A Small, Yet Soothing Swedish Apartment In Grey-Beige Shades

It's Friday, friends! Yay! It's positively baking here in Sweden - is it sizzling where you are too?! I think this calls for a lovely cool, calm home tour, don't you?  Somewhere we can imagine kicking back with a magazine and an ice-cold drink, while a lovely breeze washed over us from the windows (OK, getting slightly carried away). The apartment in question may not be big, but what it lacks in size, Refine Design Studio has more than made up for in style. The Stockholm based interior design firm were tasked with fitting 21 apartments in a wooden house in Linköping, built by Wilzéns. Led by Natalie Strömberg, they selected a palette of soothing grey-beige and nutty brown with touches of black and white to highlight the incredible design elements. Let's dive in!

On the colour:
"Warm colour range of grey-beige shades together with accents in black and white to create a Scandinavian base with industrial elements."

On the kitchen:
"The kitchen has been given a nutty beige-brown tone with matt lacquered doors and the work surfaces are lined with a white terrazzo HT-Calacatta and chrome details."

On Terrazzo: 
"Terrazzo is an artificial stone made of crushed marble or even of hard rocks and cement. It is an old method which has recently made a comeback in Scandinavia with its vibrant expression and changeability with compound mixed rocks giving the kitchen character and playfulness."

I'm feeling revived just looking at this space. Plus, the neutral scheme would make it easy to make it your own too - perfect!

Is there anything you love about this home?

There's a load more beautiful Swedish homes to be found in this archive! If this pops up first, just scroll on passed. 

Right, that's it from me. I've got two little girls waiting to go for a dip in the sea! And then we're hoping to head up to the summer cottage (can't wait to potter around that kitchen!). 

I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend too - stay cool!

  1. This is very beautiful house decorating.

  2. I love the wide plank wood floors in that light natural tone, looks so tidy!

    1. Totally agree, the floorboards area absolutely beautiful! Danish brand Dinesen do lovely floorboards like these.

  3. It is possible to indicate what the name of the paint colour (and the brand) is on the walls? I'm interested in something similar..

    1. I'm afraid I'm not sure what the wall colour is, however I'm sure the guys at Refine Design Studio would be happy to help you if you shoot them over a mail.
