Pastel colors is a wonderful idea in a modern design, with the help of which you can make the interior look more interesting and unusual. The Scandinavians were one of the first who began to intensively use such shades and it is Swedish and Danish designers who are engaged in their popularization in recent years. In this apartment in Stockholm, pastel tones are perfectly combined with moldings and other attributes of the classical style. And it looks soft and attractive!
Aged wooden furniture and sofas, natural pastel colors, fireplace – in this Swedish apartment, designers managed to skillfully convey the atmosphere of an old country house.

The home turned out very unique and cozy!
The building where this apartment is located has its name and even own page on Wikipedia. Osborne apartments – a historical building in the center of New York, built in the distant 1885 and is a well-known architectural monument of the city.

The interiors of the apartment, although they have a classical base, are designed in a bright and slightly playful style with the use of colorful furniture and colors. Great design!
The living-kitchen area in this small Scandinavian apartment is decorated in a calm neutral gray scheme, but the bedroom stands out.

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.

Only the bright orange facade of the house tells this house is located on the Mediterranean coast. Inside interiors of this villa in Begur, Spain, are very calm – the owners were inspired by houses in the American Hamptons.

Of course, there were pieces of sea style decor – fish, anchors, surfs and wicker furniture. Cozy and inspiring design!
After seven years of living in Liguria, Italy, the owners of this villa returned to Sweden and wanted to fill the house with the memories of life in the south. And they did it as elegantly as possible. There are no juicy tones that are common in southern nature, but soft pink, beige and brown colors remind of rocks by the sea, the setting sun and a peaceful nature. The interiors are very modern and fairly minimalistic but at the same time they inspire and give peace and tranquility!
Scandinavian interiors are often blamed for dullness and monochrome, but this small bachelor apartment in Moscow is a completely different story. The owner lived in Denmark for some time and feels comfortable in Scandinavian minimalism. But in gray Moscow he really wanted more color, so that architect Boris Denisyuk filled the interior with touches of trendy pastel blue and pink. Despite the fact that the apartment is in a Stalin-era building and there was not much room for replanning, the living room and kitchen actually were united into one space. In general, this is a rather unusual colorful masculine dwelling.
