How and why to decorate with timeless white interiors

It's not by chance or lack of imagination that white is one of the most popular colors in interior design. White is a low-risk color with endless possibilities. It has always been considered one of the best options for homes because it's easy to combine with almost any color.

At Norse Interiors, we offer 11 different finishes for our custom pieces, but our white lace finish has always been in the highest demand. We want to show you some customer photo favorites and tell you a little bit more about why white lace is such a winner.


Create the illusion of more space

White is recommended to enlarge spaces visually and is a steadfast symbol of cleanliness. A welcoming white storage unit opens up the space while matching your décor and adding a luxurious look to the room. All the following photos are from clients, showing a bit of their home while using our products to revamp IKEA pieces.

Give the room a clean look

White is known in interior design for the purity and simplicity it brings to a space. Our white lace finish has unbeatable adaptability to different styles, so it always works in your space, no matter taste or style. This aesthetically pleasing finish reflects good care of the room and is a symbol of cleanliness.

Very versatile in palettes, it can be used as an accent color among a variety of schemes. Our crisp, clean white lace finish evokes images of pure silk and soft linen. It is timeless and perfectly matched with the white Besta, Sektion, and Malm series from IKEA.

Why is white our best seller?  

White is the easiest color to always stay on top of trends with. It generates light and harmonious spaces, allowing you to form light and strong rooms full of class and personality. In the last three months, more than half of the custom pieces we've made have been in our white lace finish.

From a design and decorating perspective, it's nearly impossible not to find hardware, legs, and accessories that won't work with white. Swapping out the plain white IKEA fronts on Bestas, Sektions, and Malms with our artisan carved designs finished in white lace paint makes all the difference.

How do I know what works best in my space? 

If you don't want to go with white, but still want to stay in a light, neutral color palette, we recommend our perfect gray finish as an alternative. The perfect gray finish casts harmonious hues, giving your piece soft and eternal sophistication. This tonal middle ground is the ideal in-between of light and dark for all styles.
