Sweden is a land of white interiors. Before deciding to build our own house, we looked at numerous properties and were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of neutral white and greys. As we both love colour – in fact, M’s taste runs towards Austin Power-esque interiors – we quickly agreed that we wanted a home far from this.
So, it was with some irony we arrived at a decision for all interior walls to be painted white, at least initially. Bits of navy has been planned for the bathrooms and kitchen, to warm the space up. All this teamed with a nice warm oak floor.
Our thinking is that this leaves us free to populate the house with colourful furniture and accessories without going too far down the flower power route.
