• Annaleena’s Home: A Stunning Display of Minimalism


    Annaleena Leino-Karlsson

    I’ve had Annalena’s home tour saved in my bookmarks for months now and as the stars seemed to have aligned this weekend and I got some time to myself (and some good reads) I decided to consume a handful of articles as if there wasn’t another weekend on the horizon.

    In case you’ve been living under a rock or the online world isn’t one of your priorities (kudos to you) . . . let me introduce you to the master stylist, vanguard photographer and genius product-and-everything-else designer that is the one and only Annaleena Leino-Karlsson. I could very well cut this post short and the images of her home would speak for themselves—but no, I cannot just shut up about something that has positively and massively impacted me, as I’m sure you know by now.

    Annaleena started as most of us do. A blogger with an immense passion for (in her case) interior, product design and minimalism. A short while after making her introduction into this world, she started creating her own products and soon getting recognized for her effortless style and work, which if I may say, are well worth our admiration.

    Her home intentionally speaks of what she’s all about. Not only is it unique—I mean, how couldn’t it be when she designs most of her art and pieces?—but her home is also a therapeutic work of art. Based in Ekerö, Sweden, this is one of those tours that get people talking. We all want to know the story behind it: the what’s, why’s, who’s and where’s.

    This open-concept home has been transformed into the perfect atmosphere for Annaleena’s work—the works of art of the minimalist design houses we all love and those of like-minded pioneers. The hall was converted into a private showroom for Analeena, while the stunning open living room combines some of her treasures: The classic leaf lamp by muuto, a large leather sofa, a stunning piece by Kristiina Haataja and her family-inherited piano make a perfect composition for the stunning nature-filled backdrop.

    From Annaleena’s front door to her jaw-dropping concrete patio, this home is one for the books. That is why I insist that minimalism is worth a try—It simply allows space for true greatness.
