Black, White & Green In Scandinavia

I’ve written before of my admiration for Scandinavian design with its form, function, clean lines and minimalist tendencies. Yet it wasn’t until I saw these photos from Hus & Hem that I realized a prime element missing from the story: nature.

In this Swedish retreat, all the usual suspects are present. Black, white, pattern and function – but with a twist: fresh, green elements plucked straight from nature’s bounty. And although the home furnishings are a breath of fresh air, every piece takes a back stage to the true star of the show: lush scenery.


The look is more greenhouse than house, and I’m loving it more than I ever imagined. What do you think? Too green, too natural? Or just enough Mother Nature for your taste?
