When we think of white decor, we think of bright, sunny and beachy communities such as Malibu, Laguna Beach, the Hamptons, Portofino, Capri, Mykonos and St Tropez.  However, white furnishings have served to brighten up homes in some of the colder and grey climates throughout Europe for centuries.  After all,  just because it’s cold, damp and grey outside, we are all entitled to bright and cheery surroundings in the comforts of our warm home whether we are in Stockholm, London, Paris, Berlin, Chicago or New York City.
