A Beige Vintage Apartment in Stockholm

Beige aesthetic is hugely popular in the fashion and interior world. This form of interior design focusses on light beige and earthy colors that create a warm and peaceful home.

Today, I want to share a home that can definitely be part of the beige aestehtic interior trend. The Stockholm apartment is compeltely painted and decorated in soft beige shades and it is combined with beautiful wooden floors and vintage furniture and decor.

The 99 square meter home in the chic Östermalm district in central Stockholm is unique as it can easily be divided into two homes. The apartment has two kitchens and two bathrooms and both parts have their own entrance. Besides two homes, you can also turn one half into a home office if you have your own business.


In the entire home the joinery such as interior doors, moldings and window frames are painted with linseed oil paint in a warm grey-green color (15% French green umber).


This open plan living room and kitchen lies in the center of the classic home. The room has original stucco, high skirting boards, plastered white brick walls, and oiled herringbone parquet flooring.


On one side, a dining area has been fitted with an l shaped bench and a shelf that provides storage/display space.


The large vintage run in the living room provides some color in the beige/natural room.


On the wall opposite the window a kitchen has been fitted.


The kitchen cabinets are painted in a beige pink linseed oil paint (unburnt umber) that is combined with brass fittings and sink..


The kitchen shows a lovely combination of closed cabinets and an open shelf. The worktop and backsplash are made of Carrara marble.


The hallway has two tones walls painted in white and limestone beige. The room has a marble floor that has been laid in a herringbone pattern.


The first bedroom is decorated with vintage furniture and decor. On the floor lies an oiled oak plank floor.


The two windows with deep window sills overlook the courtyard and flood the room with natural light. You can also create a reading bench in one of those windows.


The small niche in the bedroom is cleverly used as a home office with a custom fitted desk and shelves above.


The small bathroom is clad in Carrara marble.


On the other side of the open plan living space with kitchen you can find the second bedroom. The room has a lovely bay window with built in bookshelves. On the floor lies the original oak herringbone parquet which dates back to the 1940s.


A pleasant surprise behind the headboard is this built in bookcase in one of the window sills.


The second bathroom is larger and features a shower and a freestanding cast-iron bath. The walls and floors are covered with Norrvange Gotland limestone.


The bathroom features an indoor window that brings natural light to the small second kitchen that lies behind this room.


The apartment has a second, smaller kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are painted with linseed oil paint, gray umber, and the countertops are made of Öland limestone.



On the floor lie Cararra marble tiles in a herringbone pattern. Next to this kitchen lies a hallway/storage room with built in cabinets.
