I wish I lived here: minimal monochrome living

A new ‘I wish I lived here’ post for you – this time, a minimal monochrome apartment in Stockholm on the market with Fantastic Frank. Painted white, with light grey wooden floors, this open-plan home is light, airy and sophisticated. Black accents contrast with its neutral decor, while natural textures bring an earthy, rustic quality to the space. I could definitely live here.

If I was to steal anything from this house, it would be the simple white kitchen. I love the concrete worktop and the brass details – the tap and slim handles – that give character and a sense of patina. The black glass pendants add a beautiful finishing touch, while the ceramic collection is entirely enviable!

I’m designing a similar white kitchen for a client and think this might be just the look they’re after. Ideas to takeaway: taking the units to the ceiling to maximise space, using smaller handles on the upper units for a more minimal look, having a small splash back to match the worktop instead of complicating it with more tiles, and providing a ledge to perch with stools for quick breakfasts and morning coffees.

A cosy nook is created on the other side of the room, centred around a gallery wall and fireplace. I love how the colours of the pictures are picked out with the cushions and knick-knacks on display. There’s a hint of rusty-brown and burgundy red that feels autumnal and perfect for the change in season. Imagine putting some logs onto the fire and curling up on that grey linen sofa.
