Sometimes Scandi isn't just white

Sometimes Scandi style is anything but white. Most times it's a lot more. Swedish photographer Anna Danielsson takes us into homes that break those clichés about white and bright must be Scandi. There's brooding and muted, pop art colour pops and warm woods ... and yes there is still white but not the antiseptic, scrubbed within an inch of its life Swedish real estate photograph white. Lived in white. Such rich, detailed shots. So much personality. Those Swedes are still styling whatever colour the room.

The boathouse

Perched upon the shoreline, its face turned modestly to the water this modern reinterpretation of a previous 19th century Norwegian boathouse no longer provides a home for a boat but instead is now a summer place.

The boathouse by TYIN tegnestue Architects.

The Fredensborg house by Norm Architects Copenhagen. White perfection.

Eva Kylland

While I sit in French class day after day suffering (it's one-on-one, with me talking on and on about my day job), I desperately find myself requiring some mental relief. I steal moments thinking about the new boots I ordered, humming songs by the new band I discovered (I can hear them practising as I write this) and dreaming about inspiring interiors, such as the ones below photographed by equally inspiring Norwegian photographer Eva Kylland whom I discovered the other day. I will spend today thinking about the photo above. DREAMY.
