“Located in the bustling neighborhood of the 6th district in Vienna, this 300sqm apartment is a place of retreat for a well-travelled design aficionado. The apartment is divided in two units with seamless connection through wooden sliding doors. High ceilings and big windows create an overall spacious feel. The bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining space is the center of the apartment where friends come together for long dinners and endless talks. A composition of custom-made interiors, wooden furniture, rough linen and carpets, selected mid-century vintage finds and unique objects complement the general monochrome and understated design concept.”
With its restrained palette and casual sophistication this carefully curated home is indeed no ordinary apartment. A signature design by Annabelle Kutucu.

Based in Los Angeles, Stephen Ken and his partner Beks Opperman design home and travel goods. They dreamt about a space they could use to practice hospitality and offer their designs in a more intimate environment, and so this loft was born. Its minimal aesthetic and clean lines really help to showcase the beauty of the space and their designs against such a beautiful backdrop.
Over the holidays Patricia emailed us about sharing her new home, named Hallelujah, with our readers and I was all for it because beachy vibes is totally what I need right about now. Some details from Patricia: I am a retired designer from Columbus, Ohio. We purchased a new home in Grayton Beach, a laid back old Florida type beach town but with new houses too. I spent major part of year in a million stores both in FL and Ohio searching for the right piece and accessory for every room. House has five bedrooms and 5-1/2 baths, 3 decks and faces Western Lake, one of the coastal dune lakes along 30A. We are 300 yards to a huge beach which runs the length of the Panhandle in FL. Our house is in a small gated area (that used to be a petting zoo back in the 60’s) with just six homes that are alike in appearance from the front. Area is known for their coastal dune lakes that empty into the gulf when there has been a lot of rain and it is a very neat phenomenon. I love that Patricia went with more grey tones than typical blues and the earthy vibe is very casual and perfect for the setting. The views across the lake are gorgeous! An all around stunning home, beautifully styled. Thank you so much Patricia for sharing your pride and joy with us.
Imagine an Art Nouveau apartment in Stockholm. Now imagine a renovation with a moody colour palette, a mix of modern and mid century furniture pieces, soft light filtering in through large windows and a layering of natural textures. Actually you don’t have to. Swedish interior designer Joanna Lavén has done it for you. Welcome to the perfection that is Apartment O.
With 10 days to go to Christmas I thought I would try to add a bit more festive vibes to the blog (since neither Jo nor I partake in any Christmas decorating) with this beautiful 49 sq m apartment in Sweden dolled up for the holidays. Home of 20 year old decorator Simon Olsson, it’s a delicious melange of white, grey and black and is filled with vintage finds. So cozy and the sparse pine trees and lighting really make it special. Via sköna hem.
