This lovely small Stockholm apartment hit the market today trough real estate agency Skandia Mäklarna. The apartment is decorated in various shades of grey, including the dark grey doorframes, which gives the apartment a slightly dramatic look. The only other colours come from the tan leather sofa and the green from the many plants that fill this small grey apartment. Absolutely love the styling of this small grey Stockholm apartment, who says grey is boring? It’s super cool!
In a town in Belarus, not far from Minsk, stands this apartment for a young family designed by Studio Nordes. The idea behind the design of the apartment was that it had to be timeless. During the renovations they managed to restore the original features of the building, such as the marble fireplace and stucco ornamentation and by removing the walls they created one large living space that is still clearly divided in three areas: a living room, dining room and kitchen. The apartment is decorated with a mixture of modern pieces from (f.e.) Tom Dixon and Lindsey Adelman and classic midcentury pieces from Charles Eames and Gio Ponti. Counterpart to the vintage pieces in the living room is the modern black kitchen that makes sure you can’t just call this a vintage apartment. It’s an excellent example of how well vintage and modern design go together and it sure is a timeless, elegant and modern apartment.
It’s been a super slow week on the real estate market in Sweden. Normally I am overloaded with great homes on friday, but this week there was almost nothing (are they having a 2 week Easter holiday or something?). But luckily, thanks to Alvhem Mäkleri, we can start the weekend by dreaming over a traditional Scandinavian styled home. Like most Scandinavian homes, this one is decorated with only the essentials in soft, natural tones. I love the effect of the grey wall in the living room, it’s a nice change and a bit more special then a ‘normal’ painted grey wall. I started blogging with mainly Scandinavian homes, over the years my style has changed a bit and I’m now also more looking at other styles but in the end a Scandinavian styled home will always make me happy. Have a nice weekend everyone!
In a former industrial building that has been turned into apartments lies the monochromic home of photographer Pia Ulin. The apartment of 100 square meter in Brooklyn is a home, studio and office all in one. The place is cleverly divided by walls that do not touch the black ceiling, which gives a feeling of space. The apartment is decorated in colours from grey to black with the occasional touch of red in the rug and the seating of the bench in the office space. Despite the dark colours, the home feels not dark thanks to the gorgeous large windows that flood the apartment with natural light. That Pia loves photography is obvious in this apartment, it is filled with great photographic art in every room of the house. I absolutely love this monochromic New York home and I’m definitely getting some bedroom inspiration from that dark bedroom with the picture ledge behind the bed.
The owners of this former farm in The Netherlands couldn’t get their home quite the way they wanted, until they asked their daughter who transformed their farm into a beautiful home that according to the owners ‘feels like staying in a hotel’. They painted the entire home white, including the original wooden beams, which makes the home very light and to add some colour they painted the wall in the kitchen a lovely blue. The home is decorated with unique vintage items that the owner loves to collect which fits perfectly with the old feel of the former farm.
Lovely small home for sale by real estate agency Lundin. Filled with photographes and (vintage) camera’s, this must be the home of a photographer.
Yesterday we visited the home of blogger Johanna Bradford that had come up for sale in Göteborg. Today we take a look inside the tiny studio apartment of blogger and interior stylist Josefin Hååg that has been put up for sale through real estate agency Fantastic Frank in Stockholm. Even though the studio apartment is only 20 square meter it has everything you need in an apartment, the tiny home has a sleeping area with a double bed (and a wonderful gallery wall), a dining table, a sitting space and a tiny kitchen. She has kept her studio simple, only using white, grey and black and because of the large window the studio feels very light and even spacious. This tiny studio apartment is the absolute proof that bigger isn’t always better!
Only last week I became completely in obsessed with this home of blogger Johanna Bradford when she posted a home tour on her own blog photographed by Kristin Lagerqvist. I posted those wonderful images on Tumblr and today we get spoiled with even more fantastic photographs of her home, because it just hit the market through real estate agency Entrance Mäkleri. Anders Bergstedt, who photographs for Entrance Mäkleri, never fails in showing us the most wonderful photographs of the most stunning homes in Göteborg and they certainly don’t disappoint this time. I love the soft tones, the use of wallpaper and the vintage feel you get from this home. I wouldn’t change a thing if I were to move in!
It must have been years ago that I first saw images of this home photographed by Petra Bindel, I probably posted them on my Tumblr at the time, but a complete home tour (that was featured on Elle Decoration this week) of this light Scandinavian home is just too wonderful not to make a proper blog post of. This home is completely in the style that Scandinavian homes are so well known for. Use of colour is brought back to a minimum and the colours that are used are very soft, like the grey sofa, the green piano and of course that beautiful mint green kitchen. I’m thinking about creating a workspace in my own apartment and it has crossed my mind to make one in front of my French windows, so the office in this home is definitely an inspiration for me personally. Same goes for the living space in this home, I love that the sofa is freestanding, I don’t like it when furniture is always pushed against a wall, it can create a nice feeling of space if you take furniture from the walls. This apartment is definitely a perfectly styled Scandinavian home.
Jewelry designer Rebekah Notkin lives with her family in an architectural designed townhouse from the 1930’s in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. They wanted to preserve the original details of the home so they oiled the original wooden floor a dark brown. This combined with the dark blue walls creates an intense atmosphere that embraces the home’s original architectural features. As in her jewelry design she decorated her home with composition in mind, so there must be a balance: ‘something high, low, soft and hard’. The home is decorated with pieces that have history and are collected by Rebekah and her husband through their lives, especially the art deco style is one that’s prominent in their home. Gosh this home is so beautiful, I love the dark blue walls in combination with the dark wooden floor, it gives the home such a warm feeling.
