A White House in Oslo

August 5th, 2014 | Posted by deardesigner in Interior Design

I so admire the discipline that creates a beautiful white home like this. Yes, it’s easy enough to paint all of the walls and floors of a house white and fill it with white accessories. But the real skill is in the editing. The paring down of possessions until only the essentials and the extremely beautiful remains.

It’s been edited very skillfully. There is no clutter. Nothing superfluous. Everything has a purpose. Everything is placed precisely for a reason. Everything has room to breathe.

And of course the warmth of the space (because let’s face it some white houses can appear cold) has everything to do with the textures. The furs, the rug, the old wood and the baskets dotted around. Even hanging from the ceiling as pendant lights.

Nothing jars. There are no bright colours to spoil the serenity of white on white.

Everything is tidy and ordered.

And of course it’s the home of a stylist from Norway.
