This home in Denmark was transformed from an abandoned 1960s house into a stunning monochrome home. After an extensive renovation that took out all the indoor walls and raised the ceiling, the owners got this huge open-planned living space. With two sitting nooks and a fireplace that also serves as a dividing wall between the dining space and the living space this home still feels cozy. The terrace also has several sitting spaces, from a lounge space to a covered dining space. It’s a garden where you can sit all day long!
This apartment in Norway may be small but it’s absolutely packed with style. Home owner Lone Mariel has transformed this 52 square meter apartment into a unique home filled with vintage items and great colour combinations. Like so many Scandinavian homes the base is white, black and grey but Lone has added some wonderful colours to this monochrome colour scheme. Most notable is naturally the yellow sofa but there’s also brown, dusty pink, copper and the plants add some green touches. I really love this home and it’s no wonder that it’s in the running for Norway’s most beautiful home competition.
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 the colour explosion in monday’s blog post, today I’ll show you the complete opposite. In no other country can they make a home so lovely and bright as in Sweden. This home in Gothenburg is in typical Scandinavian style. A monochrome colour palette combined with wooden elements, the perfect amount of furniture and keeping it as bright as possible. I especially love the attic with a cozy sitting space and attic bedroom. Scandinavian can do no wrong in my eyes!
Laura Seppänen designed this monochrome and minimalistic apartment in Helsinki for pop musical composer/producer Hank Solo. The goal was to create a luxurious and industrial New York-style hotel room. I love how she switched up the minimalistic style with great eye-catchers such as the exposed brick, the wall finish in the bedroom and a piano that has been transformed by graffiti artist Otto Maja. These details give the apartment just the right edge and makes it not look boring. A beautiful minimalistic but cozy & cool apartment in Helsinki.
That Scandinavians can style small apartments to perfection is no secret. This apartment in Stockholm is only 44 square meter but it appears spacious and cozy. The apartment is decorated in monochrome colors and filled with art (which always makes a space look cozy in my opinion). I especially love the peek-a-boo windows between the living room and bedroom which contributes to making the apartment appear larger. I think everythink about this apartment is perfect. Small = good!
An all-white look for the newest interior project by Laura Seppänen Design Agency. The 2-bedroom apartment in Helsinki belongs to head of Cosmopolitan Finland Stina Mäntyniemi. Stina wanted a clean look for her apartment. No rugs, curtains and a monochrome color palette. There was one must have piece for her interior – the Bertoia chair. I love the look of this apartment, it’s clean and fresh without looking cold. A perfect Scandinavian look.
