A Small Attic Apartment with a Golden Yellow Bedroom

On the top floor of a 1940s building in Stockholm, you are welcomed by a very cozy attic apartment with exposed beams and a golden yellow bedroom. The 47 square meter apartment welcomes you with warm color accents and beautiful historic elements that show the history of the house.

The fine original windows in three directions fill the apartment with light and offer views of the lush greenery outside from spring to autumn. The apartment has a spacious living room with a herringbone parquet floor that is original to the house. The seating area and dining area is separated by a cast iron stove that will create a warm atmosphere in the dark and colder months.

The apartment has a small but functional kitchen with white cabinets and stone worktops. There are no upper cabinets in most part of the kitchen which creates a more spacious feeling.
