This wonderful villa we found on HusOHem.se proves that new home designs needn’t always be new per se. Case in point: this very contemporary-looking home was actually built in 1958 and is mostly decorated with vintage flea market finds that are items produced during last century’s fifties and sixties. The 270 square meter home in Växjö, Sweden, houses a wonderful family of four: Cecila, husband Stefan, and their two children, Stina and Emil. The family is not only tightly knit and loving, they also seem to have a great eye for design, as proven by the manner in which they decorated their home’s interiors. Colors abound against a predominantly neutral background, and the décor items such as murals, vases and wonderfully retro wallpaper, pop out and catch any visitor’s eye.
Like most new home designs, this one, too, is a blend of upscale and affordable, of old and new, of vintage and modern. Cecilia and Stefan love high-end furniture and decoration brands, but they don’t steer clear of IKEA either. Their home is also very tidy, neat and clutter free, thanks to the innovative storage solutions implemented – check out the storage niches for firewood in the open plan kitchen/day area. Color is used sparingly and thus very effectively, and, for maximum effect, is blended in with lots of humor and vitality. Feel free to admire the pictures and use them as inspiration for your very own interior design and decoration projects.
