A Charming Swedish Apartment with a Cottage-Style Kitchen

Located in a cozy courtyard with plum trees in Stockholm, you can find a charming one-bedroom apartment with a cottage-style kitchen. The 58 square meter apartment is modest in size, but it has a spacious living room with a home office and a nice and cozy kitchen.

As in most Scandinavian homes, the owners opted for a light-colored base paired with a beautiful wooden floor and preserved original details from the twenties, like the windows, mirror doors, pantry, and more.

The neutral base with original features and wooden floorboards are complimented by subtle light green color accents in the bedroom and kitchen. what a charming apartment.

The bedroom is located next to the living room. It’s a tiny space that has just enough room for double bed and wardrobes. The room has a calm atmosphere thanks to the lovely light green hue on the walls.

There is no room for bedside tables, but this shelf that is painted in the same color as the wall, brings storage space to the bedroom.

The kitchen is my favorite room of the house. It was renovated three years ago and features new cabinets with light gray fronts, a light stone worktop, and brass fittings.

The green shade on the wall is the same as in the bedroom. This color was carefully selected by the owner based on how the light, filtered through the leafy tree canopy outside the window, shines into the room.
