This open kitchen / living room in Scandinavian style with birch plywood, white paint and a hint of mint was designed by the architect Lina Lagerstrom from Septembre. Birch wood furniture defines the kitchen from the rest of the room, and the walls, ceiling, and floor are white. The tall cabinets surround the bathroom door; The low seat that separates the kitchen and living area is a storage space with a removable wooden plate for bottles of wine and water. As good as new subway tiles and red strings of light provide the desired color. A trio of mismatched chairs surround the marble-topped table. It’s a great place to cook while you watch the kids – well thought out and functional, and it has great views too.
