As an accomplished photographer, stylist, buyer, and seller, Kara Rosenlund has a career that takes her all over the world, including delivering masterpieces to Madonna and diving for barnacled earthenware off the Scottish coast. After several years in London, she and her husband, Timothy, decided to return to their native land, where they purchased a 19th-century worker’s cottage. The next three years were spent restoring the bare-bones home, incorporating many traditional fixtures and materials, to create a contemporary feel.
Inspired by old, hard-working kitchens, Kara selected materials that were durable and practical for food preparation. Salvaged elements, including the open shelving, as well as traditional fixtures, create an updated old-world feel. via
