Turn of the century meets modern

I just stumbled over this gorgeous apartment for sale through Bolaget. As you can see, I had a very hard time picking out just a few of the photos, but I hope you enjoy the massive picture bomb!
I was thinking just yesterday that I want to get rid of some of the brown details in my home and make it more graphic black and white.


But seeing these photos, with lots of brown hues on the details like cushions and ceramic pots, leather furniture and wooden floors, makes me rethink my decision. It sure adds a lot of warmth to the interiors, and that is always nice in the colder months. Perhaps I just need more plants and shiny white surfaces to freshen it up a bit?

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].

  • Marius

    Yeah, it is always like this that you want to get rid of some stuff, but once you see it somewhere in the pictures – you realise that you have it and you certainly want to keep it! 🙂
    Have good weekend!

  • Vilken pärla, älskar alla fina gamla detaljer och känslan av rymd som finns i bilderna.

  • Ladaea

    Very inviting. I sort of fall in love with brown interiors every autumn.

  • So chic! Love it!

  • I love the brown in these types of rooms! I think it’s like the little bit of yummy sugar in the tea. If you want to minimize brown in your home, what about using rustic woods (woods that are so worn they are almost bluish-gray) as a compromise? That would get you closer to graphite. 🙂

  • I totally agree with the touches of brown and tan. It gives a much warmer feeling. Such a beautiful flat- I particularly love the kitchen chairs and lights above the table! 🙂

  • Nice
    More tan Nice!
