This wonderful apartment is located on one quiet and very beautiful street in Amsterdam, in a traditional house like in a postcard. The total area is 61 sqm and it consists of a spacious living room-kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. The light finishes were complemented by stucco moldings and a glass partition separating the rooms. But the main feature is furniture and decor. Everything mixed here: classic, modern, and oriental motifs. A special mood here is created by gold and silver details, as well as brown and terracotta color tones. Very stylish and completely non-conservative home in a house built in 1906!
If gray and beige shades are rather common in Scandinavian interiors, then you will not often find an apartment in Sweden with green and yellow accents. These color details here are rather timid, not at all screaming, but even they, combined with snow-white decoration, add to the interiors an incredible freshness. The beautiful lemon tree seems to be the center of the whole home. It is echoed by paintings, textiles and greenery (this, by the way, is another proof that the plants wonderfully change the space). Nice city living!
A small size of the apartment always throws the owners a challenge – what to sacrifice for the sake of comfort. Owners of this small flat (44 sq. m) in Stockholm had to compromise in only one – the sleeping area which they placed under the ceiling so that there is a study below it. Between the bedroom-study and living-dining room there is a small kitchen, which is connected to the corridor. Interesting, that even in the smallest apartments in Sweden there is a small cozy balcony, where it is customary to take time for a cup of warm drink. Did you know that the Swedes have a special word that denotes the tradition of taking a break from work to drink coffee? And this tradition is called “fika”.
If you want to let more light into some rooms, glass partitions can be a good choice. This is what the owners of this apartment in Sweden did. From the living-room area, two small bedrooms are visible. The room on the right got a window, while the other on the left would be completely dark if not a glass wall. Also, white decoration and dairy and gray furniture and decor helped to make the interiors lighter. A practical and chic modern apartment!
The main feature of this Swedish apartment is the view of the bay, which you can admire from the cozy balcony. But inside there much more to see. The typical Scandinavian interior is flavored with interesting posters, photos and colored decor elements – especially the pink armchair. In the owners’ collection there are also a lot of unusual dishes and an impressive number of green plants. Lovely home!
The color scheme of this Swedish apartment consists of white and gray base and touches of turquoise and pink. Pastel colors not only softened and diversified the interiors but also created an atmosphere of spring. A lovely balcony drowning in flowers also added to the light and lively character of this home.
Minimalism and Scandinavian style are excellent companions, owners of this apartment in Oslo believe. And it is hard to disagree. This home is not overloaded with furniture or vivid colors, there is also not many of accessories, only some books, modest flowers, and lamps. A special plus of such apartments – at any time you can add catchy details and colors, but, as a rule, tenants of such apartments do not want this, because they love the ease and simplicity!
Scandinavian interiors can amaze with their contrasts. In this Swedish apartment, the ceiling with stucco molding and antique watches perfectly coexist with chic photographs, pencil drawings, cushions with prints and modern furniture. This game of opposites makes the interiors live and extraordinary. To chose fancy contemporary details in the apartment in the old house requires a certain boldness, but the result is worth it. Great home!
Two vintage faience ovens are really the central design elements in this 59 sq. meter apartment in Sweden. Most likely they inspired designers to use beige and orange details, which, like wood, give warmth and comfort to a monochrome interior. Scandinavians have a unique ability to skillfully decorate even the most ordinary nook – for example, a simple tiny balcony here was decorated with a garland, and now this is not just a boring balcony, but one of the main attractions in this home.
This small Scandinavian apartment is open to a lovely courtyard. Its light, air and the atmosphere of romance freely penetrate into the home. Slipping off the roofs, warm terracotta shades first painted the delicate balcony, ran past the laconic white kitchen. Powder pink gently touched pillows, paintings and lampshades in the living room with its haze. Easy breakfast in the mini dining room at a small table, as in a street cafe. Or maybe sincere conversations in the evening on the open air? Herbal tea, plaid and glare of light bulbs… All in this space is a part of an open dialogue with the street and the roof slopes. Lovely!
