Entries in Iceland (6)
I am stoked that the latest issue of Home & Delicious, an e-mag from Iceland is now live! It features a couple of homes decked out for the holidays, as well as some UNREAL recipes that I am drooling over (doesn't help that I'm starving) and really want to try out. So here's a little peek of some of the interior shots, gorgeous as always by Gunnar Sverrisson. I had to sneak in a couple of the food photos too. :)
I am so stoked to have devoured the latest issue of Home & Delicious, created by Iceland's powerhouse couple Gunnar Sverrisson (a photographer) and Halla Bára Gestsdóttir (a designer). I featured a couple of homes from their first issue here and here and I can't wait to show you one from issue #2 (there are so many incredible homes featured I had a hard time deciding one one to blog). Magical photos and beautiful spaces, as I have come to expect from my new favourite online shelter magazine. This home is a 36 m2 cabin on a lake, build in the 70's and moved from it's original to current location in the 90's, then extended and electricity added. The predominantly white/black/blue colour scheme and casual vibe is perfect for the rugged surroundings.
I had to share this home, also from Home & Delicious (photos by Gunnar), as it is serene like the last one but has quite a bit more drama and elegance. It is the home of decorative painter Auður Skúla and her family. The grey and white colour palette is beautiful, and that kitchen is absolutely dreamy. *sigh*
A couple weeks ago I was perusing Victoria's always awesome blog and came across a post about a new online magazine out of Iceland called Home & Delicious by husband and wife team Gunnar Sverrisson (a photographer) and Halla Bára Gestsdóttir (a designer). The photography is stunning, so I had to share some of this magazine with you, as I am a sucker for online mags and gorg photos.
In the first issue they featured a wonderful conversion on an old hospital in Þingeri, that required alot of work - heating, electrical, windows, exterior doors. The homeowners did it right, and had the new windows and doors made to mimic the look of the old ones. Old floorboards were discovered beneath layers of flooring and were re-sanded. The result is a really beautiful, historical home that is simple decorated, but so effective as the decor does not distract from the beauty of the building. Serenity now.
