Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

How to get your white home to stay visually interesting

I just read a great interview with Line Dammen, editor-in-chief at Norwegian Elle Interiør. It's about white, how to prevent your white home from being boring and bland. It's in Norwegian of course, but there is always Google Translate for those of you who can't read it.
And there were pictures, amazing pictures! I'm showing some of them here but there are more over here.

    Finfina bilder. Älskar tavelväggar av alla de slag! Och vardagsrummet längst ner till höger såg jättemysigt ut mitt i allt det vita :)

    I love the cool Scandinavian fell to the decoration. And true is it that the key to interior decoration is managing to give it a personal style which is not too sterile. Nice Sara - Shopselected

    Mine is somehow boring and bland, this gave me an idea. I've been experimenting with colors thanks to this, I'll have another thing to do.

    Emma, this link seams to take to the magazine's home page. I cannot read Norwegian, do you mind fixing the link so I can copy and translate to english. ( I am quite interested in the topic)

    Thanks

    Gisela, you must have clicked on the link to Elle Interiør instead of the link to the article. But here is the link again:
