A small apartment can still feel spacious, which is something this apartment shows. Despite the size ánd the slanted ceilings it still feels like plenty of space. With a light wooden floor and white walls it definitely has the typical Scandi style. My favourite room is definitely that bedroom. They used a glass wall which in such a small space is very clever. This way you don’t loose any light ánd the room feels larger. I love the colour scheme in the bedroom with the white, grey and soft pink. With a Moroccan rug and the plants the room is complete and I really wish I could lie under that skylight on rainy days!
I don’t think that my love for attic apartments will ever go away. I found another beauty today, a lovely Scandinavian attic apartment in Gothenborg. Decorated in black, grey and white this is certainly a perfect example of monochrome Scandinavian design. The white walls and floor keep the apartment as bright as possible. I’m in love with that wall finish in the living space, it gives the space some extra texture. Oh and if you want to keep fit, you can do your gymnastic exercises on those rings in the living room 😉
After seeing only one image of this home in Amsterdam I knew it would be a stunner and it really is! In a former garage in a canal home in Amsterdam lies this spacious and bright loft apartment. With high ceilings, beautiful orginal beams and many vintage elements the owners transformed this space into a unique and light space. During the renovation they had help of a ‘building biologist’ to make this home as ecological as possible. By reusing materials you’re not only helping the enviroment but I also think it gives the home some extra charm. The entire home is absolutely stunning, but 2 things stand out for me; the bathroom (with bathtub dating back to 1900) and those amazing skylights in the living room. What a dream!
This beautiful country home in Sweden belongs to Robin Berkhuizen. You might have seen snippets of his home when he shared them on instagram. Now he’s selling his stunning home and we can drool at his home with even more pictures. In 2013 he completely renovated this former overnight residence in the time that people still travelled by horse. They only kept the frame of the house and transformed it into a stunning country home where modern and historic elements come together. If you follow this blog you probably know that I love exposed beams and exposed brickwork so I was very happy to see those in this home. Every room in this house looks amazing and the garden space is a perfect luxurious relaxing space.
Attic apartment? Check! Exposed beams? Check! Beautiful Scandinavian design? Check! Plants to liven it up? Check!
An attic apartment is kind of my dream home (in the city) and I really like this. It has all the elements you wish for in a Scandinavian attic apartment, so sit back and enjoy!
It’s one of those days where I just want some simple Scandinavian design. I love this bright apartment in Gothenburg. Neutral colours, bright spaces and natural materials (I love those IKEA Stockholm wicker chairs!). It’s everything you expect in a Scandinavian home and I love it.
Summer is approaching so there are more summerhouses popping up on the internet. When you think of a summerhouse they’re usually decorated in light colours. That you can go the exact opposite way shows this summerhouse in Sweden of photographer Kalle Gustafsson. After a burn-out at age 29 he decided that he should slow down. And of course the best way to do that is to buy a lovely summerhouse in the Swedish country with views over the water. The small home is decorated in blue & grey tones and filled with beautiful design furniture. I completely see why he designed it the way he did. The colors and design are so serene and relaxing. Very nice to see a summerhouse a decorated little bit different.
Give me a beautifully preserved historic home any time and you make me very happy. This apartment in Gothenburg dates back to 1898 and still has wonderful historic features. The home is decorated with wonderful furniture but you shouldn’t forget to look up as well. The biggest historic feature in this home is the painted ceiling in the living room. Isn’t is amazing? Throughout the home you’ll find more original details. That in combination with the design furniture gives the home a beautiful mix of old and new.
I would love a home in the country and this home in Denmark is pretty much perfect. It dates back to 1885 and has views over the ocean. The home has so many wonderful features; exposed beams, bright spaces, nice pops of colour, cozy textures and an attic bedroom (I love attic bedrooms). It has a wonderful combination of styles, textures and of course the Scandinavian brightness. Good news if this is just the home you’ve always wanted because it’s for sale!
Ukrainian architect Sergey Makhno designed this penthouse in Kiev for him and his family. In this penthouse he combined Japanese aesthetics with traditional Ukrainian design such as the clay walls. I love the combination of the rustic elements in the home such as the exposed beams on the ceiling and the stair banistar with the industrial features. The clay walls, wooden elements and plants almost make you think this is a serene country home while in reality it’s in the middle of (the mainly concrete city) Kiev. You can see a lot of thought (and love) went into this home, it’s absolutely stunning design.
