Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

The home and studio of Paula Leen

I found an email in my inbox last week from a reader named Paula Leen. She wrote that she had seen her own kitchen on my blog and sent me the picture. When I posted it I had no idea it was from a real kitchen, I thought it was a studio shot. But nope, this is Paula's kitchen, with cabinets built from the sink and flooring from her old kitchen. Great idea, isn't it?

I begged her to send me more pictures of her home, and yes, they were just as amazing as I thought they would be! Look for yourselves. The play with light and dark surfaces, the mix of natural materials and the sparsely furnished rooms adds up to make one of the most beautiful houses I have seen.



The photos below are from her studio, where she makes wool felt objects for her brand Poetryworld. On the wall are bags full of wool for future projects, and the old iron bed is covered with Paula's own designs.

    Very cool place indeed. I like dark part of the whole thing. It feeles very movie-like somehow. I think, it is very cosy in there - add right temperature and sublime light, when you come home in the evening. Places don't have to be over decorated to be cozy. Pine forest is good example.
