Fifty Shades of White In a Beautiful Swedish Home

If everyone else goes right, go left (so the motivational quote goes). And as current interior trends entice us to add more colour to our homes - there's one lady who has stuck fast to her passion. You might recall Malin Nilsson's beautiful home in Råå, on the South West of Sweden from a Christmas post back in 2016. And I was excited to see from her aptly named instagram feed VittVittVitt ('white white white), that her home still pays homage to her favourite shade. It's a minimalist look that requires attention to detail and a love for texture - and Malin has it in spades, you just need to look closely!

The walls and ceilings have been painted in 0500 by Flügger. The woodwork (doors, skirting boards etc) has been painted in 0502 (also Flügger) to breath life and depth into the overall look.

Texture in the form of shag-pile, metallics (how fabulous are these chairs?!), velvet and rattan help to heighten the visual impact of the space in a subtle yet cosy way.

The flowers add instant colour to the space and have also been arrange in a fairly relaxed, 'wild' way which brings softness to the room.   

So, what do you think? Does it stop your colour-dabbed paint brush in its tracks?  

It certainly makes me realise that white will always be 'right', even if I might just add a little more colour to my own home here and there this year.

Have a lovely day!


PS I have the worst cold today so if I've made any errors / I've used words that are a bit off it's because everything is a little hazy today! Any great remedies out there?!

  1. I usually need colour (lots of colour!) but this is gorgeous!

    1. I feel exactly the same - the white really works here!

  2. I had to look at this post twice to notice that there is not a single piece of art in the whole place. It's really unusual for me to not notice that right away as I always focus on art first, which is a huge kudos to Malin to be able to create a space, completely white, yet not boring, sterile, or any other cliche completely white spaces evoke. I would love to be able to live like this. Very interesting space.

    1. Great observation - I hadn't picked up on that! Thank you for pointing this out!

  3. I love the rug! Do you know where it is from? Or where you can find something similar?

    1. I've just found out from Malin that it's a Float from :)

  4. It was really insightful.
    Thanks for such a nice content.
    BTW if anyone interested more have a look thanks

    1. I love this home too, it really is beautiful!

  6. It's a very, very nice house. And I loved the knittied blanket.
    Some decorating specialists find it wrong to use white color and excess natural light in home decoration.
    I strongly disagree with this view, and theese wonderful house, that animating spirits, is a proof of that.
