Local designer, Emily White shares her tips for creating a Scandi-inspired abode.
Choose Warm Metals
White opted for brass hardware and fixtures, and bold gold accents and accessories, including the living room’s large chandelier. The glowing metals add warmth to the white-and-black palette.
Add a Touch of Whimsy
Neutral décor doesn’t have to be boring. Case in point: the oversized organic-shaped chandelier above the dining table (next image), and the rabbit-motif magnetic wallpaper, marquee-style sign and mod bubble chair hanging in Maggie’s bedroom.
White didn’t want any drywall, so she installed wood paneling throughout the home and a faux white-brick wall in the living room for interest. She also added decorative wood beams to accent the ceiling and lifted roofline.
Add Contrast with Black
The homeowner added contrast to the blanc palette with pops of black throughout the dwelling, including the ebony-painted window frames, exterior doors and a two-tone staircase that connects the original home to the new addition.
Pick Your White Wisely
White says the right shade of paint makes all the difference—she recommends a warm, antique white tone.
