A converted storefront in Stockholm

Mattias Wikman emailed us with some beautiful photos of his townhouse-style apartment in Stockholm. The space is an old storefront that was converted into an apartment with a own private entrance and some outdoor space. It is located in the middle of Stockholm in an area called Birkastan. I love that all the walls/ceilings/ductwork etc. are painted white. It makes everything so bright and forms a blank canvas for the furnishings. And it definitively feels like a loft so I really dig that. And Mattias has my favourite quote hanging in the photo below - bonus points!

A wonderful and beautiful home.

Well, the view from the couch is just abysmal, but that's the set up and they've certainly done everything possible with the rest of the space. I wish they had a glass roof on the outdoor dining space... a red fridge... :) But the separateness of the kitchen seating area is fabulous, and beautifully lit -- I would have been very tempted to put the living room seating there! The only thing missing is bookshelves, especially with so many kid spaces. Not a page in sight. /sigh/ Beautiful conversion, quirky, personal and human-friendly.

I like the white walls. White spaces are timeless and it allows the furniture pieces and art pieces to stand out.

This apartment is actually for sale now in Stockholm!
