Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

44 shades of white

Also in this months Sköna Hem, this home in The Hague. The owner is a swede, which probably shines through in some of the design choices she made. There is no compromise in this home, it's functional, child friendly and practical at the same time as it's totally stylish! And very very white.

By the way, I'm sitting in a bar while writing this, and it's very hard to concentrate on my blogging as the guys at the next table are are engaged in a lively discussion about Scandinavian design. Right now they are having a verbal war on which design group is better, Swedish Front or Norwegian Norway Says... Oh, the discussion just started to circle around XBox vs Sony Playstation, and I suddenly got my focus back.

    Love this white home! It's so simply but still cosy and "warm".. Floor is beautiful. Now I make my own kitchen floor like this (we have old wood floor under many "notsonice" floors).

    I love the crate bedside table, so beautiful! I'm loving all things white at the moment, but there definitely needs to be a contrast, and the white and natural timber look is so classic.
