A pine-clad interior in Sweden

There are so many interior design projects around the media these days. Other blogs write about them a lot, so I rarely do. But here is a simple interior that I just have to share. It is a simple pine-clad dining room in Sweden, perched atop a hill in Gothenburg. This is home to Per Bornstein and his daughter and it was originally featured on Dwell’s Big Ideas for Small Spaces issue. Per designed the space which consists mainly of raw pine lumber which adorn the walls. The simplicity and honesty of this material in this space gives it a commanding presence. It is raw but so elegant. Per says “I like the idea that everything is what it is. In the end, it makes the house easy to understand.” One beautiful material, simply and honestly applied makes all the difference, I think.
