There is a house in Svinninge, Sweden, who blends in beautifully with its surroundings. A 200-square-meter of living space built by sustainably by Martin Lydén, designed to age beautifully, and made to last. It is simple and minimal, modern, and understated.

Inside, wood surfaces have been treated with linseed oil and beeswax. Most of the furniture was created with waste materials after the construction, and most others are vintage finds. Selected textiles are from wool, linen, and hemp. The curtains are made from recycled plastic collected at sea, from Luxaflex. Decorative elements kept to a minimum and handpicked for their quality and timelessness. Everything here, from the construction materials to the finishing touches, was chosen in the name of simplicity, sustainability, and durability. And this is precisely what makes it so beautiful!
