my scandinavian home: How white would you go in the home?

How white would you go in the home?

Wednesday, 6 July 2016

I know Scandinavian homes are synonymous with white, and yesterday's home was pretty white, but the interior designer behind this Swedish apartment has taken things to a whole new level! The floors, walls, furnishings, just about everything - is white! This isn't perhaps a very realistic way to live - as someone once commented here on the blog - 'own a rubiks cube and your stuffed'?! The home has of course been staged for sale through Fantastic Frank - sometime ago) but it's still inspiring in many ways - for example look at the difference a simple cream blanket makes on crisp white linen sheets - so calming. The kitchen is also lovely with a touch of dark wood and black. I guess the key question is, how white would you go?!

I could definitely go for that all white bedroom - so peaceful! How about you?

Get the look - Pick up beautiful stone washed white linen bedding here. This vintage off white blanket is similar - If sold (hurry, there's only one!) I also love this chunky Ecru blanket - it would look so pretty against white sheets.

I have to admit, I have a real weakness for white. One of my friends had an all white wedding and all the guests wore it - it was such a beautiful wedding! I also love the white wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses at this rustic barn wedding (any excuse to indulge in a little wedding photography - and this bohemian wedding does look so romantic (and moving)?!

Other white, white, white homes include this serene home of a designer (love the courtyard) and a calm swedish apartment. And (yes, you guessed it) I have an entire archive dedicated to white homes - this is a Scandinavian Home blog after all! Scroll passed the first home as it will be this one.

 Have a lovely, calm day!


  1. Hi there!
    I think it's too much here... that living room reminds me of asylums/madhouses, where everything has to be so controlled and clean and... not spontaneous. The best part to me is the kitchen - where I do like the clean feeling - but other than that... I need the personal, customized pops of color!

  2. As much as I love white, an all white home would feel rather sterile... plus i'm not willing to give up on colours!

  3. Gorgeous home, a little too white for me though! Sophie x

  4. The living room, I agree is a bit much. I am intrigued as to how the TV screen is colored?

  5. Too white for me. I always wonder with these "extra white" interiors, where do these people keep their books, children toys, etc? Are they all staged?
    Fantastic Frank you say? I've been drooling over the Berlin apartment they posted lately. Can't get the idea that I'm not going to live there haha

  7. That crisp white linen! Beautiful. If only I didn't have a dog!

  8. Oh my...I do love white but this is pushing just a feels cold and off putting to me...when all the accessories are white I think you have gone a wee bit over the top!!

  9. Would go far! All my walls and floors are white and most of the furniture. Unfortunately due to I live in a rental, the doors are not white, which is a real eye sore. Adding some color and all the greens in the windows from outside is balancing out too 'much white' (if this does exist LOL).

  10. I, too, find it a bit too much ..... it feels a bit too sterile, too lifeless. Having a bit other neutrals (like beige, gray or black) adds texture and drama, for example like the wonderful soft-looking blanket in the Dutch boudoir higher up that I need to hunt down right now.

  11. This is so beautiful :)Its really nice and looks neat :)
