Industrial Charm

This beautiful villa in Dalama, Sweden, is a stark black and white treasure filled with auction bargains, crafts from local silversmiths and potters and plenty of industrial charm. Built in the 1930s, the home is decorated with a fun mix of furniture from different eras and styles, and with a simple and clean approach that makes it quite unique. I'm enamored with the unexpected touches of humor, like the quote prints on the living room wall and the splashes of yellow here and there. The spiral staircase that leads to the living space was refurbished from an old church tower from the town. How cool is that? BTW, if you dig the look of this pad and would like to bring it home, check out a few pieces at the end of this post that will help you achieve it.

Thanks for posting these pics. I've seen a couple of them dotted around the blogosphere over the last couple of weeks, and I've loved them individually, but putting them in the context of the home has made me love them a whole heap more!

Nice house ! The name of the place is called Dalarna, not Dalarma.
