Another dreamy home from Marie Claire Maison

5 05 2009

As promised more beautiful images from French Marie Claire Maison.

I adore the selection of homes featured in each issue.  They finds the most incredible abodes, tucked away in the most remote parts of the world. This particular dwelling I’m sharing with you today is on a picturesque lake in Finland called Saimaa.  The home is owned by Ritva Puotila (who makes amazing textile installation).   Furnished in the gentlest of ways with vintage and handmade Finnish furniture and textiles, Ritva’s home is breathtaking…

The article’s writer, Marion Bley, calls it a modern day summer home for the Robinson’s, with only the bare necessities – there is no electricity, and no hot water. There is however, a separate dwelling for bathing, which is down by the water’s edge…

Marion writes (something like this), “like the tableware, glassware and linen, the furniture, though sparse, has been chosen for it’s beauty and simplicity…”

LOVE interior and architectural design and can’t wait until we have our own place again!!
this story reminds me of our little house in the woods, though definitely not picture worthy.
i have my eye on a wonderful piece of thrift furniture and it will be the only thing we’ll have for our new place, wherever that may be.
can’t necessarily refurnish and/or decorate the back of a truck 🙂
miss you and when are you coming to NY?!
