Man, this whole trying-to-be-productive-even-though-the-kids-are-off-school is just not really working out. I’ve basically given up. I’m just going to embrace the fact that I will be confined to play parks surrounded by screaming children or covered in glitter for the next week or two. Actually, as I write this, I am in fact sitting in a horrendous indoor play area. It’s so loud, you guys – audibly and visually. But look – this Scandinavian apartment isn’t! It’s light and bright and calm and I’ve been pretty much obsessed with it since I discovered it months ago on a real estate listing from Stockholm, Sweden.
Proof that a Chesterfield can work with almost any design style, right?
There’s such a good mix in here. Classic furniture and details like the sofa in the living room or the subway tile in the kitchen, sitting pretty next to modern Scandinavian pieces and a decent dose of Ikea.
The three bedrooms are perfectly simple, letting the industrial architectural details and those stunning beams really shine. Two of them are little loft spaces. I think that’s part of what I find so appealing about this apartment – it makes such great use of space. The areas with functions like sleeping and studying are all small but perfectly formed, maximising room for living and socialising.
And such a cute little balcony, right? I could happily live here, thank you very much.
