An apartment in Stockholm that is not white!

Posted on Sun, 1 Jul 2018 by KiM

I spotted this Stockholm apartment on the Elle Decoration Sweden website and had to share because it is not painted white!!! The homeowner, Helena Sand, did some work reconfiguring the very small apartment along with coming up with quite a beautiful colour palette. The space is still a bit oddly configured with the kitchen now placed in a hallway, and the former kitchen turned into the bedroom (the bedroom used to be included in the living room), but it’s got the necessities and I wouldn’t want to sleep in my living room either.  I am so in love with the colours she chose – a ‘rose-red’ in the foyer (Whispering Red from Jotun), ‘dirt pink’ in the living room (Light Peach Blossom from Little Greene) and lots of dark grey (Jotun’s Vallmofrö, Picky Living’s 4502-y).

And yet the colours feel quite… scandinavian 😛 Beautiful place!
The idea of the hallway kitchen is indeed scary, but it looks quite ‘workable’. Since this is a two-people place at most, traffic should not be an issue while one cooks. Overall I think it is quite ingenious, especially as this was quite a large hallway for such a small space.

Interesting solution and good colours. That room is like apricot grew up, became sophisticated and likeable!
