Grete Prytz Kittelsen's home in Norway recently got sold. The "Queen of Scandinavian Design" as she often was called, died in Sept. 2010. The house, that her former husband through 15 years, the well known architect Arne Korsmo built, is a masterpiece itself, and the house and interior has been kept in the Mid-Century style. The couple both used it as a home and a place to work. They gathered their artist friends and collegues here for seminars and exhibitions. An important inspiration came from natural light, open spaces, large windows and ceilings, and a close contact with nature around. The home in these images is quite empty, not many personal items are left, but the architecture is brilliant, and the use of teak throughout make the ambiance very vivid.
