Swedish Interior Designer, Marie Olsson Nylander’s home is situated in a village in south of Sweden.  Her first thoughts of the 2,260 square foot landmark, which was soon to become “Our Wish Home”, were less than impressive.  During an interview featured on Deutsche Welle, she stated, “It was dark.  It was cold.  The house smelled old.   The kitchen was oily and horrible.”  She certainly has a knack for taking a less than desirable space and turning it into a dream home.

The kitchen is also home to the living room. White walls and pale floors lend to an airy and open space.  Huge windows, formerly from a tobacco factory, offer plenty of sunlight, even during the winter months.
