Today I am showing you a lovely, sun drenched apartment in Sweden. Thanks to its high ceilings, large windows and crisp white walls, the 51-square-meter home feels bright and airy. Lots of natural shades and different essences of wood were used to decorate the place, making it inviting and warm. It has a pared down color palette with a hint of black for just enough contrast. The style has an effortless mix of vintage finds and designer pieces, giving the home a personal vibe and an eclectic look.
This home has a beautiful simplicity that I love. Very inspiring!
Scroll down a few pictures for how to get the look.
