In this apartment in the capital of Sweden, the traditional black and white combination was replaced by a duet of black and beige. No less practical, but it looks more interesting and fresh. One more smart solution is zoning in the kitchen, where the console serves as a cabinet and bar counter. We also liked the design of the headboard, which serves both as a shelf and a hidden bookcase. The children’s room is also designed in the same color scheme, but in order to make the room more interesting for the baby, the parents added the chalk wall for drawing and creative wall decor. Great new look on the Scandinavian design!

Though this modern house is located right in the middle of the city of Antwerp in Belgium, the interiors have a freedom and airiness of country living. This was possible because designers of Am Designs did not load the space with plenty of furniture, used the only light shades in decoration, and added huge windows throughout the house for the most of daylight. At first glance, the design may seem simple, but in fact it is top-level work!

The owners of this apartment in Madrid moved here 20 years ago, immediately after the wedding. Since then, their children have grown up and the owners wanted some changes at home.
