A Swedish Apartment with a Yellow Living Room

While gray, white, or beige are very classic colors to paint your living room, they are also very safe choices. And when you’re in the mood for something a bit more cheerful, you should definitely take a look at yellow because yellow adds a warm and cheerful tone to your living space.

In this turn-of-the-century apartment in Stockholm, they choose a cheerful yellow shade for the living room walls. The charming apartment used to be two separate apartments, but they have merged the two dwellings into a spacious but cozy three-bedroom home.

The old wooden floors, paint colors, and wallpapers create an instant cozy atmosphere to this home. The floorplan is unique as you can only access two of the three bedrooms via other rooms, instead of a hallway.

If this doesn’t put a smile on your face, then I don’t know what will. The living room is a charming space with windows on two sides to make it light and airy and a warm wooden floor.

The room isn’t super big, but it does have enough space for a seating area and a dining space. Bench seating against the wall is a clever way to add seating without taking up too much space.

The walls are painted in a lemon yellow shade from Farrow and Ball.

The living room is sunny, the master bedroom is moody. The walls in the bedroom are painted black to create a cozy cocoon space.
