A SWEDISH RETREAT

Clearly a fresh new year has ushered in even more of an obsession with fresh, white spaces. This Swedish abode however, is different from your typical white space, and also that of a home whose pieces have been collected from around the world...

The cleanliness of this home provides the perfect base from the ethnic mixes of furniture, colors, and textures...


Its admirable the way that the homeowner/designer has enhanced the bones of this home with style pieces from so many different eras and cultures [ check out that blue chest paired with a parisian-esque chandelier and tropical tree]...


While originally this room did little aesthetically for me, it seems the fabulous chandelier presents itself as the ease and careless bit of the space - making is flow with relaxation and maybe even imagination.


while the view is undeniably the statement maker of this lofted area - that floor lamp made me fall in love...

The blue chest and chandelier are pretty marvelous.
I also love the size of the black floor lamp!

I can't decide what I like better - white floors/walls/ceilings or dark floors/light walls/dark ceilings. I think in our new house (that we're buying this year) I will insist on dark floors with white ceilings, a bit of a compromise that still provides that light-airy feeling! Such a beautiful place you have featured here! Happy new year!
