Peek Inside a Spacious and Serene Home in Finland With a Monochromatic Design

, , , , , , , By Catherine


Bright, light and airy – These are first words that came to my mind when I saw this beautiful Finnish home.

The stars of this interior are all the gorgeous wood details that can be found throughout the place. The stunning floorboards, the kitchen island with its overhang, the built-in shelves and alcoves in the hallway, as well as the stylish furniture and accessories… They add warmth, a great tactile quality, and a layer of depth without complicating the colour palette. It also prevents the (almost) all-white interior to feel too sterile.

The soft palette really makes the place feel calm and cohesive.

Enjoy the tour!



In this home I spot:



May I just emphasize the lounge area (last three pictures)!?  It has a cozy sitting corner, an access to the wine cellar and it is right next to the spa-like bathroom with sauna… Pretty awesome, right?

    What wall colors do you think they use? I love the almost white but not quite tone of the wall colors.

    I love the table and chairs. Wondering where the table is from.

      Me too! Gorgeous combination. Hans Wegner’s Wishbone chairs for Carl Hansen & Son. Unfortunately, I don’t know about the table.

    Looks absolutely gorgeous! Would you tell me, where the lamps in the top picture are from?
