The Svenskt Tenn design philosophy speaks to my heart:
“There’s nothing wrong with mixing old and new, with combining different furniture styles, colours and patterns. Anything that is in your taste will automatically fuse to form an entire relaxing environment. A home does not need to be planned down to the smallest detail or contrived; it should be an amalgamation of the things that its owner loves and feels at home with.”
That's exactly how I feel when I'm at home. It's snowing today and I'm at work.
