A few weeks ago I was quite taken by the "Super White" interiors of Danish shop owner Tine Kjeldsen that were published on Apartment Therapy.  View them here.  I just love the freshness and light that oozes from this Danish home.  And the contrast between the crisp white and very textural, natural woods and woven sisal carpets.  I was so inspired in fact, that I dug out some Scandinavian home magazines in search of some other Northern white interiors. While these homes must be something of a nightmare to maintain (I find it hard enough with a black&white sofa, let alone a pure white one), I just love the effect.  I imagine no small children or large dogs are allowed.  Enjoy!

A beach house close to Stockholm:

A crisp country kitchen:

A 1938 modernist dream home outside Oslo:

And another Norwegian modernist home from 1937 (I love the palest of pale blue kitchen and all those Danish modern furniture pieces):


  1. I LOVE this design concept. Or this color. Which ever came first . . .

  2. Talk about enjoying a living space. Very refreshing and the nautical touch also I love.

  3. I am so glad you enjoy the white interiors of my homeland...isn't there just something so pure and refreshing about it?! Thanks for the comments!

  4. oh, man. I love the super pale blue one with those fantastic Hans Wegner chairs. The artichoke light too... Someday...

  5. Hi Christa,

    I just love the clean and crisp appeal of the all white interiors but I lack the discipline to try this in my own home. I find that I am drawn to colorful pieces. Perhaps I should try it in one room and see how it goes...

    So fabulous to meet you yesterday and "talk shop".

  6. This beach home is absolutely stunning. I believe the kitchen would be my favorite part. I can almost taste breakfast when I look at the clean yet cozy design.

  7. Wonderful.... Airy and clean. Hope you are well.

  8. Yes Sarinda, I have lots of work on at the moment...just waiting for the perfect client to use your beautiful work!
