Refined Swedish Apartment in Earthy Tones + 5 Tips to Make Your Home More Elegant

, , , , , , , By Catherine

I’ve got an inspiring one-bedroom apartment in Sweden to show you today!

It caught my attention for its beautiful and warm color palette, which give a serene feel to the place. It is also a perfect complement to the floors and wooden framed windows.

I am also fond of the curated collection of furniture and accessories – I spot a Tiki sofa, an Etcetera chair, a Snoopy table lamp and Pavilion dining chairs. Hay makes a similar pendant with a laminated oak veneer. The rug in the kitchen looks like it could be from Design House Stockholm, while the one in the living room seems to be by Nordic Knots. For similar sculptures, check our Swede Kristiina Haataja. For prints, have a look at The Poster Club.
