This trend combines echoes of traditional French country style with strong overtones of the timeless Swedish look - both effortlessly elegant influences. Far from being stark, the success of this airy, almost ethereal theme is all in the subtle detailing. So clear crystal chandeliers hang above elegantly turned white wooden furniture; white waffle blankets are layered over pretty cutwork lace and hand-quilted pure white throws; and simple voile window treatments delicately diffuse light into rooms filled with bleached calico seating.
If you yearn for a little colour, paint one or two walls in a muted pink, lilac, blue, moss green or coffee.
