell us something

    Vad är golvet gjort av - är det polerad cement? Otroligt vackert.

    I like the use of wood as well. You can see the old building amongst the new. Really charming and serene.

    Nice collection of pictures of this home and studio. Designer Ina and Matt need a big hand for this. These pictures are a great resource of inspiration for studio design lovers. The use of wood has been done in a modern and wise way keeping in mind the hot Sweden temperature.
