Inside a home without statements or accents (and why I like it)

I love looking at eclectic, quirky interiors – homes that make you think; rooms with layer upon layer of collected treasures; houses with fascinations at every turn. But there’s definitely a place in my heart for understated, unchallenging houses too. With all things considered, I want my own home to be my sanctuary – a place that’s simple, relaxing and beautiful in a quiet way.

I think that’s what appeals to me about Ylva Mazetti’s home.

I love the chalky white backdrop prettied-up with soft pastel colours and just enough black to stop it feeling wishy-washy. And although there are a few collected vintage bits, everything fits in comfortably… there’s no statement piece or accent colour asking for attention, and I really like that. It feels refreshing somehow.

    Agree, totally refreshing…elegant and quite feminine but not too much. Please stop posting lovely houses and rooms. I want to change everything in my house again! I love that minty green too Marianne. x
