A lovely combination of light and dark colours in this Gothenburg apartment by Stadshem. The living room and kitchen are kept white and decorated with greytones and I’m in love with the beautiful wooden double doors that seperate the kitchen and living room. In the bedroom and the office they used contrasting colours. The beautiful dark grey walls in the bedroom look wonderful in combination with the white sheets and canopy above the bed, which reminds me a lot of the bedroom in this apartment. In the office they were creative in combining storage with a workspace by building a desk in between the dark painted wooden closets. It’s interesting how they switched up the colours in this home, keeping the living spaces very light and giving the private rooms these dark colours, very nice.
A few days ago I blogged about a bold apartment with black walls. Well this apartment in Gothenburg is going even bolder, it’s filled with dark, bold colour combinations. The walls of the living room are painted grey with a dark green ceiling & stucco and on top of that a purple rug. The bold colour combinations continue in the kitchen were they painted the walls a combination of blue and green together with a black kitchen and wooden kitchen cabinets. They stayed with one colour in the bedroom a lovely dark blue which looks wonderful with the wooden closet that covers the entire wall. I think that this home shows that going bold and combining different colours can be a great idea if you want to have an interesting and original home.
This cozy Stockholm homes belonges to H&M designer Angelica Grimborg and her daughter Evy. Angelica completely renovated this apartment and in the renovations she switched up the floorplan and made an extra room for her daughter behind the large iron window that you see in the living room, giving the little room some natural light flooding from the living room (plus it’s an amazing statement piece). The home is decorated in a wonderful mix of materials with many items that were found on flea markets and vintage stores. I always love some vintage touches in a home, it gives the home some extra character don’t you think? It’s a beautiful small home with big style in Stockholm.
Would you dare to paint your walls black? I’m not sure that I would but Elin Kickén, the owner of this small apartment in Gothenburg, painted 2 walls in the living room black and it looks amazing! Even though the apartment is only 49 square meter you have everything you need and they made use of interesting niches to create some extra storage space, f.e. in the kitchen above the sink and the small (black painted) closet next to the bed in the small bedroom. An entire home in only black, white and grey you might think that’s boring, but obviously the Scandinavians know how to make a monochromatic home like this one beautiful and interesting despite the lack of colour.
It’s here! The full home tour of the townhouse in Stockholm which is a concept by real estate agency Eklund Stockholm New York in combination with Dusty Deco, Walles and Walles, Polstjernan Antik and Belenius/Nordenhake. The apartment is about 200 square meters with a private patio and is located in an old brewery from the 1600’s. The absolute eye catchers in this apartment are the huge arched paned windows over the entire height of the apartment that let in so much light. The entire apartment is styled to absolute perfection and the best thing is that everything you see in these images is for sale, but it is also an option to buy the apartment fully furnished. I am in love with this Stockholm townhouse, how about you?
I always enjoy it when I find a home that has been on the market before so I can see how people style their homes differently. A few weeks ago I posted a wonderful bright Scandinavian apartment with a glass dividing wall. While I was browsing through the archives of Alvhem Mäkleri I found the same apartment styled differently. Overal the apartment that I found today is styled brighter, just see the differences for yourself.
Like a true Scandinavian home this Gothenburg apartment is mainly decorated in grey, black and white with a lot of artwork decorating the walls. There’s also quite a bold choice in this cozy apartment, the owners of this home painted the small windowless bedroom a dark grey, I think it gives the bedroom a very cozy feeling but it’s certainly a bold choice in a room without natural light (I also love the placement of the mirrors in the bedroom, very interesting).
Most of the time when I find Scandinavian apartments they’re quit small, the amount of amazing studio apartment inspiration I have gotten from Swedish real estate sites is overwhelming (Scandinavians are só good at styling small spaces). But this Stockholm apartment is the opposite, it’s huge with 247 square meter and two living rooms, because well why not? Most rooms in this apartment are painted grey with yellow and green details to add some colour. The green is also coming from the many plants that fill this home, especially in the spacious kitchen, I love that board against the wall with the plants! I love plant-filled spaces which you can also see in the home I posted friday, if you live in a city it’s a great way to bring nature to your home.
I hope you all had a nice weekend, has it been as sunny and warm wherever in the world you are as it has been here in The Netherlands? The home tour of today fits nicely with the beautiful sunny weather. A lovely renovated light white and grey maisonette in Gothenburg to start the new week. Beautiful Scandinavian design, light open spaces and I love the arched windows in the bedroom.
This small yellow studio apartment might be for sale in Stockholm. The former owner of this apartment is an architect and has completely renovated this small home where he made excellent use of all the available space with storage in the most unexpected places (f.e. on top of the bathroom). This amazing studio apartment combines the old 1800’s details of the building with modern design. Beside the wonderful design there’s something else special about this apartment which has everything to do with the new Stockholm real estate agency Nooks.
