Dear Old Home Book
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.
Frida Steiner is a photographer, interior designer and stylist, who loves to capture beautiful homes. Inspired by characterful interiors time and again, she also opens the door to her own home in an old wooden villa, as she leads readers to visit charming houses around Finland. May the journey begin!
