A Beautiful Country House Full of Crafts

Not a long time ago I was lucky to visit a beautiful country home full of old crafts. The building is a lovely example of traditional czech farmhouse. It’s owned by a very talented craft artist Lenka Limova and her husband. There are vintage spinning wheels literally in every room! Lenka mostly spends her time weaving though. She creates her own linen fiber from flax. Her other hobbies include felting, knitting, bobbin lace, sprang and other. Last but not least, she has a great home decorating taste.

I hope you’ll enjoy these photos just as much as I enjoyed my visit.

This house if full of life – you can run into five very cute and cuddly dogs. You just have to watch your step a little bit 🙂 (Notice the amazing wooden chest.)

As you enter the house, you’ll notice so many beautiful things that say a lot about the owners’ taste.

I absolutely adore the kitchen and the living space. The red color might be a bit agressive elsewhere, here it just adds so much character and warmth!
