Open-Plan Apartment With A Very Fresh And Cheerful Interior

It’s been a while since I had to take a look at a Nordic apartment and I have to say that they’re just as beautiful as I remembered. Today’s subject is this spacious apartment. It has a surface of 73 square meters which is plenty of space, especially when you think of the fact that Nordic homes are usually airy and spacious no matter their size.

 The thing that I really about this particular apartment is the color palette. Of course, you’ll say that it’s the usual combination of white with a few touches of color.

 That’s true but I really like the fact that those touches of color are not the usual strong shades but rather light shades that add a touch of freshness to the space.For example, that area rug from the nursery is not blue but light blue and it’s strong and vibrant and the orange pendant light is semi-transparent.

 The apartment is very airy which is to be expected from a Nordic apartment. The floor has a light color and the walls are white. The living room and the kitchen and dining space are all part of the same open plan and there are no walls between them which emphasize the ease with which you get to socialize and interact with everyone in those spaces.

 The furniture in the apartment is nicely chosen. Notice the textile sofas and the simplicity of the designs. They all work together to make this space comfortable and welcoming.{found on site}.

One-Room Scandinavian Apartment With An Interesting Layout

Although moving into a one-room apartment is not something I would ever consider, I have to admit that there are plenty of such spaces that look amazing consider the actual size. They have homey and inviting interiors and they look surprisingly spacious. Some also have very interesting and ingenious layouts, like this Scandinavian apartment for example.

 The distribution of the spaces and the layout are definitely interesting. The interior décor is quite unusual as well. It’s a combination of modern and rustic. The exposed brick walls definitely add a rustic touch to the whole space and they make it feel more warm and cozy while the minimalist modern furniture and some of the other features create a strong contrast throughout but also contribute to an overall balanced décor.

 This is an apartment that basically has two levels. The bottom level is the main living space which includes the living room and the kitchen as well as an intimate dining area. The top level is tiny and it basically only contains the sleeping area. It has a bed and a sconce and nothing more.You can access the sleeping area via a small staircase and it’s not actually a separate room because it’s not fully enclosed. Underneath this sleeping area is a work space with a small desk and a chair.-Via

Attic Apartment With Generous Skylights And Nice Views

I have to say that attic apartments aren’t my favorite type. They just seem like they could have had much more space inside but they don’t because of the roof. But there are also good things that can be said about attic apartments and about this one in particular. The shape of the roof gives you the opportunity to include many skylights into its design, as you can see in this case.

 The skylights let in natural light but they also connect you with the exterior at a very special level. Also, even though the roof means lack of space which could be used for storage or for something else, its presence also makes the apartment feel a little cozier and very inviting.

The walls and ceiling are white and the floor has a dark shade of brown which I personally love. It contrasts with the walls and it also gives elegance to the space. Smart storage solutions were found for everything in the apartment. You can see lots of shelves and cabinets placed in strategic areas and in all the corners of the apartment, in spaces which would otherwise remain empty.{found on alexanderwhite}.

Former Soap Factory Converted Into Beautiful Loft Apartments In Milan

We’ve seen many old factories and commercial spaces which got transformed into private residences or apartments but we’ve never seen a soap factory in this position. There’s a first for everything so here we are, talking about what used to be an old soap factory in the center of Milan Italy. The factory is now a series of loft apartments and gives us no clue about its past and initial role.

 But let’s focus on a specific loft and take a closer look at it. This is a space transformed by industrial designer Federic Gooris and Architect Werner Silvestri. It’s a dream home for its owners and a great family residence.

 As you can see, there’s a strong industrial vibe here and that’s no surprise considering the designer that worked on the project. But the space is also modern, simple and very chic. The arches brick ceilings and the wooden floors are amazing and very charming.

What’s nice and interesting about this space is the combination of simple, raw and glamorous details. The space serves as a home and office for the family that owns it. It has an interesting layout with a glass-encased staircase with a very elegant and chic vibe. The living area is where it’s easiest to notice elements that are reminiscent of the building’s past such as the factory-style windows.-Via
