Monochromatic interior designs don’t always make a space feel inviting nor can they always turn it into a cozy home. But with Swedish apartment it all comes natural. This attic apartment in Stockholm has one of the most serene and elegant interiors you can design with such a simple color palette.
The wooden ceiling beams painted white, the white slanted walls and the beautiful stain on the wooden floors form a perfect match, both simple and elegant with just the right amount of warmth and coziness.
The open floor plan includes a relaxing sitting area with plenty of light coming through the windows. This zone is nicely integrated into the whole volume but, at the same time, delimited by the black and white area rug.
A small dining area is positioned near the sleek white staircase. The white pendant lamp hanging above the table complements it perfectly and maintains a sense of brightness throughout the space.
The other portion of the open floor plan contains the kitchen, tucked away in the corner and featuring white cabinets and an elegant backsplash to match the accent colors used in the apartment.
Although the kitchen is not that big, the compact and well-planned design makes it very functional. There’s even a small island on wheels which also offers storage on the shelves.
The rest of the functions can be found upstairs. Go up this sculptural staircase and watch your step because there are no railings to keep you safe. It’s a design chosen for its simplicity and for the fact that it maintains an open and airy look throughout the volume.
The upper volume is a more private area which includes a cozy-looking area with nothing but a comfy mattress and some pillows. It’s a sort of private hideout where you can go and read a book and take a nap.
The actual bedroom is a separate room with all the necessary features. The color palette remains simple, including shades of gray, black and white plus the wood tones.
The white furniture disappears into the white walls, allowing the room to feel spacious and bright.The sleek shelf give the possibility to display framed artwork in the same tone.
We love the clever combination between a chair and a lamp. It’s a sort of nightstand with two functions and adds a nice casual feel to the décor.
The rocking chair is also gorgeous. It;s exactly what a bedroom needs to feel cozy and inviting, given the monochromatic interior.
