Peek Inside a Modern Apartment with a Stylish Retro Vibe

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , By Catherine


This is the beautiful home of Johan Ferner Ström and Mia Bolin, located in a former chocolate factory in Sweden. The apartment was renovated but few industrial elements were preserved; a nod to the building’s history. The dark and cozy color palette creates a welcoming, cocoon-like atmosphere. The place also has a great personal style and feels authentic, like a true idiosyncratic home.

The décor features an effortless blend of modern design pieces with vintage furniture, lighting and accessories. In the dining room, you’ll spot Tulip chairs and a dining table by Eero Saarinen, a pendant lamp by Hans-Agne Jakobsson, as well as with a lovely ceramic collection. I really like the combination with the sleek new kitchen, with its dark cabinets and brass handles. It looks a lot like the one designed by Norm Architects for Reform (it probably is).

Enjoy the tour!



Fluffy textile is a quite popular at the moment, even shag pile rugs are making a come back – And I’m not mad about it! I like the load of texture it brings to the living room and bedroom in this apartment. It also provides a slight retro vibe, while still being contemporary.



Gorgeous look, right? If you like this style, make sure to check out this amazing home.
