Finally it´s time introduce our home to you, so…welcome! This apartment is located in Southern Helsinki and it was built in 1908. We renovated it 3,5 years ago with love and passion, respecting the old style and spirit this place has. It was not a small project, because we wanted to focus on every detail, but it definitely was worth it, because we love the outcome.
I love the old wooden floor that snaps and crackles under my feet and the old tile stove that gives us warmth during the winter months. I love the high rooms and the high windows with deep ledges. I don´t know what it is about these old Jugend-style houses, but to me they are just magical. And of course I love marble countertops that we installed into the kitchen. Actually I love everything in this apartment.
Unfortunately every good story has an ending and so does this one. Because now it´s time for us to put our precious home for sale. Selling our home is a tough but a necessary decision, because we need a bigger, more spacious apartment for the future.
More about that later…now it is time to let the pictures speak for themselves! What do you think?
You’ll find more pictures here.
