Yesterday I was wondering around a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) store in search of a tool and I found myself mulling over how good Scandinavians tend to be at fixing things around the home – and how this has inspired me over the years. The truth is, a lot of things that require attention are relatively simple to fix – and it can feel really empowering to get out a tool box – saving yourself time and money in the process.
The entirely unique kitchen cabinets in white and wood were designed by Mette to capitalise on space.
This style of built-in cabinetry (made by Henrik) is ideal for small bedrooms as it makes use of every inch.
What an inspiring home.
It would be so useful to be able to whip up incredible cabinets and storage units at whim, don’t you think? And of course, Mette’s eye for design is simply wonderful too!
Do you have enough storage in your home, or has Mette and Henrik’s house inspired you to add more?
Perhaps more importantly, how much do DIY do you do? Are you the type to get out a toolbox if something needs fixing or do you prefer to call a handyman? I’ve learnt to dabble (although Per does the majority!) – but we’re on nowhere near the level of building incredible units like the ones in this home!
Would you like to feel inspired by other architect’s homes today? Here are some lovely ones:
Have a great start to the week friends!
