I’ll admit, I like dark homes. For me it feels like walking into a warm nest. So this dark home is definitely looking good to me. The home is completely painted in grey tones. The living room and bedroom are painted in a beautiful dark grey with a light wooden floor.In the kitchen they kept a lighter palette which suits nicely with the Frama cabinets and concrete floor. Like a true design home, there’s no unnessecary clutter. You can see that every item has been carefully selected, resulting in a design home that’s not only beautiful but also cozy.
Yesterday I also posted a beautiful apartment in a mixture of styles. Today I show you this apartment in Gothenburg that is decorated in a beautiful mixture of modern and mid-century design. The apartment is styled with pieces from IKEA to flea market finds which makes the home very personal and stylish (not surprisingly from two people who both work at IKEA). But my favourite part of this home is the stunning green wall in the living room. This shade fits perfectly with the tan leather sofa and adds some colour and warmth to the space.
A little bit of Parisian charm in a Swedish apartment. This beautiful apartment belongs to Pernilla Algede – a freelance creative director of real estate agency Alvhem. Her home is a mixture of personal, eccentric and vintage design. The home is only small but every free space on the walls is packed with art. The walls are painted a soft grey color and the wallpaper by Lim & Handtryck adds some soft pink to the living room. In the bedroom a curtain hides the closet space and a small workspace is placed in front of the window. I absolutely love this home, it is personal, cozy, art-filled and with a nice vintage and Parisian touch.
A good combination of old and new design is something I hugely appreciate. On first glance this canal home in Amsterdam looks very modern. But luckily they preserved many historical details such as the wooden beams and the exposed brick wall. The kitchen and dining space is situated in the middle of the long apartment. Very clever, a steel and glass roof gives the kitchen space some extra natural light. The steel staircase leads to the bedroom and workroom. Even though the spaces are mainly white, the wooden beams give the apartment the historic charm you can expoect from a canal home. What a wonderful home, minimalist design with historic charm on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam.
Living in only 19 square meter is probably not everyone’s wish. But this tiny studio apartment that came on the market yesterday shows that it is possible. They decorated the studio with only greys, whites and black which is typical for a Scandinavian home. They certainly didn’t clutter the studio with only a (day)bed and a small bistro table bút there is plenty of artwork and pillows which gives the space a cozy feeling. It’s not enough room for a lot of entertaining, but a studio like this is ideal as a pied-à-terre or for a student.
I’m in love with the home of former model, stylist and blogger Malin Persson. Malin left the hectic life in Italy to set up home in southern Sweden together with her husband and 3 children. Her home has this lovely bohemian style with plenty of space for the kids to play in. From vintage pieces to new decor, everyhting seems to compliment each other perfectly. You can definitely see that it is a house that’s being lived in and therefor it feels very personal and cozy. I’m absolutely in love with this home and I just want to soak into that wonderful copper bathtub. Isn’t it perfect?
I’ve been in love with Lotta Agaton’s home ever since I first set eyes on it. It was probably on instagram that she posted snippets of her moody grey home in Stockholm. Last year the home was photographed by Pia Ulin for Residence Magazine (see those pictures here). Now Lotta has put her home up for sale and again we can swoon at her perfect styling and moody rooms. Not everyone would dare to paint not only the walls but also the ceiling grey. But this home demonstrates how beautiful it can be. Who says that grey is boring?
Designers usually say that when you’re living in a small apartment you have to keep it light to make the space look bigger. I don’t think that’s true and this apartment in Stockholm shows that small apartments can definitely be painted in dark colors too. The apartment is only 44 square meter and is completely painted in dark hues. Together with the gorgeous wooden floor they created a beautiful warm and cozy apartment.
New week and what better way to start it than with a nice Scandinavian apartment. Again, this apartment has industrial glass doors just as the apartments I posted last week (which you can see here and here). This apartment is also styled by Scandinavian Homes and you can see their specific decor style clearly in this home. I’m absolutely in love with this bedroom and the glass wall and door is so stunning!
If you’re very keen on privacy for your bedroom, this might not be the best idea. But it does give a small apartment a more spacious feeling if you add a glass wall. These glass industrial walls is something you see a lot in Scandinavian apartment right now, you can see it as well in the apartment I posted earlier this week. It’s really a lovely way to keep the natural light in all rooms and it’s a nice eye catcher. But if you want to have a private bedroom it might be a good idea to add some curtains.
