While many modern homes embrace the open living plan, the Wrights actually put up a wall between the kitchen and the living room, because the long space felt uncomfortable for the family. "It felt like a showroom, not a home," says Anna. Graphic wallpaper makes the wall a fun accent.
Wallpaper: Isak; wooden storage unit: Tradera; blue chair: vintage
Most of the pieces came from from local charity shops and flea markets. "We love to decorate with things that have a soul," says Anna. The kitchen wallpaper, from the 1960s, is an online find. Because the paper was so delicate, the family hired a professional to help put it up.
The pink lamp over the dining table is one of Anna's favorite purchases — only 200 of these Bumling lamps were made in this color in 2011. The splash of feminine color completely changes the room's vibe.

While much of the kitchen is original to the home, Anna laid it out to work well for her family. The large table can easily seat everyone and is tucked away from the kitchen counter, "so I don't have to look at the mess after cooking," says Anna.
The layout maintains some floor space for the kids to play on while Anna and Richard relax after dinner.
Ikea storage lockers keep CDs organized. The panels allow for a changing display of CD covers — one of Richard's favorite features.
The three children love to get involved in the home's design, often creating adorable accessories out of beads and fabric.
