Get The Look: A Beautiful Family Home With A Simple Palette

, , , , , , By Catherine

I love the beautiful simplicity of this home in Bergen, Norway (take the full tour here). It is filled with iconic pieces as well as designs from recent years. I am particularly drawn to the dining room and kitchen, with the pared-down palette of white and grey, with accents in black, chrome and oak. It feels so serene.

Here, I am showing you how to get the look!

The inspiration:

The palette:

Get the look:


1. Pavillion Gray from Farrow & Ball – For alternatives in other paint manufacturers have a look here.

2. Wire Chair with Bikini Pad from Eames – Leather upholstery is what is available nowadays, but you might find vintage chairs with a woolen textile similar to what can be seen here.

3. Semi Pendant from Gubi

4. Cloche Lamp by Lars Beller Fjetland for Hay

5. Mosslanda Picture ledges from Ikea – As shown here.

6. Oak frames with a floating effect, Moebe

7. Plant box from ferm LIVING

8. Watering mister in chrome

9. In Between round table from &Tradition – Its black lacquer reflects the light and occasionally makes it look grey.

10. Pallo vase by Carina Seth Andersen for Skruf

11. Panthella floor lamp from Louis Poulsen

12. Print with a quote from Andy Warhol, Modernamuseet

13. Bottle Gringer salt & pepper mills from Menu

14. Behind Blinds print from Kristina Krogh

15. Loft wall lamp D4001 from Jieldé

16. Brush from Iris Hantverk

17. Black faucet from Vola

18. Corky carafe from Muuto

19. Pedal bin from Vipp

20. Modular shelf system by String – Small version show here, but you’ll see the 200cm-high module in the home.

22. Lime paint from Pure & Originals – It matches the concrete countertops perfectly.

The checklist:

The checklist is quite simple. All you need is to stick mainly to grey and white, as your dominant colors. Add reflective surfaces like chrome, glass and lacquer for texture and visual interest, with warm wooden touches and black accents – Notice the latter all have an industrial style. To further enhance this edgy look, concrete and metal details were also included in the decor. A good dose of greenery is the perfect finishing touch.
