Light and Dark Tones in a Stunning Apartment

I have seen so many homes in the years I have been blogging, and I still find new homes with the absolute wow factor. Today, I want to show you this gorgeous one-bedroom apartment in Stockholm that will stop you in your tracks.

This turn-of-the-century apartment is decorated in a light and dark color palette. The colors on the walls are taken from the wallpaper in the hallway, giving the home a nice, coherent atmosphere.

The apartment features many original elements from the year 1899, when the apartment was built. The stucco and woodwork are painted light gray, making them stand out against the painted walls. Modern additions, like light switches and window handles, are in a period style to blend in with the home’s historic character.

The 83-square-meter apartment only has one bedroom, but it does have a generous social kitchen, dining, and living space.

The kitchen is modern, but the Shaker-style cabinets fit the historic home perfectly. The cabinets and the walls are painted in the same soft gray-beige shade with a hint of green.
