my scandinavian home: A beautifully simple home with green floors

A beautifully simple home with green floors

Wednesday, 6 November 2013

I'm always showing homes with white floors, black floorswood floors and even concrete floors. But what about green floors?! This surprising twist to an otherwise (beautiful) simple, white Australian home looks utterly fab and tells us that perhaps we need to think outside the usual colour scope? To get the look it's important to balance it with other items in the same shade (note the green tap and accessories in the kitchen, vases on the dining room table and vintage scales by the fireplace). Love the mid-century furniture too...

Could you go green? Or perhaps you've seen another colour somewhere you like?

I've got something exciting to share with you tomorrow so make sure you pop back.....oooo, what could it be?!

Have a lovely day

  1. A bit daring, but it worked out very well! Love the house, except for the carpet in front of the fireplace. That's a bit to much. The smaller carpet in the other picture is a better match.

  2. I like it. All but the brightest green is a neutral, in my opinion, so it keeps it subtle, but also practical, as it isn't then so difficult to keep clean. I also like the bits of red the rugs provide.

  3. It is quite a statement. I worry I would tire of it all over the house like that.

  9. Hm, I like it. I might go red instead, and keep textiles and accessories black white and grey, with a few pops otherwise. Love the idea.

  13. Way back in the day (too long ago to mention the year without dating myself!) I painted all the floors in my carriage this shade of green—I felt like I was wading in the ocean!
