Finnish Forest House
I came across this house recently in The New York Times.
Not surprisingly, the carefully furnished (aka, sparse interior) caught my eye. I couldn’t help but wonder: is there any artwork on the walls?
With each photo, the notion became less and less likely. Granted, in a house that doesn’t have running water, I’m not entirely surprised.
Clearly, there is an intention of simplicity in this home. Yet for conversation’s sake, my question to you is: If this was your house, would you hang art? If not, so be it. But if so, what kind of art and where?
Or, is the view of the dense forest outside the windows framed by the clean lines of the house, art in itself?
I must admit, I’d love to spend a weekend away in a place like this. Would you?
