Stockholmers use a lot of white in their homes and not without good reason. During the long, dark winters, it is the white walls, whitewashed floorboards and white-on-white accents paired with large windows that brighten up even the smallest of spaces. Yes, white is forever on-trend in Sweden’s capital, a city in love with light.
The style is clean and simple, with sofas and armchairs in form fitting white cotton covers, or relaxed, loose fit, pure linen covers. Layering fabrics and texture is the key to this understated but oh-so chic look, where natural material takes centre stage. White walls and light coloured floors make borders disappear, creating a fresh, luminous interior, while white cushions in a mix of fabrics add comfort and interest.
White wood keeps dining room furniture simple, breathing a casual elegance with chairs in stark white cotton covers.
In the bedroom, nothing says crisp and clean like pure, fresh linen, where an all-white scheme creates an airy, restful setting.
Surprisingly warm, liveable and child friendly, the secret to the Stockholm White look lies in machine washable sofa covers, armchair covers, headboard covers and more, as well as easy-to-wipe lacquered white surfaces.
