Gert Wingårdh's farmhouse renovation draws inspiration from a mix of rustic and modern design elements. The seventeenth century home boasts a contemporary interior that is accented with retro elements that reference its past.

While most of the home's decor relies on minimalism, its original wood paneling references its history and is displayed in white, warm wood and lime green finishes. Infused with floor-to-ceiling windows and an inspiring sun room, this farmhouse renovation is visually striking and inviting to visitors.

The home is spacious and open, featuring functional furnishings rather that overly ornate accessories. When experimenting with ornamentation, Gert Wingårdh highlights the home's vast book collection and uses it to add color to a monochromatic office space.
