Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

Have I told you that I’m thinking of painting my house white? I am not sure if you know it, but I’m selling this house but I am so tired of its colors… I want serenity and nothing brings more serenity than a white room. White isn’t as easy as it seems, working with white walls can be very tricky and you should use many different textures to achieve a comfortable atmosphere. I love seeing Swedish houses because they use lots of white but they know how to do it very well, they always add some unexpected piece of furniture, some splash of color with art or decor. They simply know how to use white in a very beautiful and fun way.

I hope you enjoy seeing this place.

By My Door

This house was built in 1925 and has so much charm!

Old & New

In this house you’ll find an interesting mixture of old and new.

Foyer

Beautiful hardwood flooring and staircase.

The Doors

Clean lines and strong colors make this an inviting room. Want to come in?

Colorful White

Another reason to love white walls is that you can use any other color with it. Love the strong blue art against the white wall.

Make a Fire

Oh, how great is to have a fireplace in a house in Sweden? Note the light fixture in the next room, it looks like a crescent moon, so pretty!

Dining Room

The rug contains all the colors of this room. Great choice! Beautiful table, classic pieces.

Blue

I love this! Don’t you? You can always bring interest and color to a room with simple things.

Kitchen

You’ll rarely find a big kitchen in Sweden but this one has a very fair size and lots of style.

Grays & White

Gray is a great “marriage” with white. Really well done!

Going Up

This is stunning! I love the staircase and the art on the shelves.

More Blues

This is really fun! Nothing is too serious in this house… life should be about that!

Master Bedroom

The architecture of this space is so perfect! The arch, the space where the bed is located and what about the floors?

Mix

Love the vintage feel with the modern lights. Pretty!

Open It

This master has a very charming sitting area and it opens to a…

Beautiful Balcony

This beautiful balcony is a great spot to sit and have a cup of coffee on a warmer day.

Touch

Whenever I see a lantern, I need to post it! I’m passionate about lanterns.

Lucky

A really special place.

Seasonal Beauty

Juicy and delicious. Have one a day! 😉

We

Beauty can be added anytime, anywhere.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this place as much as I did. I love to see houses abroad and it always makes me want to visit the country. I need to add Sweden to my list! 🙂


Have a Bright Day!

    Love that room with the windows and blue bottles on the windowsill. Sweden needs to be added to my list, too! But I think Italy needs to come first!

    Wow – I love it! A converted barn with loads of charm, and those floors are just beautiful. Simple and fun – it’s perfect.

    Luciane, que casa aconchegante!
    Eu concordo com você, ninguém usa o branco melhor que os suecos, eles conseguem passar aconchego, tarefa difícil quando a casa é toda branca.
    Também agradeço pelos seus comentários, são muito importantes para nós.

    what a charming house! I love the staircase and the archway in the bedroom

  7. Maria Killam said,

    Well you know I’m a big fan of white so you have my vote! if I were painting my house I would always stay away from the latest trendy colour anyway because I think house paint lasts longer than a trend.
    Great post,
    Maria

  8. Maria,

    I’m right there with you.. “paint lasts longer than a trend!”

    Lu, I love this house! I love the simplicity and all the white in it! It feels homey. That bedroom is dreamy.
    Nice images.

    Charming for certain! I have Sweden and Norway on my list, I want to see where my grandmother came from, her father was from Sweden and her mother from Norway. I want to take my kids there too.

    beautiful floors. Lots of light and minimal window treatments but splashes of color make it so appealing.

    Lovely home and the pops of color, especially the cobalt blue, really makes a difference. Have a wonderful day.

    It sounds as though you are itching to get into your new house. Do yuo have a time frame in mind?

    Our last house wasn’t my style at all so I do know a bit how you feel. I was so frustrated there and could never get it to look how I wanted. Very disheartening.

    I love the mix of old and new in this house…..particularly the beautiful radiators. I’d love to have some in this house one day.

    I just found your site today. Just love it !!! I painted the outside of my house a cream color with red, white and olive accents. I have lived with all white walls indoors before and its just a bit much for me. I still have some white but have some soft fawn and a couple splashes of colored walls here and there. I love white bathrooms though. I have some beautiful mid century Hans Wegner pieces mixed in with antiques and slip covered seating because of dogs and living in a mountain community. The coverings just go in the washer. All reclaimed oak floors with old nail holes etc… The swedish home reminds me so much of my grandparents and father who were born in Sweden. I have always had some swedish decor and am a weaver with looms. That heritage just gets in you DNA and it a comfort. Thank you for posting that house.

  16. Kathie,

    I hope you feel welcome here! 🙂

    As I was reading your comment I was imagining your house… I wish I could see it! It “sounds” so pretty!

    Thank you for your comment. I love getting to know everyone that comes here. 🙂

    Great article! We love this Swedish Home! It is stunning!

    If Maria says white is right, she is surely correct. I myself crave color, especially in the winter time. I use a creamier white on my walls, and lots of yellows, corals, greens, red…you get the picture. We have quite a few well priced gustavian pieces on our website shop. I love them.
    Best,
    Liz
