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.
