More from Iceland

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 converted hospital

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.
