Oh hello, gorgeous home! Where were you when I looked for inspiration when choosing my home’s color scheme? I am really into this moody, monochrome palette, warmed up by brown tones. So chic!

Originally designed by Swedish architects Elding Oscarson, this apartment in Stockholm had a more industrial style than what the current owners wanted.

So they enlisted the help of Styling Bolaget to create a serene and refined residence.

Period-inspired elements like detailed baseboards, window casings, wall panels, and moldings, were seamlessly incorporated -as if they were always there- to add impact, interest, and character. 

Together with the beautiful chevron parquet floors, they enhance the luxurious, turn-of-the-century look.

In contrast to the classic interior, the kitchen is quite modern with its sleek lines. The choice of grey cabinets with marble countertops is a timeless combination, and it blends in beautifully with the rest of the space.

The careful selection of contemporary furniture and accessories in this home creates a perfectly balanced mix of old and new. 

I spot products by &Tradition, Asplund, Per Söderberg, by Crea, and Flos, among others, as well as a few great pieces of art.

For a similar two-tone look, here are grey paint color duos I recommend:

  • Eider White + Dorian Gray from Sherwin Williams
  • Ammonite + Purebeck Stone from Farrow & Ball
  • Gray Cloud + Stonington Gray from Benjamin Moore
