This artists loft in Berlin designed by Annabell Kutucu doubles as a home and also a creative studio. The apartment has actually really simple design, but it’s well exposed architectual features make it special: bare white painted brick wall, ceiling beams, extra high ceilings and wide and tall windows together with herringbone floor make it a dream space for a studio.

I always find it very hard to post something new if the previous update here has been so long time ago.. I don’t know where this month went so fast, maybe I was too busy with real interior projects and therefore had less time to post on the blog.

Anyway, this moody and dark and stylish place found in this month’s Residence broke the silence here. It’s a new apartment of Swedish super-stylist Lotta Agaton who’s work is a constant inspiration for me. Her previous apartment, which I shared here, was decorated in much lighter colours. The shift from lighter tones to darker shades is really dominant in Scandinavian style right now and this place is an extreme example of it.

Love the feeling of style and space in this gorgeous loft of one of my favourite photographers Pia Ulin. Formerly living in Stockholm she has now home in Brooklyn, New York. She renovated the whole space with help from architects Bangia Agostinho. The result is spacious and airy, modern and cozy, original and with very distinct style.

This home is featured in the latest issue of Residence magazine.

Last time I talked here how much I loved My Residence bookazine and one of my favorite interiors from there was definitely a little apartment of Josefin Hååg and her wife. So today when I saw on Josefin’s Instagram feed that their apartment is on sale via Fantastic Frank I immediately clicked over there to see the latest photos of this lovely home.

The whole apartment is only 20 m2, but it is very well planned and every square meter is used to maximum. Large window in combination with white walls and white-washed herringbone floor makes this little space airy and light and let’s it show larger than it actually is. I just love the color palette used – monochrome with some warm brown and neutrals gives this apartment really cozy feel. As Josefin is one really talented stylist it’s no wonder that this space is also styled to perfection! If there was only one thing I could highlight it would be the way how she has displayed art on the walls (I have featured it also in this picture wall inspiration post).

I have shared photos of Josefin’s apartment before here – there have been some changes in decorating and styling since then, both versions look stunning if you ask me!

This beautiful apartment in Stockholm belongs to Louise Ljungberg. Styled by Anna Mårselius and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson it was published in the latest issue of Residence magazine. The apartment is an eclectic mix of modern, vintage and industrial styles and has that lovely Scandinavian vibe. Different hues of blue have used throughout the apartment and together with black, white and warm wooden tones it makes such a beautiful and calm color palette. I really love the black framed interior doors and window between kitchen and bedroom – it’s quite unusual that you can see a display of glassware and ceramics above the bed!

This two-room apartment in Finland Helsinki has a clean and fresh Scandinavian style with a hint of romantic vibes. Some vintage items together with newer Scandinavian design creates cozy feeling,  the use of soft wooden tones and graphic patterns on the fabrics makes the interior playful and lively. Residents love for blue color is clearly seen throughout the whole apartment.

Happy new week! We are having some really cold weather here – after warm and black Christmas last week almost every morning greeted us with temperatures below -20 degrees. Today temperatures are finally little higher, but quite strong wind makes being outside still not very pleasant. On the days like this I wish our apartment had a fireplace or stove like this beautiful monochrome Swedish apartment featured on today’s post. Styled by talented Sarah Widman and Elin Kicken this apartment decorated in monochrome and natural materials has this vibe I like about minimalist Scandinavian homes.

Again some interior inspiration from a Swedish real estate page Stadshem. This two room apartment is kept monochrome with the rustic wooden floors adding texture and warmth. The highlight of the space is definitely an over-sized watercolor painting hanging on the wall behind the sofa – something completely different than traditional picture walls!

I thought to start this post with sending my deepest condolence to all of those out there who were affected by the horrible things happened in Paris last Friday, but then I started to think how to say that and realized that instead of the phrase “to all of those out there who were affected” I should use “to all lovely people out there” because we are all affected, just some of us much more closely than others… These are the moments that remind us the fragility of life and importance of living in the moment we have. Importance of showing love and caring each time we have a chance, because only that way we can balance evilness and hate that tries to raise its head over peace and love…

As for the photos above, these are from a two room apartment sale on Swedish Entrance Makleri site. I was taken by the beautiful monochrome art wall in the living room where photos, art prints and a big painting are mixed together to create a focal point in the room.
