We just cannot stop admiring Scandinavian design. The ease and sense of style with which Swedish designers create their spaces without big budgets is something amazing. This one bedroom apartment in Stockholm is another good example of this – the interiors are rather simple and plain, but incredibly cozy and beautiful to watch. Excellent budget living!
Simone Harouche had, it would seem, an ideal career of fashion stylist: for many years she was on the list of the best stylists in the US, and among her regular customers there were celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie. But she got the most glory thanks to creating fashionable images for Kim Kardashian. Despite all the success in the industry, Simone recently shocked many with her decision to drop everything and re-qualify for interior design without having a special education. And more recently, she presented the first project – an extravagant, but cozy house of her own. Let’s have a look?
In the design of this modern country home in Belgium, it would seem that there is nothing supernatural or extraordinary, but look how beautiful is the interior space here. Even by the photographs, you can feel how much air and freshness there is inside. The rooms are not overloaded with furniture and decor, large windows let in a maximum amount of daylight, and natural materials create an incredibly cozy atmosphere. That’s what we call ideal living!
Usually, Swedish apartments that we post here are in old historical buildings in the center of Stockholm or Gothenburg. But today’s two-bedroom apartment (which is for sale here) of 70 sqm is located in a modern new building, hence the unusual layout, the abundance of big windows and a long balcony. The first thing that catches your eye is that the interiors simply bathe in natural light. In general, the space is not overloaded with furniture and decor, the furnishings are minimalistic but cozy and bright. Great home!
Previously, it was a solid, but still slightly outdated in every sense apartment in a historic house in Barcelona. Therefore, the owners, taking into account modern trends in opening space and enhancing natural light, asked designers from the studio Marcos Catalan to conduct a reform in accordance with these criteria. As a result, the apartment now has fewer rooms, but there is one large open space of living room, dining room and kitchen, which is filled with warm daylight all day. Window areas were designed in an interesting way, there is also a compact working zone, an interesting imitation of a modern fireplace. Bright and stylish!
All the walls, ceilings and floors of this Gothenburg apartment are painted white. The owners are clearly big fans of this color and feel in such a space as if in their natural environment. In terms of decor, a snow-white base is always a win-win option, as almost any color accents and objects will look great. In this home, there are only a few inserts of brown and black which emphasizes the designer’s aim for minimalism in everything. Very clean, bright and airy accommodation that inspires. Do you also think so?
This lovely Paris apartment is filled with the ease of being and fresh notes of warm spring air. Daylight almost unimpededly enters this beautiful apartment through the large so-called “French” windows of one of the unique historic buildings in the city center. And further, thanks to the magnificent interior architecture and the yellow-green palette, it spreads easily throughout the home, giving only the most joyful emotions to dwellers. Pure beauty!
The color scheme and decor in this small feminine apartment were chosen to create a feeling of airiness and weightlessness. Only gentle and very light close to white pastel shades, light curtains and textiles, beautiful modern furniture – this lovely apartment evokes associations with zephyr or marshmallow!
The owners of this beautiful country home previously lived in a cottage tucked deep in the woods, so for their new house they had only one wish – as many windows as possible on all sides. The architects from Wade Weissman accepted the challenge and created a truly spacious and bright house, which is abundantly filled with natural light throughout the day. It’s actually a complex of several buildings forming a modern micro-farm. The owners really keep horses here, but their main pride is a unique collection of retro cars!
Monica de Tomas (or Moni Moleskine in Instagram) is not only a tall and beautiful top model, a blogger and journalist but just a normal sentimental woman who has created a real oasis of relaxation and comfort in her apartment in the center of Madrid. Whenever she’s far from home, she wishes to get back to her beloved nest, take off high heels, and just relax with a book on the armchair. And the interiors of her apartment are so beautiful!
