This is why I love the internet, because a mere decade ago I couldn't pop in to visit someone living hundreds of miles away. And now, today, it's an everyday occurrence. This is why I love and cherish my visits to see Anette Karlsen on the web at Anettes Hus... Just look at her photos. Yes, these are of her home in gorgeous Norway. How can all of these images in winter white and shades of green with touches of silver not pull a heart string? Have a glance below and tell me, do I need say more?
What I love about her home: It feels simple and pure, natural. A delicate crystal chandelier. The reflection of a heart in the door, with what appears to be a bit of lace too. I love the various tones of white, as white feels less clinical and more cozy when various tints and tones are used together. Her obvious fondness for tea. The old doors with vintage handles and glass. The vintage decorating touches. Her gorgeous ceramics. White paneled walls. Sigh. This is exactly how I envision a country home to be.
What words come to mind when you look at these photos? What do you appreciate about this style? What elements do you like and could you live with that you see here?
