Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Saturday sweets

A style study on using white and wood is what I put in your bag of eye-candy for this week. Some of the pictures show room settings with little dots of bright colours, while others are more minimal and go for just the neutrals. Which do you prefer?

    Lately I have developed an admiration for the tight, straight grain stuff.
    The "room end" application in these photos is very successful.
    I also find it interesting to discover that it's being applied both vertically and horizontally in homes.
    And... buy using it strategically (rather then everywhere) you can give the quality perception of "real wood" without placing it everywhere... which is easier on our environment.
    Great stuff... thanks !

    Yes, I love those closet doors too! The wide white spaces between them makes the wall look interesting and not too heavy and dark. But i think i would have done it with rounded corners instead, for an even more retro look.

    The first one is my favorite. Normally I prefer a hint of bright colors. But for the white and wood theme, neutrals are more soothing.
