Light, white, and modern

November 10th, 2009


Well it’s still early and we don’t really know what we’ll eventually do when we renovate the apartment, but I’ve been dreaming up some ideas. I’ve always really loved the look of light wood and white walls, and I’ve found the perfect examples of these being executed.



House N by Sou Fujimoto Architects. It’s such a beautiful home you should really check it out.



House No. 5 design firm Claesson Koivisto Rune. We blogged about this before and I haven’t forgotten about it. It just hits all the right notes for me

Light wood floors

the image is from and live/work home in Nikko by architect Japanese Katsutoshi Sasaki. I just love the open space and the slanted walls.


Now the winning design combination of 2009! light wood and white painted metal staircases, let’s take a look at a few more.

Oh yea, all these examples only work if you never plan on having children, or aging.


I think I need this no matter how “not up to code” it is here in Canada. Nobody can come to our house unless you sign a waiver saying you won’t sue us if you fall down our metal staircases that is blinding from all the natural light being reflected off the white surface.
