I love a beautiful Scandinavian home and natural wood + white walls is a combo that I find increasingly soothing and attractive.
Maybe it is the fact that I spend more time out of the city, surrounded by nature and truth to be told, the first thing I do now in the morning, is (still wearing my PJs) putting my gumboots on to feed our chickens.
Maybe, it is the fact that we live 20 minutes from the beach, surf twice a week and get a massive salty injection from the Atlantic Ocean and all its raw, wild beauty.
With its high ceilings, white walls, pale wood and natural textured accents, this home exudes all these things that one can imagine in a home by the beach, don’t you think? Located in the south of Sweden, near Malmö (a city I only know from the extremely brilliant crime series The Bridge), this home combines tranquillity, modernity and embodies a very soothing, welcoming feel.
Don’t you love houses filled with natural light and big windows where you can admire the change of seasons from the warmth and comfort of your home!?
In London, where it gets pitch black by 4pm in wintertime, it should be compulsory to have large windows like the Dutch do and it is why we installed this large window in our kitchen when we renovated our home.
For those considering renovating their homes, it is a structural change that I highly recommend.
Attention to details, classic designs from Hans Wegner with the PH Snowball pendant light or the CH-24 wishbone chair , Muuto and minimalist design is what this house is about.
SHOP SCANDI DESIGNS:
A palette of white, beige hues and wooden furniture, give this home a sense of lightness, like things flow naturally from one room to another… I love the idea of custom-made plywood storage from floor to ceiling. It is such a great way to maximise space…
I’m also fond of the look of the bathroom and this large window. It is a look, Steve and I we love to achieve in our home in France where the bathroom needs to be renovated but I need to sort out the privacy issue as our bathroom overlooks the back garden where entertaining occurs in Summertime.
What do you think of this home? Do you like it?
