Battered industrial finishes seem to come alive when teamed with brilliant whites and colour pops; so effortlessly stylish, such spaces ooze laid-back, serene style. This Scandinavian home is no exception – everyday areas, such as the log store, are ‘framed’ by their all-white surroundings, subsequently making them features of the home and preventing any opportunity for the space to feel cold or uninviting. Meanwhile, the quirky vignettes add personality and interest; a personal favourite is seen below – the shutter and collection of three saws in the corner of the room. Plus, I’m tempted to try something similar to the empty photo frames (seen on top of the cabinet below) in my own place. So simple, but so effective! What inspires you about this uplifting home?

  1. LOVE this home. I can't get enough of industrial, white, and wood together. I love the old window paned door that is covering the built-in shelves – so smart!

  2. I love the eclectic nature of the objects here and when the industrial objects are teemed with this rustic white matt, it is very liveable!

  3. I like this home with all the windows for natural light. The rustic pieces are a neat touch. I dig the doggy looking out the window on the steps, priceless!

  4. The bedroom with the giant “A” is spectacular. As is the room with the over-sized botanical prints. But then again, they're Scandinavian, so why am I not surprised?

  5. I'm so in love with the industrial edge and the light fixtures are just calling out to me-love it all Will!

  6. Oh my goodness, this is the best post (for me) so far! I immediately had to show it to my husband because our 1950's home has older, rustic-looking features. With our modern furniture, it was hard for me to see how it could work..but now I can 🙂

    Thank you!

  7. I am so totally into this white walls, white floors, rustic industrial look right now! This home is GORGEOUS!

  8. The Scandinavians get it so right i think! Love the lightness of the space and the colour against the all white palate.
    Really liking those giant jam jars on the table as well!
    Happy Weekend lovely

  9. Dying to have white floors like those but with a house full of boys, how ever would they stay clean? Happy weekend!

  10. White floors and ceilings give such spaciousness like living in the clouds. Always fresh! Love all of the antiques here too.


  11. my fav kind of style for homes. I am in LOVE with the pic of stacked firewood and glass built-in cabinet. How adorable is the milkcan?
    thanks for great post will.
    happy weekend

  12. There are so many things I love in every single one of these photos – too many to list 😉 Its so inspiring and makes me long to re-decorate my whole entire apartment! Happy weekend friend! xo, danni

  13. How can I not love a bright, white and light Scandi treat like this?!

    Apart from the freshness of it all, I love the stacked fire wood and that inbuilt cabinet the most. Looks like they've used an old window for the door – great idea.

    We've just entered the Weekend here in Sydney. It's hot, humid and sunny. The only sensible thing to do is to head for the beach..

    Up North they are tending to the deep wounds of the monstrous cyclone Yasi that hit earlier in the week. Devastation..
