The sauna

So, the most holy of holy on an island, the sauna, has been in very little use for the past few years. When the stove finally retired last fall we decided it was time for the very much needed facelift.

The facelift however turned out to be a full scale renovation as we found mold in the walls and a few more unpleasant surprises. The builders were awfully late and now, in November I can conclude we will not be using the sauna this year. However, the guestroom is almost done and I can now reveal the first pictures of the before and after.

So here’s the before:

And here is the after:

The chairs and tables are weathered teak, something we’ve had from before, the net I found at an antiques fair and the bed is Ikea. The cow hide I got from a friend who wished it a better home and the handira is from zoco home. Most of all I am in love with the industrial tripod lamp, I bought it from a dutch seller trough 1st dibs. The reindeer hides I bought at Kankurin Tupa and the table ware is Broste, found at Stockmann.

So there, what do you think?
