Ground floor apartment with a separate entrance fenced off from the street only by a low hedge – an unusual picture for our country, but in Scandinavia this is one of the most prestigious types of housing. This apartment in Stockholm is also very conveniently spread on two levels: a living room with a kitchen on the lower and bedrooms on the upper. Let’s have a look!
Designers of Smith Hanes call their project in Georgia “a residence in a soft industrial style.” Indeed, in design, there are lots of signature style details such as leather, glass, metal, brutal decor, but at the same time, the image was diluted with soft tones, flowers and lovely decor. Black and brown in common areas are contrasted with blue and white in the bedrooms and living room. The combination of contrasting elements in the interior almost always looks good and effective, this trick has worked here too!
This modern apartment in Sweded with colonial motives in decoration inspires with cozy exotic touches. Filled with natural materials, it warms tactilely: the wooden finish of the accent wall, soft knitted plaids in which you want to wrap yourself, wooden steps that are pleasant to walk with bare feet, an abundance of ceramics and handmade textiles. The dining area is inspires with wicker furniture, it looks beautiful in contrast to the strict and simple geometry of the walls. The palm tree adds a touch of luxury to the main room. Enjoy!
Interiors with bright accents or wallpaper with bold prints fade in comparison with this extraordinary apartment in New York. Here, not just styles, textures and images are mixed, but the apartment has its own unique character and even a sense of humor. A strict kitchen with a marble island and immediately a bedroom right in the living room, a working place as in an office, but with a fluffy pink chair, a caricature of the “Mona Lisa” and a picture of puppet shoes. In this home, there was a place for creativity, functionality and freedom. This design is not for everyone, but certainly in a positive way!
This Swedish apartment has almost nothing of typical Scandinavian design that we all used to. Everything here, from the layout to small decor pieces, indicates that this is a unique and very interesting home. Firstly, there is no entrance here – you can enter the apartment through the kitchen from its own cozy front garden. In addition, the home has two levels connected by a beautiful white staircase. But the main feature of the interiors is, of course, a vintage decor that creates a feeling of a cozy private museum or family shop. Incredibly interesting!
Does anybody know how they do it? There is nothing really supernatural and genius in the design of this lovely Swedish apartment, most of the things we have already seen many times before. But Scandinavian designers still managed to create a space that attracts and warms, even in photos. Is not it a great talent?!
If a loft can be luxurious, then this apartment is just that case. Stunning industrial loft on the last two floors of the residential building in Melbourne looks sophisticated and rich. To the typical set of concrete surfaces and metal glass partitions, designers added large paintings and mirrors in gold frames, as well as chic furniture and lighting. But of course, the biggest luxury is a spacious terrace with the best views of the city.
In order to have more light and spacious dwelling, the new owners of this duplex apartment in Madrid had to say goodbye to some architectural elements that remained from the previous owners. Many partitions were dismantled (now there is a lot of open space), a cumbersome spiral staircase replaced by a more concise one in white, and old walls were renovated with paint. Sometimes it’s really better not to complicate!
Two-level apartments have some special charm and comfort. It’s like a small house in the city. So this light ground floor loft in Gothenburg, Sweden, makes only pleasant impression. On the first level, there is a kitchen, a bathroom and a small living room, and the upper floor is occupied by spacious bedroom. Two spaces are connected by a huge window and a brick wall, which makes the home look very organic. Great living!
Paris apartments have a special charm – even with a small size they are almost always practical, and beautiful. In this two-level apartment on the first level there is a living and dining areas, as well as a master bedroom. The kitchen is small, it fits in a small corner of the room and is hidden behind snow-white partitions. A beautiful gray-white range is nicely diluted with a blue sofa and a warm light of lamps. On the second floor, there is a guest bedroom and luxurious bathroom of black and white marble, which could be easily found in a palace or a five-star hotel. Stylish and interesting, as always happens in Paris!
