House in Stockholm

Most of the times when it comes to Scandinavian properties and photos -  it's all about white. This house in Stockholm, Sweden is a bit different.
First of all the wooden floor together with the pale walls create a dramatic contradiction to the house's original canvas. That taken the owners have added strong dashes of color here and there, like the living room's rug or the art and photos around the walls.
I have nothing against white, in fact it is a color i happen to like very much, but when it comes to so talented decorated homes, when i see the beautiful balance that color combinations create to a place, i take my hat off. Another reason is when you own a property in a country that you can not take day light for credit and you can count the days of sun-shining in your ten fingers, then you have to be very - very careful with color. Here we can see how the owners'  succeeded a restful, modern, peaceful and easy going with color home by keeping all the period 'ingredients' of the place and created somehow the perfect combination between old and new.

Thank you guys for letting us enjoy all these nice photos from your beautiful home.

Love, K.
