One of the perks of my job is being able to see some incredible interiors firsthand, and this attic apartment in the Sankt Eriksgatan neighbourhood in Stockholm. A standout feature of this home is the beautiful exposed beams that can be found throughout. The space has been designed to work with them rather than against them, seamlessly blending traditional and contemporary and ensuring that the apartment has plenty of character. Let’s take a closer look at each of the rooms.
An open plan living, dining and kitchen area make up the main room of the apartment. However, each space complements the other while being clearly defined. In the living area, two contemporary sofas have been used to mark out the area and create a cosy seating area with an elegant marble table at the centre.
The mix of different colours, patterns and textures on the sofa cushions help create an instant feeling of warmth and pick out other shades in the greenery and wall art. Combined with the electric fireplace, the seating area makes for an ideal spot to curl up at the end of the day and enjoy a relaxing evening.
