For those of us who LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dressing up our homes with a speckle of industrial and vintage throughout, step inside Interior Designer Johanna Flyckt’s cozy renovated 50-year old home and see if you don’t get the same warm feeling inside that we did. Johanna was raised in an artistic family and it shows. She now promotes creativity and change in her own three children. She loves the hunt for furniture and objects to upcycle. Take a peek inside and be inspired at how she creatively decorates her personal space with finds from antique shops, flea markets and special keepsakes.

Orange overhead lights

Orange overhead lights were once heat lamps for pigs. Metal chairs (Jeanne d’Arc Living), wooden chairs repainted flea market finds. The daily paper hangs from a clamp on the kitchen wall.  She utilizes old lasts (not shown) to hang headphones.  Her husband built the dish rack which holds antique finds.

The kitchen, previously the dining room, allows easy transport of the morning coffee to the porch. Built-in cabinets with glass panes from her grandmother’s yard door.  Repainted metal letters and framed children’s drawings (opposite wall).

Joanna found the sofa in an ad.  She painted it with white water-based paint then distressed.  Her work station is close to the homemade shelves filled with inspirational books.  A window partition is used to create a more open feel. Birdcages in lieu of curtains.

All of the bedrooms are white and turquoise, except for the spring roses in a jar. Alarm clock purchased at a market in Italy.
