Tour A Chic Stockholm Apartment By Interior Designer Louise Liljencrantz

, , , , , , , By Catherine

Today I am taking you on a tour of one of Interior designer Louise Liljencrantz‘s latest project, a spacious 250-square-meter residence in central Stockholm, Sweden.

The refined family apartment is located in a historic building in the posh neighborhood of Östermalm, overlooking the water and the Royal Dramatic Theatre.

The place was renovated while keeping in mind its original opulence and elegant character. A beautiful chevron parquet floor and oversize walnut kitchen steal the show, but the entire interior is a stunner.

The color palette is rich and moody, enhancing the luxurious yet understated look. There is a clear mid-century modern vibe going on, and the contemporary European aesthetic set the tone.

The home was furnished with great design pieces, such as a Paavo Tynell 9602 Floor Lamp and a Stay sofa from Gubi, a pair of Little Petra chairs from &Tradition, as well as a few of Liljencrantz’s own creations.

If you like this project make sure to look at Liljencrantz Design’s portfolio.

    The more I look at this, the more I love it – the colour palette, the mood, the walnut, the amazing floor. I love the warm wall colour in the living area, but is that wallpaper? It is so subtle and soft and seems to diffuse the light. Catherine, do you know where it’s from?
    Louise shows great talent and restraint in this project, it would be great to see her Moodboard!

      I don’t know the specifics of this particular wallpaper, but I’ll definitely be on the lookout! It surely looks luxurious.
      She must have indeed had a clear moodboard for this project, it’s not easy to stay on track with such a limited color and material palette – Harder than it seems! I could try to reach out and see if she would be willing to share it with us :)

    I just checked out Louise’s own home on the link and she has used the same wall paper – looks like a fabric. Also I love the leather banquet style seat in the dining area which are also featured in both homes. I wonder if these are off-the-shelf or specifically made?

      Hi Karen, I am assuming they are custom-built. Louise Liljencrantz is also a product designer, so it makes a lot of sense she’d use her own furniture as often as possible. But if I come across something similar, I’ll let you know :)

    Something about this space makes me feel like I’m thumbing through my grandmother’s Better Homes and Gardens interior design book. It gives me the feeling that this place although gorgeous now will feel really quaint in 25 to 50 years. Y’know, the way wood paneling from the 70’s is now quaint. I like it but I am really attracted to a modern minimalist aesthetic that stands the test of time and unfortunately, I’m afraid this won’t.

    Of all the apartments on show in Stockholm, there isn’t a better one than this one on show. This is the perfect apartment for me!
