A Light Filled Duplex Apartment in Sweden

Historic elements and modern living come together in this light-filled turn-of-the-century apartment in Stockholm. The duplex apartment is located on the top two floor of a historic building and in recent years it was renovated by an architect into a beautiful light home.

The original elements like stucco and moldings, deep window niches, and a tiled fireplace add character to the home. The newly constructed attic floor features brick walls and exposed wooden beams.

The entire home is painted in a light color scheme which makes the home feels fresh and light.

The kitchen fits nicely into the home’s turn-of-the-century character and yet feels timelessly modern.┬áThe bright doors have a simple frame, the fittings are in brass, and a couple of doors are in glass, which gives an open feeling.
