The Housing Fair 2023 will be held in the picturesque town of Loviisa by the sea. The fair area is named Kuningattarenranta (Queen's Beach), located on the eastern shore of Loviisa Bay. The mesmerizing sea views have been utilized in all the showcased properties, and particularly in the homes built on waterfront plots, the vistas are truly captivating.
The fair theme is divided into three parts: a home is more than just a dwelling, lighting matters, and the significance of the sea. For an increasing number of people, a home serves as a remote work station or the base for running a business. It can also double as a vacation oasis, eliminating the need for a separate cottage. Lighting has been used to create various moods and can also accentuate desired shapes and enhance safety.
In this article, we have selected different and memorable properties as highlights of the fair.
The housing fair area is located by the sea.
Villa Kuningatar is a solid stone house designed by the owner herself for her family. It features a terrace with a swimming pool, a boathouse on the beach and a pier. The interior of the house is Scandinavian-inspired, open, and bright, with the sea view incorporated as part of the decor. Maximizing the sea view has been a priority, achieved through large windows. The interior design includes white, gray, black, wood and beige colors, and pops of other vibrant colors like red, blue, and yellow.
The kitchen in Villa Kuningatar is one of the most stunning kitchens at the housing fair. The attention is drawn to the large island, where the stainless steel worktop extends over the cabinets, creating a small breakfast nook. The stainless steel worktops are from Stala's Tailor-made collection.
