Bright White Rooms to Chase the Grey Days Away

Bright White Rooms to Chase the Grey Days Away

With minutes dropping off of the hours of daylight each day (but thankfully only until the 21st!), some bright interiors seemed like a refreshing alternative to sunsets at 4:45pm. Here is a roundup from one of the quintessential Swedish mags, Sköna hem, that captures the je ne sais quoi of Scandinavian interiors that we all love and adore.

As white is the combination of all colors and is known to reflect light when used in interiors, it's no surprise that so many Scandinavian homes use it as the primary decorating color of choice. With days as short as seven hours in the winter, homes serve to counteract the dark and gloominess outside. I know I could spend days inside of these walls, but my question is this: how do you keep those white floors so clean?
