Good design is universal. Swedish site Vart Nya Hem shows us the home of architect Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, located outside of Copenhagen, which displays some restrained updates that make the building habitable for a modern family while maintaining some of the original character of the place.
The exterior had been in disrepair and so was redone in the home's original style. But inside, light and space were created by removing dividing walls between rooms and painting the various wood surfaces a crisp white color. The amount of stuff kept in the home is extremely minimal, and furnishings take on both functional and decorative purposes. There is something beautiful about the way this home incorporates both old and new elements to create a style that is truly unique.
Do you like this minimalist look in an old home?
