Who lives here do you think? Looking at the pictures of this charming apartment in the boho district of Södermalm, Stockholm, I can’t help think it belongs to a creative of some sort – potentially working in the field of music. Right or wrong, the lovely living space might be on the small size (it’s 40 metre square / 430 feet square) – but the clever lay out makes it a perfect home for a single person, couple or small family. And it oozes charm! Keep a look out for the eclectic blend of furniture, walls painted in a rich patina, and the way they’ve worked with the original kitchen to create a cosy, warm and inviting space. I could totally imagine rocking around here after work, how about you? Just add music!
A perfect example of how an old kitchen can be revamped without ripping out all the units and starting all over again (which can be eye-wateringly expensive).
Exposed beams add to the charm of the space.
A mezzanine floor over the living room provides space for a separate master bedroom (the high ceilings have certainly help facilitate this!).
How lovely! I find this relaxed, bohemian style so inspiring, do you?
A quick translation / Swedish lesson from the floor plan:
I’ve found Swedish to be a very sensitive language. Speaking from experience, if you get the pronunciation ever so slightly wrong a Swede will likely not understand what you’re saying (it could also be that my pronounciation is horrible!). All-in-all, it makes it a little tricky to learn.
Do you speak a second language? Or perhaps a third, fourth or fifth like my linguistically skilled older sister? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
