This bright and white Swedish apartment (sold at Stadshem) pairs white walls with white floors that reflect the daylight coming into these historic windows. The kitchen and living room are connected with beautiful double interior doors, allowing for an open-plan layout. The white living room palette is contrasted by a few darker interior elements and a vintage wood desk by the window.
The bedroom is the only room with a darker wall color, which makes the white historic details on the ceiling and the white textiles stand out in a powerful way.
The bedroom, living room, and the kid’s room with an asymmetrical floor plan come out onto the hallway which is fitted with a DIY mudroom bench that provides a creative solution for the storage of shoes and jackets.
A spacious living room with a light palette
The white walls and white floors are paired with a white fabric sofa (it’s the Ikea Soderhamn with a custom Bemz cover*) and a beautiful white and beige chequered area rug that adds a playful effect to the space. The darker textiles and the black leather Eames lounge chair provide the space with a beautiful contrast.
The black tones in the lounge chair come back in the legs of the Gubi Pedrera table, with a glass top, and the green tones in the plants and flowers add a fresh note to the setting.
A vintage desk in the living room corner
In between the double interior doors and the beautiful, historic living room windows, you can find a small home office space featuring a vintage desk. The distressed wood of the vintage table is paired with a clean white Series 7 chair to add a modern touch.
A simple white kitchen with a spacious dining area
The simple kitchen design has white kitchen cabinets that go all the way up to the ceiling for ample storage space. Since the main kitchen module is located on just one side, the kitchen was planned with both upper and lower cabinets on almost the full length of the wall.
The white kitchen is contrasted with a selection of black and wood dining chairs and a wood dining table, which adds a lot of character to the space. The subtle beige area rug separates the dining area from the kitchen visually.
Rather than placing another upper cabinet right next to the kitchen window, a small open shelf provides a spot for a few kitchen accessories.
The white kitchen is fitted with a black countertop on the left, which goes over into a stainless steel countertop by the kitchen sink where water spills are so common.
A cozy bedroom with grey walls
The subtle grey wall color in the bedroom makes the white window and door frames stand out in a powerful way. The mixture of textiles on the bed, the wall rug hanging on the wall, and the fabric pendant light provide the bedroom interior with a cozy and inviting look and feel.
The standing mirror right next to the white Ikea PAX wardrobe reflects the beautiful historic fireplace in the bedroom.
Next to the fireplace, an antique side table in dark wood adds a beautiful touch.
Cute kid’s room with an asymmetrical floor plan
The angled floor plan of the kid’s room is decorated with a cute bed and a play area in an inviting brown and beige color palette that matches the interior of the rest of the apartment.
A white hallway with a DIY mudroom bench
The original shiplap storage unite is paired with a modern wall cabinet in light wood.
The DIY mudroom bench allows two spots for hanging jackets and a shelf for placing shoes. The shiplap finish on the sides and back of this entryway storage piece complements the old wardrobe on the other side.
