If you’ve been blogging for ten years, as I have, then you’re bound to come across homes that you have featured on the blog in previous years. That is also the case with this Swedish apartment that came on the market last week.
This is the third time this apartment has been listed, and I have shown the home on my blog each time. The apartment is easy to recognize as the kitchen has remained the same all these years. The stainless steel cabinets, in combination with warm wooden elements, and William Morris wallpaper, catch my eye every time.
The rest of the decor has changed over the years. A new wallpaper was added to the bedroom, and the rooms were filled with different furnishings. But the stylish Scandi look remains. Let’s take a look. And see how the home has changed with throwback photos.
A large south-facing window turns the kitchen into a wonderfully bright room. The stainless steel cabinets are combined with brass fittings and a Carrara marble worktop.
This kitchen showcases a wonderful blend of warm and cold color tones and materials. The cold stainless steel and the light gray floor is combined with warm wood in the shelves and dining table as well as earth tones in the William Morris ‘Pimpernel’ wallpaper.

You see that not much has changed in the kitchen. The William Morris wallpaper, stainless steel kitchen, and white tiles have stayed the same. The only difference is the furniture, and you can see that the kitchen looks great with a smaller round table as with a large dining table.
The living room is a Scandinavian monochrome space that also feature the original wooden floor, a tiled fireplace, and stucco.
Warmth is added by staining the original wooden floorboards in a dark brown shade.
The living room in previous listings
Right now, the living room is very minimalistic, with white walls, a white sofa, and two lounge chairs in black and brown. It wasn’t always like that, the walls were painted in a soft gray shade, and the decor was (in my opinion) cozier in the previous sales listings.
The bedroom is a warm room facing the courtyard. The walls are decorated with William Morris wallpaper in earthy shades which returns in the bedding.
Attached to the bedroom is a large south-facing balcony.

From light gray to the earthy wallpaper, you see today. The first listing’s white and gray color scheme has made way for warmer tones.
The apartment has a small 6 square meter room that is used as a home office. The two-tone walls are painted white and light gray in combination with a light gray floor.

The two-tone wall has remained, but in terms of decor, we went from an antique desk to a more modern set up.
It’s great to see one home styled in different ways, which one is your favorite?
