White interiors are not the prerogative of only Scandinavian designers. White color also looks awesome with famous Parisian interiors, which in many ways are even more elegant and artistic than their Scandinavian counterparts. Just look at how easy with the help of small details of French design, just a white space turned into a wonderful home for a big city. Pure beauty!
Aged wooden furniture and sofas, natural pastel colors, fireplace – in this Swedish apartment, designers managed to skillfully convey the atmosphere of an old country house.

The home turned out very unique and cozy!
The building where this apartment is located has its name and even own page on Wikipedia. Osborne apartments – a historical building in the center of New York, built in the distant 1885 and is a well-known architectural monument of the city.

The interiors of the apartment, although they have a classical base, are designed in a bright and slightly playful style with the use of colorful furniture and colors. Great design!

Black, white, gray and brown – this combination is increasingly becoming a classic for Scandinavian interiors. It is universal, but brown, beige or copper imparts warm to the room. It is this palette that was used in this apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden. Opposite wooden and brick walls helped to diversify the space in the main room, uniting the living room and kitchen space. There is also a bedroom and a small guest room with a couch. The home looks very stylish and comfy!

In this cozy little cottage in a quiet suburb of Stockholm, the elements of traditional Scandinavian country design and modern Swedish city apartments are mixed.

Inside a simple wooden wall and ceiling finish, as well as classic wallpaper perfectly coexists with modern furniture, tiles and stylish photo frames. Enjoy!
Country house and natural materials are just made for each other: the owners of this home in Spain chose just this combination, and they did it right! However, in pursuit of naturalness, it is important not to make the interior too boring and old-fashioned.

At the same time, color choice is very bold: fuchsia, lemon, orange, red and turquoise. Perhaps, the country house in the 21st century should look like this. Bravo!
Some time ago we posted about beautiful kids rooms from the portfolio of the American stylist Kate S Jordan, but this is not the only good thing about her work – she decorates “adult” interiors for leading brands and companies with the same passion and great style.

In the past, this building on the Estcourt Road in London was used as a tire shop, but in 2017 the house got a new life – not it’s a stylish modern apartment. The new design is based on the combination of black, white and gray colors with touches of warm tones. The home does not have many windows, but here it lots of light, thanks to the large window in the ceiling of the living room. The interiors are not overloaded with color combinations and complex shapes, but at the same time it turned out to be very voluminous, relief: wood, partitions, white brick wall, mosaic in the bathroom – all this makes the apartment look interesting and fee comfy.
