Another day, another great Scandinavian home! And just like yesterday, I am showing you a beautiful and small apartment that is big on style. I really enjoyed virtually touring this place, and I am sure you will too.
Here are five things to notice in this lovely home and why it works:
- The effortless mix of of high and low design. Here designer chairs and lamps are combined with more affordable furniture and decorative accents from IKEA. This is a great way to make a home look stylish and personal. I personally recommend splurging on a few distinctive items that make a statement which you’ll likely keep for a long time, while shopping on the high-street for accessories that are trendy e.g. if you must have a trend-based, seasonal items.
- Unexpected touches, like the pink pendant above the dining table or the unique combination or prints, also add lots of personality and character.
- Lots of textures – Mixing accents like rugs, throws, or accent cushions in different materials is the easiest way to make a room feel interesting and alive. Make sure there is enough contrast between shiny, matt, light, dark, distressed, and polished.
- Most doors were removed, making the place feel more spacious and airy.
- To help natural light flow into the space, a window was added on the wall between the bedroom and the kitchen.
