A Charming Stockholm Apartment with an Ochre Kitchen

A Charming Stockholm Apartment with an Ochre Kitchen


Green is probably the most popular kitchen colour in Scandinavia right now - and there's no denying how calming and beautiful it is. But it's also nice to discover a kitchen which goes against the tide - like this one with ochre cabinets. In fact, the entire apartment in SOFO (South of Folkungagatan), in the hipster district of Södermalm, Stockholm has been decorated in a beautiful, unique palette. Think earthy blue, dusty pink (similar to Farrow & Ball's popular 'setting plaster') and a dampened ochre in the children's bedroom (could be Jotun Lady 'Cashmere' or 'Hummus')- a perfect lesson in how to create a 'röd tråd' (red thread) throughout your home using colour. 

Really beautiful - and such wonderful use of colour. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

Would you consider having this yellow, blue and pink combination in your home? or perhaps a kitchen with ochre cabinets?

Last week in Sweden was all about the 'Studenten' i.e., when students graduate from 'gymnasium' (sixth form college / high school). The week was peppered with parties in which sailor-clad graduates celebrated with family and friends until the early hours. Needless to say, everyone's still in recovery mode this Monday! But still it was a wonderful week!

Do you have special traditions in your country for those graduating from high school?

I promise you that I have a “what the heck are we doing with our home renovation” update coming your way in the very near future (for real for real). But know that things are in motion, the wheels are spinning, and though we are still very much in limbo in a lot of ways, I find myself saving allll of the beautiful inspiration for when we do finally pull the trigger. And though I have a ton of ideas spinning around in my head, when I stumbled upon this project designed by Weeth Home, I couldn’t help but pin every image. I love that it has that old world European-classic-totally-timeless vibe, but paired with just a hint of modern and the slightest edge (my personal aesthetic). Oh, and the rest of the home of course follows suit. It’s pretty in all the right places and it can all be found below…

Kitchen Closeup | Stanmore Residence by Michiru Higginbotham


Engineered oak floorboards in the modern extension match those in the original terrace, which have been restored, sanded and whitewashed. Storage was a priority in the design brief to cater to the young family. Architecture studio ARC Architects introduced a walk-in pantry and built it ‘into’ the threshold, while a wall of full-height cabinetry runs along the entire wall. “The continuous joinery along the kitchen and living wall blurs the line where the kitchen stops and the living space begins, creating the illusion of a larger space,” Michiru explains. 

Streamlined black handles and a teak-coloured shadow line below the concrete-look stone benchtops add a simple design edge to the all-white kitchen. This stone also acts as the splashback, making for easy, no-fuss cleaning. “Having a splashback in a slab format makes cleaning a lot quicker; the client didn’t want to clean grout between tiles,” Michiru adds.

A Danish Country Home with a Striking Kitchen And Relaxing Garden!

A Danish Country Home with a Striking Kitchen And Relaxing Garden!


Hello friends. Today I'm taking you to North Zealand, Denmark and the charming home of Diana Aud.                         An interior stylist, designer, and a portrait and product photographer, Diana has many strings to her bow, and her creativity shines through in her magnificent kitchen with its mix of patterns, shapes, materials and contrasting tones. True to her Scandinavian heritage, Diana's country home also has a wonderful sense of calm owed in part to the decluttered feel of the space, but also thanks to the nature-themed palette which helps draw the surroundings inside. But there are also plenty of places to relax in the shade outdoors too. Ready to take a look at some of the rooms? Another Studio paid a visit and took these pictures. 

Diana's lovely home has me dreaming of long summer days, how about you? My eyes on that hammock! 

I particularly love the large cabinet in the kitchen which is home to Diana's ceramic collection. The emerald green is so striking. 
You can see more of Diana Aud's lovely danish home over at @Diana.aud. And explore other Danish homes in this archive (one of my favourites!). 

Kram!

Kitchen Covet | Clever Compact Kitchens


Take a peek inside seven compact kitchens defined by their clever use of space, storage and materials.

In this kitchen covet, we’re showcasing projects from around the globe that optimise space and get clever – in layout, how things are stored, or the way materials are applied.

Upper East Side Pied-a-Terre by Robert Young Architects

It should come as no surprise that the opening kitchen is located in one of the most compact cities in the world. Case in point: this flat on the Upper East Side, designed by Robert Young Architects. In a clever colour contrast, this all-black kitchen is merely a hole in a wall, equipped with all of the essentials: an oven, stovetop, sink and enough storage to satisfy any New Yorker.

Brick 99 by AM Designs

Belgians are renowned for their minimal, clean-cut designs, particularly in the kitchen. Antwerp-based studio AM Designs have crafted a compact kitchen using raw materials, pure forms and discreet storage solutions. Aside from the visible stovetop, all appliances have been cleverly integrated into a neat joinery system on the left side.

Collingwood Apartment by Rob Kennon Architects

In Collingwood, Melbourne, Rob Kennon Architects have skillfully converted a three-storey warehouse into a modern apartment built for entertaining. The apartment’s kitchen has been cleverly tucked under the stairwell, closed in by a curved brass wall. A window nook has then been added to extend the space out towards the street – combining two clever manipulations of space. 

MJ Residence by Seear-Budd Ross

New Zealand practice Seear-Budd Ross have addressed this Wellington kitchen like a piece in a puzzle. The travertine benchtop and walnut joinery intuitively wrap around the bordering garden, forming a natural connection to the outdoors. Everything about the compact yet open space feels instinctual, from the 90-degree angles of the benchtop to the material palette to the drawers and cupboards.

Basement Apartment by Brad Swartz Architects

Brad Swartz Architects have adopted a space-saving mindset in this bright one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in Potts Point, Sydney. But don’t be deceived; the kitchen is more than what meets the eye. While the kitchen ‘furniture’ accommodates a sink and stovetop, a hidden butler’s pantry fits an oven, refrigerator and additional storage space.

Storybook House by Folk Architects

Back in Melbourne, Folk Architects designed a dynamic alteration and addition onto a single-fronted Victorian terrace. The reinstated interiors present a new take on clever compact kitchens – one that marries the ritual of cooking with the ritual of eating, realised by a custom dining table adjoined to a stone kitchen island.

Copacabana Beach House by Brad Swartz Architects

You would expect a large, open kitchen in a beach house just north of Sydney that sleeps up to 16 guests. Brad Swartz Architects, however, have taken the unconventional route and opted for a modest kitchen designed to be a discreet ‘backdrop’ to the living area. This way, the living area is uninterrupted, increasing the sense of space.

Kitchen Covet | Parquetry Timber Flooring | Style


European oak has long held its place as a timeless, natural and durable choice for flooring, especially when it comes to the kitchen – one of the hardest-working spaces in the home.

Moving away from traditional boards, parquetry is an age-old type of timber flooring first recorded in the Palace of Versailles, France. Parquetry is most commonly seen in herringbone or chevron patterning, synonymous with European refinement. 

Engineered oak parquetry assures stability and longevity, particularly in varying climates. Unlike other engineered timbers, Tongue n Groove offers three layers of solid European oak flooring in chevron and herringbone format. In this feature, we enter six kitchens underpinned by Tongue n Groove engineered oak parquetry to see how it meets contrasting aesthetics and design demands.

Kitchen Covet | Curves in the Kitchen | Style | Kitchens


Where curves go, a sense of calm usually follows. This is certainly the case in the kitchen, where designers explore curves through different materials or kitchen elements such as the central island or cabinetry. We step inside seven kitchens that play with fluid shapes and soft edges to achieve a unique design resolution.

Exploring Woodgrain in the Kitchen with CJH Studio


Just like the bathroom and European laundry, Cassie and stylist Bek Sheppard worked to include Australian-only fixtures, lighting and accessories. A Phoenix Tapware Vivid Slimline mixer, Volker Haug wall light, and MUD ceramics are part of their considered curation. “Although a difficult self-set task, it was really exciting to see so many beautiful Australian pieces aid the designs and be supported within this campaign,” Cassie says.

CJH Studio’s kitchen collaboration with Laminex sees an experimental dedication to the application of woodgrain that’s intuitive to how we use this space. The design studio have put a spotlight on the material’s capabilities through their highly-considered approach, in a way that has us rethinking woodgrain’s place in the kitchen palette.

Kitchen Closeup | Aggregate House by Edwina Glenn


To understand the Aggregate House by Edwina Glenn, you need to start from the ground up. More specifically, the striking Palladiana floor where marble and terrazzo have been laid through an ancient Roman technique. And while an incredibly time-consuming process in collaboration with the client and builder, the client’s two young children were invited to lay down small aggregate pieces before the pour – inscribing their personal history into the home. 

The floor captures Edwina Glenn’s approach to the Aggregate House; bespoke, intuitive and playful. While the home’s formal zones had seen intervention by interior designer David Hicks some time ago, Edwina Glenn was asked to now bring the extension into a new era. Calling on the late-70s when the home was originally built, Edwina’s response embraces the established tropical garden, creating a naturally-lit family zone with “state of the art appliances” and “varied dining experiences”. 

We speak with Edwina Glenn on how her interiors capture the renewed spirit of the home and how she catered to the kitchen’s different requirements – including just the right tools for entertaining.
