Dear Old Home - Nordic Houses with Charm, published by Cozy Publishing, takes the reader on a journey all over Finland, opening doors to homes where the past and future are present simultaneously. Written by photographer, interior designer and visual artist Frida Steiner, the book introduces old buildings that have been turned into modern-day homes: an old elementary school, an atmospheric cabin and a former warehouse converted into a home, all places that already have a history, now ready to create new stories. No matter if you live in a centuries-old house or a brand-new residence, these charming photographs and beautiful texts will surely give inspiration for your own interior and home.
Dear Old Home – Nordic Houses with Charm opens the doors to beautiful Finnish homes where the past and future intertwine. The homes range from a rose-hued log house to a spacious loft-style home by the sea, an Art Nouveau villa, an old village school, a former courtyard storehouse and a world heritage site.
The homeowners have a soft spot for the ambience of period houses, which doesn’t have to mean compromising on today’s comforts. Timeworn textures are celebrated, as the essentials are updated to modern standards. The resulting delicate, layered mood is finessed with the owners’ personal touches.
