In the Swedish city, Höganäs stands a former bakery building, which has been carefully restored into a unique family home. The house is the oldest remaining bakery building in the city, dating from the late 19th century. A bakery was run here in the old artisanal style until 1965 when the bakery was converted into a ceramics workshop and then into a private residence.
The recent restoration of the building seamlessly blends the historic features of the building with modern amenities. The original and dynamic floor plan means the house has grand open-plan spaces that can be easily adapted to your needs.
Even though the spaces are open-plan and large, the rooms feel very cozy thanks to the combination of color, materials, and styles. The decor can be described as bohemian meets industrial meets vintage. What’s not to love?
The living spaces are all connected to each other, the cozy sitting room opens up to the home office and the large kitchen and dining room.
The history of the building is still visible with these old green fireplaces.
Even though the rooms are all open, the seating area is very cozy with a large rug and a burnt orange sofa filled with cushions.
Next to the seating area is a home office painted in a classic dark blue color.
The open kitchen space is divided into several zones, with kitchen cabinets draped around the dividing wall.
The entire living space has a concrete floor, giving the space an industrial style. This is warmed up with rugs, wood, and orange color accents.
The modern black kitchen cabinets are paired with granite worktops.
Dark reddish brown backsplash tiles add a warm touch to the kitchen.
The hallway is painted in a dark moody gray color which is paired with yellow and blue accents.
The ground floor is also home to the master bedroom. The bedroom is decorated in a bohemian style with lots of wood, earthy colors in the textiles, and dark gray walls.
The moody bohemian style continues in the bathroom with a double sink with a wooden top and a large walk-in shower with black tiles.
The second bathroom is a warm colorful space with pink wallpaper and burnt orange tiles.
On the top floor is another family room with yellow-painted floorboards and pitched ceilings.
The top floor also shows the history of the building with the beautiful wooden ceiling beams.
