In this interior a spot of mustard is the stylish trick

When I see a bright and airy interior, I’m for it. This white and grey home boosted with mustard accessories here and there got my instant attention. What a great idea to bring a vivid color in your home! And since the mustard spots are present in every corner of the house, those give the feeling of harmony throughout the entire home. I love the simplicity in this apartment, the rattan pendant in the living room, the mustard pillows and the glass jug used as a floor vase.

The apartment is located in Falun, Sweden, a small city with 38,749 inhabitants…sounds like heaven, a city with less noise, and the building originates back to 1979. The apartment is 82 sqm, it has 3 bedrooms, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom and a hygge terrace. This could be a good fit for a family of 2 or 4. The abundance of natural light flowing through the whole interior is the winner of all the catchy aspects of this home.

Let’s take a sneak peek to get inspired by this wonderful mustard yellow ūüôā

If you are interested, this apartment is for sale, and you can book a real tour at Fastighetsbyran.com. In case this beauty will be yours, invite me for a Latte macchiato as I would be more than happy to drink it in this lovely home.

A light and bright 3 rooms apartment

Usually I seek for natural light and closeness to nature. All the interiors shared on my blog correspond to these conditions. Every time when starting the home tour, I go from inside to outside. This time it’s a little bit different as at this interior, the terrace was the one that captured my instant attention. A small, urban terrace, but well equipped with everything that a person would need to enjoy the fresh air.

This apartment is in one of the most quietest neighborhoods of Gothenburg, Sweden. The building originates back to 1928, and this 72.5 sqm apartment has a few elements that reflects the good old times. The arched windows give a special vibe to the interior, not to mention the abundance of natural light flowing into the kitchen and living room. The interior has a home-office/guest bedroom where the terrace is located too, a calm master bedroom, and an open-space living room combined with an airy kitchen.

The dining area is very light thanks to the white cabinetries and the big windows. Above the table, there is a FlowerPot pendant light. I love the greeneries and the botanical arts on the wall. You can find endless options of botanical wall arts on Etsy.com.

This corner is my favorite in this apartment, it’s the perfect spot for a good book. A daybed like this one can be found at Jysk, if you are in my country, and the bookshelf is an¬†Elfa¬†masterpiece. It is incredible how this brand helps you to find the perfect combination for your storage needs.

Similar solar ceiling decorations can be found¬†here. The nightstand is the¬†BJ√ĖRKSN√ĄS¬†from Ikea.

This wood and white tile combination in the bathroom is a bulletproof styling trick to go, it’s simple, bright and classic, no way to go wrong with it.

That’s it, my friends, about this inspirational home. Don’t forget to use the tags from the end of this post, if you want to see similar interiors. See you next week with another home tour.

Let’s get some fresh air! A villa with blue kitchen is for sale

Lately, I was mostly posting about apartments, not sure why as this was not intentionally. This week I felt I would need more “air”, an interior with a garden where I could go out to drink my afternoon tea. I found this gorgeous villa for sale¬†in Sweden (of course, where elsewhere?), and I instantly felt in love with the blue kitchen and the color spots here and there.

This house was built in 1924, it has 108+60 sqm, and the land area is 681 sqm. It is super cozy with its vintage pieces combined with modern elements. The¬†Kulladal¬†kitchen with its solid wood cabinetry is the winner of all in this house, the kitchen island assures an airy but still very spacious work space. The abundance of natural light flows in on the big windows and the glass door that takes you to a big terrace with dining area. The dining room’s focal point is the yellow cabinet that adds an eye-catching color spot to the room.

The bluish wallpaper is from Sandberg that adds a special feeling to the hall. The black & white floor tiles are so French and chic, and I think these are such a good combination with the wallpaper. I love the home office next to the window, of course this could work only if some kids are not running around the house.

The Devil is in the details…lovely vintage candlestick on the staircase.

The bedroom is relatively small, and calm and its dark wallpaper turns the room into the perfect nest to have a good night’s sleep. Ok, regarding the bathroom, let’s just say that I’m a fan of vintage bath tubes and old fashion white tiles. I still don’t get why these tiles are not trendy in my country…

What a nice interior with cozy and homey vibes. I hope you got inspired by some interior design ideas. This house is for sale, in case you are around Stockholm do not hesitate to contact the Historika Hem guys for further details.

A spacious penthouse with a beautiful terrace

What I love the most in Swedish interiors is that, regardless of the apartment’s type or size, there is always an outdoor space, even if it’s a tiny terrace. Being closer to nature is vital for Nordic people, maybe this is one of the reasons that they can have that specific harmony with nature.

This interior sold by¬†Alvhem¬†is dated back to 1924 and it’s a penthouse with a super cozy rooftop terrace. The 101.2 sqm apartment has 3 bedrooms, 1 kitchen, and 2 bathrooms. The living room combined with the home office corner is on the top floor that takes you out to the terrace. The natural light/sunlight flows into the apartment abundantly, this turns the place into an airy and bright interior. I cannot decide if the terrace with its greenery or the curvy walls are more powerful focal points, I adore both of these, that’s for sure.

At the down floor, the spacious dining room, and the kitchen along with the smaller dining area, lets the owner decide where to have a cozy meal in case guests are coming over. The dominant white color and the light creamy tones go through the whole interior, making sure that the red line of the interior design is assured by the color palette. The bedroom itself is a calm oasis where a good rest is guaranteed.

I hope you like this calming tour, don’t forget to come back to my blog next week for another Nordic inspiration.

An industrial apartment with a sense of history

Ahoy, my friends! It’s a new week with another eye-catching interior. This is an 80 sqm apartment built in 1878 and renovated a few times since then, but with the maximum sense of history. The owners kept all the historical decoration elements giving a magical feeling to the interior. Believe it or not, this house served as a brewery, bakery, mechanical workshop, and dairy over the centuries. For many years, this place also served as a warehouse. The traces of the various activities still exist today in the form of iron and wooden beams, industrial windows, fastening devices, etc. The apartment has an open plan kitchen, living room and dining area, a bedroom, and a small home office.

Take the tour as I shared below a few useful links as references.

The lighting above the dining table is by Tom Dixon. I love the big windows and the rolling door (see below a closer photo of this) to the small home office. The chairs are the ever-green classic CH24 Wishbone chairs by Wegner. With this dining area design, you cannot go wrong for sure ūüôā

The kitchen was renovated in 2019 and the cabinetry was done by the Swedish company, Ballingsl√∂v. Check out their website, they are designing some marvelous kitchens. Take a look at the floor of this kitchen, it’s a real patinated beauty.

The living room’s sitting area is the absolute focal point of the open plan. The brick wall and the Butterfly chair (see a similar one in this interior) give a rusty feeling of the place. Check out the historical decorations on the left-hand side hung on the wooden beam.

The rolling door is a guaranteed design element in an industrial interior design. It’s also super practical as you don’t need extra space to open it. I suggested a similar door in one of my design projects shared in this¬†article. The home office is a cozy place of this home, the vintage desk is beyond beautiful.

I love these candlesticks. The Devil is in the details. Small decoration elements make the whole “trick” in this apartment.

The bedroom is small, but it’s very functional. It has a decent size of the bed, wardrobe, some arts on the wall, and a few beams to keep the red line of the whole place. Every corner of this interior kept at least one wooden beam from the past.
The apartment is in Linn√©staden, Sweden and if it captured your attention, check it out on the¬†Alvhem site as it’s for sale and there are some heavy biddings on it, you might want to hurry up ūüėČ

A one-room interior in neutral tones

I love simplicity, in every possible way, in fashion, in interior design, in people’s personality, basically everywhere where I can sense clear logic, basic values, and no sign of kitsch. When I was looking for inspiration for this blog post, it was my first instinct to choose this super simple, one-room Swedish apartment. It has everything that a person can need, it’s subtle, with neutral tones, and these all together give a calm vibe to the interior.

What particularly caught my attention is the coffee table, the floor (wow!), the abundant natural light, the minimalistic white kitchen cabinets from Nobilia, and the white tiles in the bathroom. I already mentioned a few times that I like how Nordic people design their bathrooms. They keep it as simple as possible but still super stylish and fresh. The color combination in this interior is the ultimate winner, the grey, the beige, the white, and the black go hand in hand together.

This apartment is 33.2 sqm, and it’s in the famous city of Gothenburg. It will be soon for sale, so if you are interested in getting an apartment in the birthplace of the Volvo cars, this is the city you need to be ūüėČ
