You may remember the post I wrote called Wooden Flooring | Three Ways a while back. It included the wide and pale Dinesen flooring that I drew inspiration from for our new home, as well as beautiful herringbone flooring. The third style was that of older floorboards painted white, to give a slightly distressed, rustic look. Newer flooring (often made from engineered timber like our pale wood flooring upstairs) can look really pristine when white, and depending on the finish, can be either matt or glossy.
I'm sure you'll recognise the kind I'm talking about. Unmistakably Scandinavian, I can't get enough of this look right now. I hope my husband isn't reading this, but sometimes I dream about ripping up our downstairs carpet and replacing with this type of white flooring. Come winter, I'm sure I'll appreciate stepping out of bed onto our new grey carpet, but visually, this white flooring is where my heart lies! And after all, isn't that what rugs are for? For now I'll just keep dreaming... but maybe one day.
I've picked out three beautiful Scandinavian style homes to demonstrate.
Another Norwegian blogger, Tonje also takes amazing photographs of her home to share on her gorgeous blog Forever Love. How beautifully glossy are the floors?
Have a lovely weekend everyone, and if you're in NZ, stay safe in the stormy weather that's headed our way. x
