A Warm Scandinavian Loft in the Suburbs

When interior designer Yonit Stern contacted us, we were super excited to help her curate works for her private home in Tzur Itzhak. After years in town, moving to the suburbs with her husband and two children was exciting and challenging at once. Stern managed to keep the Scandinavian- inspired loft elegant and classy without leaving the coziness behind. Stern combined her love for textures and fine lines with works by Nana Oduro and Rafael Baumer. The good Karma is present and the final result is beautiful and stylish!

“I love the two works I chose! They’re very special- you wouldn’t see these images in other apartments. Both works, ‘The Pool’ and ‘Exposure’, are photographs of things I can relate to and appreciate. The works are connected to other characteristics in my home, such as textures and color schemes, but mostly they are connected to me on the conceptual level.” Yonit Stern

“I became very attached to my new pieces"

"I searched for art a while before I got to Karma Kollective – as a designer I always take into account technical matters such as proportions, colors as well as material. On the one hand, the framing of the piece is very important for me (which materials you add to your space and how the work is presented) and on the other hand, there is the more artistic aspect of the work itself. With Karma, I managed to answer all this”

"Finding your work of art is a challenge"

'conversation piece'

“The second work ‘Exposure’ by artist Nana Oduro has something cool and very different. In this work, our normative way of looking at things is challenged and reversed. Usually, you would imagine that the earth is dark, while the default image of men is white. This time, it’s the opposite -the dark-skinned man against the white soil. To me, this work symbolizes the issue of the refugees in Israel (and in general, similar relevant issues discussed in the world) the attitude toward foreigners and the power relations. There is something ironic about this piece, something that is saying “rethink on how you think.” Stern
'To me, art is anything that creates an interesting dialogue – what I call a “conversation piece.” I believe art functions as an inspiring object that lifts up your space. It must be presented above the design and not absorbed in it.' Stern
