Elegant and cozy, this one-if-a-kind Scandinavian apartment makes a strong impression, no matter what the perspective. Found on Alvhem, the project features three continuous rooms (living area, office room and bedroom) plus kitchen and two bathrooms. All of the interiors have a charming gray and white color palette, inspiring calmness and comfort. A large hallway with cleverly improvised storage space leads the way towards the kitchen and office room. The living area is a perfect place for having guests over and consists of a large sofa, a traditional fireplace, a TV set and a variety of inspiring decorative items. The pendant lights are original and worth studying from a close angle. The bedroom is probably the most welcoming part of the apartment, with its king-sized bed, large windows and yet another fireplace. What do you think are the design highlights of this beautiful Scandinavian apartment?
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
