A Social Scandinavian Apartment with a Light Blue Living Room

The generous living space and open floorplan create a social atmosphere in this Scandinavian apartment. The two-bedroom home is located in Stockholm and is decorated in a wonderful light color palette, with a striped surprise in the bedroom.

The apartment’s continuous floor plan provides a nice line of sight via two pairs of slatted double doors, and the wooden floor extends through all rooms without thresholds or interruptions creating a harmonious feeling.

The recently renovated kitchen and dining room are the heart of the home. This grand space is ideal for long dinner parties with friends and family. The glass double doors between the rooms ensures that every room in the house is light and creates a sense of more space.
