In Scandinavia you see a lot of houses with continuous rooms, where you walk from one directly into the other. In the Netherlands we have the "room en-suite" with a living room in the front and a back room with a glass sliding door between the two. Most of the times this is seen in older houses, probably built somewhere between 1900-1930. To get to any part of the house, you need to go through the hallway. Thus, all rooms are separated.
But I like the Scandinavian variation very much. It gives you the feeling all the rooms are connected to each other. The house or apartment might be small, but it feels spacious because of that connection.
This is partly the reason I like the house below. And because of the colors ( a lot of white of course), and those typical stoves, and the way it is decorated, and..., and... In short, I totally like it!
