A PEACEFUL SPACE

The ultimate simplicity of Finnish design is what makes this airy country home a peaceful and tranquil environment. Homeowner Ulla Koskinen, designer for Finnish firms like Marimekko and Artek, worked alongside her husband to create this magnificent open-layout floorplan for their home—where they both live and work. Using concrete, wood and glass, combined with mostly a gray and black palette, they achieved a very clean yet rustic feel. Much of the wood used in the construction came from fallen trees around the property. "The best thing about living here is the wide-open space, the peaceful feeling and the calming views. And that we are now more aware and sensitive to change of seasons,” explained Ulla to Nuevo Estilo.

I typically shy away from so many cool tones, but this is an example of how warm it can be. I think it's all that wood and the large windows. I feel very comforting and wrapped in nature in this interior space. It is truly spectacular and feels lived in and loved. The tub with the snowy scene outside is just lovely!
