A Classic Stockholm Apartment with Floral Wallpaper

A harmonious blend of historic elegance and contemporary comfort turns this home in the heart of Stockholm into a cozy and stylish family home. Dating back to 1885, this residence exudes historic charm with details such as ornate stucco, tall floor plinths, graceful double doors, tiled fireplaces, and soaring 3.3-meter ceilings.

The layout is designed to accommodate both relaxation and social gatherings. The kitchen and lounge have spacious living areas, perfect for hosting dinners and events. Emphasizing practicality, the floor plan offers impressive continuity and ample space for everyday family life.

The apartment is decorated with floral wallpapers and beautiful, serene paint colors. While the living rooms are decorated in darker colors, the kitchen and bedrooms have a light color scheme. This apartment is truly special. It feels so cozy and inviting; I could definitely see myself living here.
