Contemporary apartment with white walls and rustic furniture

Decorating with white walls opens a multitude of possibilities. The versatility of this color, especially when used for the background, is impressive. It’s a great starting point that can lead to a contemporary décor, a traditional interior or even a rustic look. This apartment has a little of all.Simple, airy and small but spacious, this apartment is a very interesting combination of modern and rustic elements.

The white walls provide a neutral and versatile background for the rustic furniture. Some of the furniture is also white and this allows it to just blend in with the décor while other pieces have a dark and heavy appearance that contrasts with the lightness of the room. This contrast, even though strong, doesn’t disturb the overall pleasant décor. The rooms remain light and welcoming, without being disturbed by the heaviness of the rustic furniture.

The combination of styles is a little unexpected but what’s even more interesting than that is the fact that the décor remains minimalist and simple. It’s a great example that shows us we can successfully combine Scandinavian décor with our favorite rustic and antique pieces without disturbing the balance. In this apartment, all the rooms share a similar décor. Even the nursery room is white and simple. However, this doesn’t make it boring and plain but rather serene and relaxing.{found on Alvhem}.
