my scandinavian home: Shades of grey in a small living space

Shades of grey in a small living space

Monday, 20 October 2014

Good morning, and happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend? It's finally stopped raining here (it's been raining for a week). Guh! It's still grey though so I thought, why not embrace it? After all, there's something kind of cosy about bringing the grey interiors, don't you think? This Swedish space has been decorated using shades of grey and a touch of black and white. It's actually quite incredible as it's only 38 metres square in total. The use of the space is so impressive. I often get questions asking where the storage is in the homes I show. Not here, look at that wardrobe! I also love the use of windows to divide up the different living areas. Great inspiration for anyone that's tight on space!

A few items I know and love. Flos 265 wall light, HAY tray table, chunky moss knit blanket, sheepskin throw, Eames side chair. Dark grey bedding, black Muuto dot coat hooks.

Small space take-aways from this apartment: The same task light can be used for the sitting area and the dining area since it can be easily be swung round. The dining table is extendable for when they have guests. The coffee tables can also be used as side tables. Closed cupboard doors means the space looks less cluttered. The use of windows instead of doors to divide rooms means that light still filters through. a curtain in the bedroom can be drawn across for privacy / hide an unmade bed! The same colour theme throughout (greys and brass) give the space coherence, Anything else you notice?

What do you think of grey?

Have a lovely day!

  3. The solutions in this apartment are really smart and proves that you don't have to use "white and light" to make a space appear larger. You don't even have to go "open plan". I love the bedroom and kitchen solution. Everyone wants a bedroom with privacy, and in small apartments that can be hard to achieve. Here they have even managed to create the privacy with walls...usually it is the other way around - "knock down walls to create a feeling of space". The wall however, have that gorgeus window allowing light to flood to the kitchen. A great apartment! No wonder it has been circulating the blogosphere.

  7. I love how just by going from white to grey, all the colored elements in the home become that much more saturated and rich.

  8. I love it too. Whoever designed the layout sure has talent. I would still paint the walls white though but that is just me.

  11. Such a lovely space! I love grey in different shades, thought long about painting some walls in my home also gray, but couldn't let go the bright and light white walls yet... :) But seeing an interior like this can easily change my mind.
    Have a good week, Niki! xx

  14. I absolutely adore grey and this small apartment is just gorgeous! That kitchen is beautiful with the black cupboards and that window frames it perfectly. And I love the chandelier that you can see through the window. So many ideas going through my head right now... Thanks again!

  15. I love what they've done with this space! After living in Hong Kong I realized quickly how precious space can be. I really enjoy how they've found a way to allow so much natural light into the kitchen with the windows. Lovely!
