Sleek Scandinavian design may not sound like it lends itself to family living, but this home proves otherwise. John Baker and Juli Daoust Baker of Mjolk share their bright and airy city family home. See inside the carefully curated space that’s influenced by Scandinavian and Japanese design.

The couple’s love for natural light and raw material is evident in every room of the two-storey house, which is located right above their store. Unfinished oak, sandstone and untreated leather are used throughout. These natural materials will develop a patina over time. “It will look more beautiful because we’ll see ourselves in it,” says John. The kitchen features open shelves that keep cooking essentials easy to reach, while a unique top-floor courtyard provides the perfect place for the children play.
