Elsa Billgren’s Serene Stockholm Apartment is For Sale

The Stockholm apartment of blogger and vintage lover Elsa Billgren has been featured in several magazines and editorials, and you can see why. The two-bedroom apartment features amazing historic details in light rooms with serene and vintage furnishings.

The apartment is located in a premium spot in Stockholm, overlooking Mosebacke Square, a green oasis with maple, willow, birch, and lilac trees and a popular summer café. Despite being in the center of a big city, you are surrounded by nature and charm.

With a ceiling height of 3.2 meters, stucco, ceiling rosettes, mirrored doors, pine flooring, and double-tiled fireplaces, the history of the home is very visible in every room. Elsa and her husband added a new kitchen and bathroom to the historic home, which fit right in with the original details.

Adjacent to the hall and with a window letting in light towards the adjacent kitchen, we find a small room that is now used as a children’s room but it could also be a study. 

The walls are painted in Stockholm White and on the floor lie the original wooden floorboards.

A large mirror is embedded in a niche in the wall which makes the room feel bigger and it’s also an amazing statement piece in the smallest room of the house.
