Period Details and Light Rooms in a Scandinavian Apartment

On the ground floor of a beautiful brick house in the national romantic style in Stockholm lies a wonderful family apartment with a unique floor plan, period details, and cozy rooms.

The layout is unconventional and exciting, and it is laid out to use all surfaces. The open-plan kitchen and living room form the social heart of the home. Two cozy bedrooms, each with a working tiled fireplace, are located on opposite sides of the home. As a bonus, there is also a cozy sleeping alcove.

The current owners have lived here for seventeen years since their children were small. According to them, it’s the perfect family home with access to the courtyard where children can play. The apartment is charming, with high ceilings, wooden floorboards, and period details, and I can see why the owners lived here so long.

Storage can be found in all kinds of places, the space above the front door is perfect for shelves that can store books or storage boxes for small items you don’t need on a daily basis. It’s a great storage idea for when you have a small hallway.
