A picturesque property from the 1600s in Stockholm’s scenic Old Town was the “context” for developing a modern apartment spiced up with classic details. Discovered on Skeppsholmen, this fascinating Scandinavian duplex has a total surface of 112 square meters and three rooms. On the bottom level there is a large hallway, which leads towards the main bedroom as well as to a large storage space for clothes and shoes.
There is a single bathroom in the apartment, also located below. Classic stairs lead the way to the spectacular upper level, where exposed beams create a cozy atmosphere. It is here that you will find the open plan living and dining space- a bright and clean interior, flooded in natural light from the windows/ skylights. As in most Scandinavian homes, the walls are painted in white, generating a strong contrast with the wooden beams and red sofa. The result is truly mesmerizing.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
