In July I visited a housing fair for the first time in my life. As building or renovating our own dream house isn’t something for the immediate future, it was mostly interior inspiration I was looking for. I was also very interested in the ecological and sustainable wood building projects at the Seinäjoki housing fair.
There was something for all tastes: From the minimalist wood cabins to mansions that looked like they were extracted straight from a scene in the Bold and the Beautiful. Here are my favourites, prepare yourself for loads of pictures!
My absolute favourite at the fair was a modern ecological wood house “Kotola” which we almost missed because of its location just off the main path ways of the fair grounds. I fell in love with the house designed by architect Tapani Takkunen, the interior design and ceramics by Eeva Takkunen and Tuija Koponen. The house had an updated soul of a wooden house. I could’ve moved in right there and then!
My other favourites included Moroccan influences, wild house plants, painted tiles and use of natural materials.
