If you’re one of the people who simply adores white interiors–like I do–then the Nordhemsgatan Apartment, a renovated residence in a historic building from 1904 will charm you. Completed by Alvhem Brokerage & Interiors, details were taken into consideration to preserve the classic architecture while infusing a clean-lined Scandinavian vibe within this modern dream apartment home.
The living room is calm in a sea of white-on-white: painted wood floors, walls, detailed mouldings and ceiling, including the plush sofa and corner wood-burning fireplace. Earthy tones, warm woods and ebony accent this lack of color exquisitely, as do dimensional elements such as the cubed shelves, woven rug, leather chair and ottoman. Ceilings are voluminous contributing even more spaciousness to this main living area. Traditional windows are large and allow direct sunlight to bathe the interiors. Artworks of abstract wire sculptures and black-and-white prints add to the modernism of this space.
Through a set of beautiful sliding wood paneled doors, a home office resides and is accessible through two large doorways off of the living room. Floral wallpaper in grey and soft pink adds a soft touch when set against the rustic wood desk and doors clad with glossy, reflective paint. The hallway also features a distinctive floral wallpaper, this time in cool green, tan and white, as well as a floor of inlaid exotic tiles. This is so striking, the usage of classic wallpaper motifs against a gleaming white, modern palette–a remarkable, even daring design mix!
Light is everywhere in this modern dream apartment, seemingly pouring in from every exposure and bounces off of gleaming surfaces with elegance. The kitchen is one such place, designed with a unique angular counter area with basin and cooktop. Sleek wood cabinetry and white wraps this room, including the white dining table adorned with country-style black wood chairs. Bedrooms are simple with streamlined white wardrobes and bedding, adhering to the stark, yet comfortable ambiance of this urban retreat.
The outdoor terrace is incredible–a soft patch of grass leads to the dining patio where a white table and chair set is found to enjoy meals, entertain, all while overlooking the city from a coveted top-floor view.
The Nordhemsgatan White Apartment is a contemporary dream apartment, meticulously marrying historic beauty with Scandinavian modernism.
