let your hair down will ya

so, this swedish designer really knows how to break the rules and do what is organic and natural and also seems to be quite practical. i can really appreciate the clean clutter look.

the stairs in the middle of the room could seem out of place, but because they do not have railings (do not scale these while under the influence for sure) and are open underneath, they play a nice role in separating the kitchen for the main room. eclectic indeed.

i am going to allow myself to have a few piles going this weekend and see how it feels. lived in maybe...imagine that.

I love the use of the lawyer's bookcase in the kitchen as they usually hold law books. I will admit, I could see myself tumbling down the steps with a tray of tea and crumpets - there's no handrail! LOL!
