1800s Swiss Farmhouse Defies the Trendy All-White Interior

Rejoice! This 200-year-old farmhouse in the Swiss resort town of Interlaken is like the ultimate antidote to all the all-white interiors invading design blogs (and causing quite a bit of annoyance.) The two-story residence, the countryside retreat of a Zurich-based couple, contains 12 rooms on two floors, all clad in wood paneling and painted in different hues.

Between the walls and ceilings, there are 40 different, nuanced shades, primarily of grey, green, and blue. Though the abode retains its old windows, doors, floors, and fireplaces, the fresh paint job and and dynamic assortment of furniture gives the home a lively, modern spirit.
