Hundreds and thousands

Posted on Mon, 19 Sep 2011 by midcenturyjo

Do they call the multi-coloured sprinkles on top of cakes “hundreds and thousands” in your part of the world? I never know anymore if a saying I have taken for granted all my life is common currency around the world. But it’s hundreds and thousands that sprang to mind when I saw this cute as a button home shot by photographer Patric Johansson and styled by Myrica Bergqvist. A white, bright confection of a house with just the right sprinkle of colour.  A perfect way to rev up the energy to start the week. (Via Söderberg Agentur.)

Gorgeous. Love how simple this is and yet it still manages to get a few fun splashes of color.

Sally says:

Wow I adore this place, it's gorgeous! I call them hundreds and thousands and completely know what you mean, the splashes of colour are so sweet! 🙂

I love this house. I want to live like that! And I just made the perfect quilt for this house!

this post really caught my attention. i love the white with spots of color and the mix of traditional, modern, and vintage.
i do have a question regarding the fireplace. i've noticed this circular chimney/tiled/corner style fireplace in lots of scandi homes. what's the background story on this? would love a post on that.

'Hundreds and thousands' is what we said in the UK. I thought it was 'sprinkles' here? But then again sprinkles is what comes out of the sky at you here. Oh, imagine that! Streets and streets of upturned mouths.

I am not such a big fan of all white ineriors, even though they do make a house feel light and nice, it's just too hard to maintain and if you don't decorate and accessorize properly (which is kindof hard for decoratingly challenged persons like me), it can feel a bit like a hospital (not here though).
But I absolutely adore these little corner fireplaces like in the fourth picture. It doesn't take up too much place and fire or no fire, instantly makes a room feel cosy and nice

I really liked the surfboard in the first picture. It has given me some ideas about what to do with my dad's old long board if he decides he doesn't want to take it out to the ocean anymore….(provided he wants to give it to me, though!)
I love the colour palette, but I have often wondered if white is too high-maintenance?

Gorgeous pictures! I saved the first one to my inspiration folder 🙂 The only name I know for colorful sprinkles is "disco dip" which I feel is apt 😉
