An Open-Plan Swedish Apartment with Golden Tones

Going for gold today, or at least a golden tone. And it looks so beautiful in the Autumn light. The timing feels apt as last night my daughter was telling me that her North facing room felt 'cold' and I was explaining the importance of using tones with a red undertone to add warmth. 

I am not sure which direction this lovely Stockholm apartment is facing, but the golden tone on the walls will help the day feel sunnier no matter what - and at night it will ensure a cosy warm glow. The fairly neutral shade also serves as a calm backdrop for lots of art, books, plants and mid-century pieces - some of which are true Swedish icons! 

Ready to feel inspired by this open-plan living space? Step this way! 

Poufs are fantastic for small spaces since they can easily be moved around and used for extra seating or a foot rest. My friends and I have found the perfect pouf in this one from H&M - it looks pretty, fits in with any style and is perfectly firm when used as seating. And no, this isn't sponsored - I just like a good purchase when I find one! 

A yellow rug on the floor compliments the warm 'desert' tone on the walls. 

The Lamino armchair in sheepskin is a real Swedish classic. It might not look that comfy from afar but it's ergonomically made in a way that perfectly fits your form, hence why it's so popular! 

I love this home office nook which harnesses natural light from the window. String pocket shelves on the wall to the right are another Swedish classic! 

The dark kitchen units add contrast and depth to the open plan living space, while a long rail offers storage in replacement of upper cabinets. 

Despite being a small bedroom, the owner has found space to store books flush against the wall - using the full height of the ceiling (small steps ensure they can reach the highest row!). 

I hope you enjoyed this warm Swedish open-plan apartment and that it's given you a few ideas for your own home! 

Did anything stand out to you in particular?

  1. It's nice to see some warmer tones in decorating. I got tired of everything being gray (at least in the States). A little gray is fine, but constant gray is depressing.

  2. I am forwarding this to my sister, who has a beautiful living riom painted in yello. We should usr this wonderful color more often

  3. There is so much to like in these photos! Light, airy, elegant - just about perfect!

  4. I love this apartment!
