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.
The wire mesh noticeboard is a brilliant idea together inspiration, display postcards and collect post in the hallway.
Lots of easy ideas and inspiration to takeaway. Could you live here?
