No surprise all over the world this style is so much loved and copied. Here are some traditional and also modern examples I love so much.

As you all know that scandinavian countries darks half yr therefore, they love the natural colours to lighten up one's home.

Been living here in Sweden for almost half of my life and found that their designs always come in right place.

Although, white isn't the best colour for a family w/ small kids.

Nice & cozy! ENjoy your day & w/end ahead. Take care!

This is the style that inspires me right now.
Steve and I have taken ideas from Swedish design to form the ideas for our new furniture line.
It is contemporary without feeling cold.
I love the neutral color palette.
The dining chairs with the long skirt are my favorite. So clean and feminine.

Have a wonderful weekend.

White is such a luxury, and these images prove it. But forget about it if you have children or pets. (Let me just check. I don't!)

I just love this simple style, so classic with a modern twist. I have decorated my own home very similarly to some of these pictures - such an easy style to live with. Hope you are having a nice weekend. Tracey x

incredible post.....
I have a question, the picture where the woman is playing a base fiddle... the painting in the background..... is that done with paper mounted to a canvas?
