Friendly Nordic Duplex With A Chill Out Ambiance

Following the typical guidelines of Nordic interior design, this 85 square meter duplex is the type of home that would make anyone happy, even though the surface is not exactly impressive. It’s the whole distribution of the space and the way it’s organized that impressed us.

In addition, the duplex also features a combination of materials that fits like a glove in this space. Exposed brick walls add warmth to the room while also bringing in a little bit of rustic charm. Wooden beams that support the angled roof come out as sculptural elements for the décor.

The living area is a double height space and, together with the dining area and the kitchen, forms an open plan. A corner sectional occupies a small nook with a carved niche illuminated with accent lighting. This whole portion of the room features grey as the main color with a few orange and green accents.

To the right is the kitchen and dining area combo. The angled roof, instead of being an inconvenience, makes this area feel intimate and cozy. Plus, that patterned area rug boosts the whole décor. The whole duplex was very meticulously decorated. Notice how all the colors are coordinated and how the rug and the colorful accent pieces in the kitchen feature the same tones.

Although the kitchen is small and takes little floor space, it feel spacious. The fact that it’s part of an open floor plan definitely helps. In addition, the main color here is white and it was used on the walls and all the cabinetry.

The cabinet hardware is very simple and allows smooth, clean lines to highlight the design. The wooden countertop is a beautiful accent element, complementing the cold white background.

There’s also a small portion of exposed brick in the kitchen, another element that emphasizes the comfortable and welcoming look.

This bedroom is small and painted white but the arched window and that small wall-mounted wooden shelf give it a really cozy look.

Upstairs there’s a second bedroom, also tiny and cozy. The bed is pushed against the angled nook where the sloped roof and the floor meet. The arched window forms a nook where a small desk is placed. It’s the perfect little spot for a work area, with enough natural light and those storage shelves to the right.

The upper floor also contains a welcoming lounge area/ playroom. Just as in the living room, an area rug adds character to the space. This portion is connected to the downstairs zone but instead of being enclosed by walls or railings, it features a more casual approach based on webs.

Not an inch of space is wasted in this duplex, not even the tiny nook by the staircase which has been turned into a storage and display area featuring a series of shelves.

The bathroom is just as cleverly organized. Glossy black cabinetry offers plenty of storage under the sink and also hides the washing machine. Exposed brick allows the bathroom to feel more intimate and comfortable, considering its nature and the color palette used here. The focus in this area is on texture and materials.
