Well, I am thinking about my next house right now and it is going to be white. All white. Of course, I am looking about three years ahead when the girls have left for college and the puppy has grown up, but I am thinking along the lines of this...
Yes, the homeowner is Swedish. They get white right.
Concrete work surfaces and open shelves in the kitchen give a modern feel to this old house in the Hague.
The kitchen table is positioned to take advantage of a garden beyond the glass doors. (I love the Scandiavians' liberal use of candles.)
Bedside tables are made from old apple crates that have been whitewashed and equipped with wheels.
The bright bathroom has a large window overlooking the garden. The thick shelves are built into what used to be a chimney flue.
