White Home

With lots of white, vin­tage trea­sures, flow­ers and nos­tal­gia, this home epit­o­mises the best of shabby chic style.

Chic & Country - - Contents - Pho­tos and styling: Bianca Plan­ner

Bianca Plan­ner lives with her hus­band Markus and their three chil­dren and four dogs in a semide­tached house in a small town in Ger­many. Bianca’s pas­sions in­clude dec­o­rat­ing, blog­ging, read­ing and cook­ing and she also loves pho­tog­ra­phy. “My style of liv­ing is a mix­ture of shabby chic and French style. I like to be in­spired by other blogs and In­sta­gram” but mostly her ideas come to her when she dis­cov­ers trea­sures in lo­cal flea mar­kets.

Bianca’s house is mod­ern, it was built in 1987, but the decor is vin­tage and al­though it is a town­house, she has dec­o­rated it in a ro­man­tic coun­try style that re­minds her of her child­hood grow­ing up in the coun­try­side. The gar­den also pro­vides the sense that na­ture is very much

present. Bianca loves tak­ing care of her roses and peonies and mak­ing beau­ti­ful ar­range­ments around the house.

Her all white colour scheme gives her home a bright and airy feel that makes the house feel sum­mery all year round. Her love of flea market finds also in­spired her to open her own Etsy shop where she dis­plays a range of wares, a cab­i­net de cu­riosités that she ed­its care­fully, with an eye for the un­usual and quirky finds. She in­her­ited her cre­ativ­ity from her grand­mother who passed on some of her favourite heir­looms. “My fa­vorite dec­o­ra­tion piece is a very old Madonna. She stood by my great-grand­mother’s bed, then my grandma’s. And now she is stand­ing next to my bed and pro­tect­ing me”.

Nat­u­ral de­tails Bianca adorns her all white space with plants and flow­ers which are dot­ted around the house in pots, planters and also hung up­side down over mir­rors and old doors cre­at­ing de­light­ful dis­plays of nat­u­ral beauty.
