THREE YEARS ago, we featured the country home of photographer Laura Muthesius and stylist Nora Eisermann, both from the blog, Our Food Stories. It was a cosy mid-century kitchen that overlooked the ocean in the Skåne area of the Swedish countryside. This home is a former schoolhouse located in a village north-east of Berlin that has been in Laura’s family since she was a child. The couple completely renovated the space⏤floors, ceilings, windows, doors, and partitions⏤creating a calm and neutral space heavily influenced by Scandinavian design. There are raw, unfinished walls and herringbone floors, brass pendant lamps and cane chairs; clay and bouclé, and wood, stone and metal; linen and wool, ceramic tiles and boiserie… Scroll through for a glimpse.
The juxtaposition of the brass pendant light against the unfinished wall is wonderful, as is the pairing of cane and other wooden chairs against the light-coloured walls. Texture plays a big part in this home, creating a warm, natural and organic feel.
