The beloved Veteran Homes owners take Inspiration from the past and gazes to the future. Veteran houses have gained great popularity in recent years and are sought after houses among homeowners. The houses are associated with the havina of the past, history and even family ties.
The house model loved by Finns always looks like its owner. Roaring floors, sloping walls, warming bowls and a sloping stack of wool socks. Life in the Verteran home is casually hearty, but by no means completely carefree. There are years of renovations behind it or enough work for years to come. However, the future is not stressed because everyone living in a Veterans home knows that renovations are part of life in an old house - it is a way of life.
The pages of the book Rakas Rintamamiestalo include eleven families and the story of their home. The unifying factor in the book’s homes is the residents ’passion for putting and decorating the home. On the outside, the front houses are almost the same, but different on the inside. Every resident has created something unique in their home.
The book admires beautiful and personal interior design solutions, is inspired by interior design ideas and explores the history of the house. The book is a tribute to the enthusiastic interior designers who built post-war Finland and saved old houses.
