Sometimes keeping it super simple can be the best design idea. If something transcends time for almost 50 years and looks just as good as it did in year 1, that’s a serious accomplishment. And that is what Jens Risom’s prefab home is all about. Located on Block Island near Rhode Island, the wooden prefab was constructed in the 1960s and has only 1 change…

A warm fireplace in the heart of the home.
Windows from floor to ceiling allow for amazing natural light.
The gray shingled facade is adorned by a bright R that was from of one of Jens delivery truck.
He had owned a furniture design company.
…the windows were updated just a few years ago. (can you believe that’s the only change?!) The gorgeous and understated A-frame style prefab was picked out of a catalog and has stayed in the family for all these years. I feel you can tell there’s tons of love poured into this simple space. What do you think of this home?

Tell me, what is your favorite TV house? I loved The Cosby Show’s brownstone growing up, as I lived on a ranch and always dreamed of taking my ubiquitous prom photo on that perfect white staircase. And isn’t it fascinating to see how family homes have grown and changed throughout history?

Many of us love the look and feel of Scandianvian design and Sweden certainly houses this gorgeous look. Many of the homes and apartments in this island country are full of beautiful Scandinavian design ideals. One special Stockholm loft is full of design moments and one of the best open space living areas that I have seen. Let’s take a look at a few images of this stunning space.
The open space is perfect for showcasing a long row of wooden beams that perfectly contrast against the white palette. Another neat detail – the colored accent walls that provide a very cool design accent in the loft. The open space concept is truly highlighted in this pretty home and the furniture and accents anchored in the home. Click here to see the full house tour.
