Rustic coziness in Sweden


First a farm and then a school, this house from 1901 in Hjortnäs outside Leksand was not built as a residence. But with a ceiling height of 3.6 meters, designer and calligrapher Ylva Sharp and her husband Daniel saw potential in this house and started a major renovation. They demolished a few walls to open space and make a generous kitchen with dining area. The old wood stove with a fireplace have become the kitchen’s heart. They used calm tones as grey and white, and the old school of 310 square meters has now become a bright and spacious home. « I like to change and renew at home with colours according to the season, by switching textiles, painting some furniture and take in seasonal plants » says Ylva. Carpets, cushions and tapestries are Ylva’s own design.
