scandinavian influence

For some time I have kept these beach house images in my folder and now that spring has arrived they simply look more appealing to me (well, I posted the bedroom here). The house is situated on Shelter Island, NY, built under Scandinavian influence around 1980. When the new owners bought it, it looked rather gloomy with dark stained walls. To give the house a lighter appearance they sanded the walls and then painted them with a diluted grayish-white wash made from leftovers.
