So now mum asked me what colour she should paint her furniture. If painting them white is too much.
The floors will remain wooden so there will be some colour left. Taking this into consideration I think white is a wonderful choice. It's almost as if you can never have too much white. BUT a few items of colour are appreciated. Here are some examples of scandanavian architecture to give you the picture...
|A "typical" scandanavian home. Light wooden floors, white walls, and ...white furniture. Note however the bright green vase by the window. This example by Anna Kern.|
|Again, light wooden floors and white walls but this time with black furniture details. I also love the cardboard moosehead as a "environmentally and animal friendly" version of a real moosehead. This is from the April and May blog.|
|This is a vision of how it would be if some furniture items were kept in the original wooden colour. This works well in this case considering that the floor is also white.|
|I really love these colourful details. I never used to like yellow and orange before, but I have to admit I'm becoming quite fond of them both. This is from Elle Interior magazine.|
|This is a photo shooting done by Emma of Emma's design blog.|
|This is the home of Henrik and Susanna Nygren.|
|Ikea's magazine. A white example with just one black furniture piece. The only colour here is the green of the leaves.|
|Rustic home with white painted floors and old white furniture. Great look that takes longer to accieve than one might think.|
|This is an apartment that was for sale about a year ago. I loved the bright pink carpet and the colourful paintings making this house more dynamic.|
