Mid Century Iceland

There is a plethora of on-line magazines out there and they keep getting better with every issue. I find it pretty difficult to keep up so, if you have a favourite please pop it in a comment. I love a virtual click through with a cuppa.
I recently happened upon the second issue of Icelandic magazine, Home & Delicious which features, as you'd expect, interiors and a smattering of delicious recipes with beautiful photography, predominantly by Gunnar Sverrisson, at the back.
This is Gljufrasteinn; the family home of  Nobel prize author, Halldor Laxness. It was designed and built in 1945 and is now open to the public as a museum. He wanted a mixture of country and modern without pretension and filled the, then, new build, with craft pieces and art by his wife and family. It was considered ahead of its time then and its practicality is still relevant. Also, the colours and those tiles rock my world...
