A Scandinavian Apartment with a Warm Living Room and Rounded Walls

This charming turn-of-the-century apartment in Sweden has some lovely features. It showcases period features from when the apartment was built in 1903, like a working tiled stove, stucco, ceiling rosettes, and high baseboards. And the apartment also has rounded walls, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, that add a unique look to the rooms.

The 61 square meter apartment has high ceilings and large windows, making the rooms feel light and airy. The classic base of wooden floors and period details are paired with a beautiful, warm color scheme of terracotta, yellow, green, and light pink.

The apartment is styled by the talented design trio JosefssonLjung, who often style Swedish homes that are put on the market. In this home, they pair the classic architecture of the building with midcentury and modern furniture and home accessories for a unique and cozy home.

living room with orange pink terracotta shade on walls and bookshelves

I love the warm orange-pink color that they have put on the living room walls. It’s a shade you don’t often see but it creates such an inviting atmosphere to the room.
