Bright White, Off White, Winter White, Soft White, Mellow White, Scandi White – some view white as a safe option, but for many it’s the go-to paint color when decorating. White can make rooms appear spacious and bright, and a healthy serving of white – on walls, furniture and everything else – is common in Scandinavian interiors. This comes as no surprise, as with the cold winter climate and short winter days, this neutral color feels light and airy throughout the year. Having said that, if you’re trying to create a calm, soft, versatile Scandi interior, we recommend to down your brushes for a moment, because there’s a new player in town and it’s called Kabe.
We’ve learned about Kabe at Kinfolk gallery in Copenhagen where it covers most of interior walls. Curious to know more, we did a bit of digging and realized that Kabe is taking the interior world by storm. Inspired by the minimalistic lifestyle, it’s essentially a unique colour plaster that’s beautiful to look at, pleasant to touch, easy to clean and best of all – designed for DIY application.
There are a lot of different types of wall finishes out there, but most of them are very expensive and require professional execution. With Kabe you can give your room a facelift in a few days even if you had no previous experience with painting or plaster. The product consist of filler and an associated surface treatment giving the wall dirt repellent qualities. High traffic zones? Small children? You no longer have to compromise and can get both a beautiful and functional wall.
Head to Kabe website to see a full selection of colours and a list of distributors in Denmark. In the meantime, prepare to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, because you’re one DIY project away from an Insta-worthy bedroom wall.
