We started planning for the look for the summerhouse couple of weeks ago and have decided to paint it black on the outside with white detailing. This will probably not happen until next spring because it is "PRACTICAL"... hate the term "practical", but I might have to give in, we'll see..
This Scandinavian look is so up our alley and we are loving it..
On the inside we will have white ceilings, doors, windows and cornices which will pop with the grey walls. We also meant to paint the rooms completely white but have now decided to keep them grey like in the main space.
We love black details, not exactly "summerhouse-y", but we like that.. a bit more rock, modern and cool but still keeping it classy and cosy! Black picture frames, couple of furnitures in black, pillows and details
Here are some ideas for the kitchen, living and dining...
The wooden beams in the loft we decided to darken and it has now a dark walnut colour, absolutely lovely! We will also introduce this stainer to the dining-room table, kitchen shelves, living-room bench and sofa table and that will connect all those spaces together.
We also want to introduce some bast, in summerhouses you've got to have some bast, don't you think?!! Living room rug, baskets etc...
Whereas we didn't find a sofa that fitted perfectly into the space we have decided to make our own from a bed and pillows. This will give us an extra sleeping "just in case" and we find it to be super cosy looking! We are also going to make our own sofa table, metal structured frame with stained wood matching the ceiling beams and dining room table. Introducing a little industrial feel we will continue that style throughout the space.
The kitchen is a bit heavy as it was originally so we removed the upper cabinets which lightened this whole space. We will add open shelving instead and paint the buffet black. We were going to paint the kitchen fronts in white but are going to hold on that thought for now since the colour of the cabinet changed completely when we painted the surrounding walls.
In the next post I will tell you more about the bedrooms, loft and bathroom so please stay tuned.
