Swedish photographer Bruno Basic sent us a set of wonderful photos of a contemporary home he photographed in Sweden. This is the story behind the inspiration and a few details about the materials and owner: “In 2011, I had the honor to photograph a house that was “modern” as my clients described it. What I saw at the driveway to the house I noticed that this house was a little different than regular houses that I see around me. This was more square and appeared to be incredibly well designed. I had never been in contact or met the owner of the house and honestly, I thought it lived a young design-interested couple there. But I was wrong. The house was owned by a middle-aged businessman who had exquisite taste for design. He had designed the house himself and was very proud of it. The house has magnificent view over the city of Kalmar and the sea that surrounds it. Everything in the house was exclusive and the materials came from local producers. The floor was made only a few miles away. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do.” We did enjoy them, how about you?

It’s not always warm or sunny in some parts of Canada but this apartment will definitely give the owners some cheerfulness as it’s bright and colorful. A fusion of art deco details with something traditional and a little bit pop art style. Bright cushions, coffee tables, interesting pictures – all these details make the space lively and fresh. Rugs, wooden floors and comfortable furniture make the apartment cozy. The furniture and color of the walls are neutral to highlight bright accents. The chandelier in the bedroom is fantastic! Golden base and green bubbles look very unusual together and remind of summer.
