Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

The White Briefs live here!

The moment I saw this home in the latest issue of Family Living, I just knew I had to post it here, because it is totally a m a z i n g! The owners, Henriette and Peter, live here with their daughter, and run their company The White Briefs from here as well. The 300 sqm house, located in the most beautiful part of southern Sweden called Österlen, was originally used as stables but after some substantial renovations, no one would guess... But there are still plenty of original details left, like the huge stable doors and the beams in the ceiling.

They chose a basic, paired down style for the interiors, with a white base and concrete floors. The furniture are mostly vintage or built on site. However, the burnt yellow hue of the kitchen tiles certainly stands out and creates a great focal point!

    I often see very beautiful houses on Internet. No house has never EVERYTHING that I love ; there are always some details, some furnitures that I don't like. But apart my house, I could live in the "White Briefs"'s one. I am in love with it !

    thanks for setting up this website/ blog & sharing pictures of these beautiful homes with us emma!

    i'm very much fascinated with concrete-finish flooring and white walls...

    does anyone knows how did the owner manage to get the concrete flooring that shiny and "granite" looking?...thanks...
