Black and White and Colorful All Over

Hus & Hem

This family home in Sweden has a light touch even with a little (or a lot) of black both indoors and out. It's expertly balanced with a lot of white and little shocks of brilliant color. Take a look:

The all-black exterior is lightened by beautiful outdoor spaces and a sculptural white sunshade. Indoors, black accents are striking against light gray concrete floors throughout, large windows, and expanses of white walls.

All of this is pierced by strong color on occasion, as in the children's rooms with their colorful stripes (shown in image 4). See the rest of the design at Sweden's Hus & Hem.
