Lovely and tiny Scandinavian apartment with vintage designs

Wednesday, November 29

Really loving this cute place. While 66 square meters is not much, the look and feel of this apartment is spacious and cozy. 

If you know me, you know that I love the String shelf, it is simple yet distinctive in design and fits almost anywhere. Owners of this home have a large setup in their living room and it looks awesome.
I love how consistent the decor is with the wood and veneer on many of the items here.

Interesting part is the kid's room where the double story bed is made of naked particle board which I am not usually a friend of but it looks really nice here!

Row house with a Nordic perfection and tranquil atmosphere

Thursday, November 16

The architect Ola Jonsson did some amazing work here. This row house located in Östermalm is designed with a Nordic design perfection and the look is truly beautiful.

Inside you can find furniture from Ikea and Jysk along with vintage piece and they all fit together perfectly. With the light gray, white and natural wood tones, the atmosphere is tranquil and calm.

I really like the wooden dividing wall used between the living area and kitchen and the tea drinking area with the legless chairs is a very original, well-developed idea!

Amazing Scandinavian interior with great design and decor

Tuesday, November 14

This apartment is truly amazing. It has a perfect combination of retro and luxury design with a very inviting atmosphere.

The base here is a fantastic space with rich stuccoes, high ceilings, wood paneling and spectacular historical fireplaces.  It instantly provides added value with luxurious atmosphere.

I would like to start with the kitchen as it is fabulous, large and well designed.  With the retro cooker and hood, gold details and gray cabinets it looks both trendy and traditional.  There is also a nice small dining table set but the main dining area is located in the separate room.

The dining room is something I would love to have a place for in my home.  And it would look very similar to this one here. There is a beautiful, vintage Poul Henningsen's kontrast lamp used,  large table and a lovely bunch of black chairs. You definitely should take a closer look at the amazing fireplace with the huge mirror and the carved details on the door frame.

Of course, I can't forget the living room, which is again, very well done. You can find a nice mix of new and vintage design pieces ( like a nice grasshopper lamp ) but nothing is overdone, the place was left so it is clean and spacious.

Nordic penthouse with muted pastel colors

Monday, November 13

Hope you all having a nice Monday. Today, I would like to take a look at a nice apartment of Rikke Larsen from Copenhagen.

Her family lives in a large, 124 square meters penthouse that was recently redesigned by stylist Sidsel Zachariassen. 

The whole place got a new, uniform and modern look. Walls were painted with a mix of gray, pale teal and white and there is a nice amount of other pastel colors used on various decor items.

My favorite part is the living room with the dining area where you can spot very popular Flos wall lamp, nice set of armchair and sofa, cool ceiling lamp, black Verner Panton's lamp and small art wall.

Scandinavian apartment with a perfect decor in Stockholm

Tuesday, November 7

When I saw the first photo I have instantly fell in love with the apartment of Monica Holmvik Persdotter's  family.

The living room design is simply amazing: Large Persian rug, stylish gray sofa, vertigo pendant light and gorgeous art pieces.

I could say same about the kitchen as well  - it looks fabulous with the bluish-gray painted cabinets,  marble backsplash and set of Wishbone Chairs. On the other side, there is a huge library and large double doors painted in blue, which is a very nice touch.

Great place to be for sure, artful, well decorated and cozy!
