Simple and pared-back yet ultra-sophisticated – This beautiful and spacious home oozes class without being all about the bling. Well, sort of – Yes, the luxurious apartment was adequately styled with exquisite furniture and accessories, but it was executed with an understated elegance that Scandinavians are so good at (note: I wrote about the concept of what I call “liveable luxe” before, check out this post). And it is stunning!
An old bakery building in Stockholm was transformed into exclusive residences by real estate developer Oscar Properties, and this penthouse is one of them. Every little detail was carefully planned and materials were handpicked. Indeed, high-end elements such as the oak floors, grey marble slabs, gas fireplace, and XL windows, among others, definitely reflect the 3-million-dollar price tag.
And let’s not forget to mention the fabulous rooftop terrace of 121 square meters/1300 square feet, with nothing less than a kitchen, shower, sauna, hot tub, and spectacular views over the city.
A few things to notice:
– The outdoor space was nicely staged with String’s latest galvanized furniture for the listing pictures.
– The ceiling in the bathrooms is painted in the same dark grey tone as the kitchen cabinets. This provides a nice contrast to the white space, as well as a nice common thread throughout the apartment for a cohesive style. Notice also the subway tiles were applied vertically – Nice touch!
– It is the second home this week on Nordic Design to feature Alvar Aalto’s linen belt-webbing chair (see the bedroom). Created in 1939 and produced by Artek, this design seems to be making a comeback!
– The kitchen was designed with the building’s history in mind, thus the industrial chic look and feel.
What do you make of this place? If money was no object, is this the kind of place you would splurge on?
