swedish apartments .... white on white

Deirdre Brennan - Saturday, June 23, 2012

Scandinavian countries do white or pale interiors with great style.  Both rustic and refined.  Different shades of soft white, cream and grey ... each used exclusively creates an elegant retreat from the chaos of colour and pattern in everyday life.

White interiors accentuate architectural detail, texture ... and capture light.  They have a purity .... like a crisp white shirt or a fluffy white bath towel.

There is a certain serenity to a white or pale interior. White provides the blank canvas from which to showcase beautiful furniture, artwork ... even the view from the window.
