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!
Often the right atmosphere in a home is created with the help of details. In this Swedish apartment, the mood is set by original black-and-white photographs and paintings on the walls – they enliven the room and make the interior unique. In the living room – charismatic photos of celebrities and historical pictures, in the dining room, kitchen and bedroom there are graphics and abstract painting, and kids rooms are decorated with photos and images of animals. Also, we really loved the chandeliers in the dining room and living room and the wine cabinet in the kitchen – it looks very unusual. Whichever interior style you choose, it’s details that will breathe life into it, and this apartment is an excellent example.
If you want to enliven an interior you can do so not only with the help of contrast colors and textures but also with accents of pastel tones. In this apartment in Gothenburg the pink color in all possible variations became accentuated. And the individuality and style of the owners were emphasized by original paintings and small details.

Lots of details and nice little things in design does not mean that the owners have nowhere to put them. Such accessories, on the contrary, refresh the house or apartment, fill it with life and coziness. A vivid proof of this is this bright home in Sweden. There are so many details of different colors and “caliber”: lamps, kitchenware, decor, textiles, and, of course, paintings and books. Looking at these photos, it is clear that a happy and friendly family lives here. What a great home!
Brazil as always entertain us with bold and colorful design, and this time it’s also about interesting solutions for small spaces. This bright apartment in Sao Paulo has an area of just 55 sqm but thanks to an open layout and abundant natural light it seems much larger and more spacious. It is necessary to admit color scheme of such unusual shades and combinations. Enjoy!
Sorry, this entry is only available in Russian. But you still can enjoy photos. Сдержанный минимализм и лепнина на стенах и потолке вполне могут уживаться – доказывает этот интерьер квартиры в Гётеборге. Гостиная здесь проходная и ведет в две спальни – получается красивая перспектива, украшают которую помпезные дверные наличники и необычные люстры. Квартира просторная (114 кв.м) так что, помимо стандартных спален, кухни и гостиной, здесь нашлось место для столовой и второго санузла. И, конечно, сложно представить шведскую квартиру без уютного балкона, утопающего в зелени.
This wonderful apartment in Stockholm shows perfectly that plenty of details in the decor could be a good way to add a highlight to your home and make it special. Also, the zoning and furniture arrangement here is just right: apartment’s total area is not so big (only 64 sq.m), but it looks much more spacious. Also note how interesting the Scandinavian interior can be if you take it as a base and add color accents, lots of light and unusual details. So, this style does not at all imply strict minimalism and a combination of white and gray. And we really liked the balcony in this apartment – drinking coffee in the morning with a view of the awakening city is priceless!
Retro and classics could not be better friends like in the interior of this apartment in Paris. Furniture of the 60’s neighbors here with stucco and crystal chandeliers. By the way, such bright colors (blue, orange, pink), are not typical for Parisian interiors, but what a wonderful mix they can make when used properly. A special mood in the apartment is also created by numerous photographs and paintings, unusual mirrors and lamps. Looking at this interior, you understand what is a real Parisian chic!
