The House Story

Writing a so called house-story is a challenge. Text and pics must blend together into a portrait of someones most beloved home. It takes passion and commitment ”to make a home out of a house” and the people we visit have made that effort. We always feel privileged to be invited into a private home, and trusted with the task to capture its feel.

Into the kitchen

The kitchen is an important space in a Scandi home. It is much more than just a room for preparing food. In the kitchen you eat and spend time with family and friends. You work, read, relax, play and do your homework. Hence the Scandi kitchen is well decorated and carefully taken care of.
