Modern interiors with uncluttered looks, where sleek lines and minimalism are rules of thumb – This is what I usually fall for when it comes to interior design.
But once in a while, my heart beats for a casual, slightly crowded decor with no designer furniture in sight. A home filled with objects and furniture the residents gathered over time, with lots of plants, books, art, vintage pieces and flea market finds.
This is not entirely surprising though, since I love a personal, eclectic interior that tells a story. After all, that’s what makes a house into a home, and what gives it a unique appeal. And this Stockholm apartment I am showing you today surely fits the bill and has character in spades! It is contemporary yet very understated and casual, with eye-catching elements. It feels welcoming and casual, not overly styled.
