• The first row of photos shows a kitchen inspired by fifties design and the patterns and concepts of quilting. We love that has a kind of retro feel without being kitschy. The layering of patterns and textures makes the kitchen chic, warm, and comfortable all at once.
• The farmhouse kitchen in the second row of photos was designed by Halling for a Swedish TV show. Of course the bones of the room are amazing (exposed beams!!), but the creative details really make the design. Look closely to find the hand-painted trim on the cabinets. The dining table is made of old floorboards, and it looks like Halling used a broken spring from an upholstered chair as a photo and message center.
