To live in Swe­den, is to live in  well aired spaces, it seems.  It is all about the bal­ance between form & func­tion and dec­o­ra­tions are kept at an ele­gant min­i­mum. This 105 square meter apartment’s hub is the open plan liv­ing room with a fur­ni­ture set in woven wood fibers. It is located in  Salt­sjöbaden, right by the Baltic Sea—hence the ships, rope motifs and sailors fea­tured throughout.

Any­thing but your aver­age lit­tle sea­side pad

Sim­plic­ity rules supreme, from the float­ing bar in the kitchen with built-in appli­ances, to the din­ing table for six. Of course, cre­ativ­ity also abound, as seen in the immac­u­lately white wall cov­ered in minute mosaic tiles, or the regally sized chairs around the din­ing table.

The view opens up to the adjoin­ing street, with its quiet homes and rustling tree branches. Mean­while, some­where not too far off in the dis­tance the Baltic sea lapse at the shore and the white boats gen­tly bounce up and down its soft, nur­tur­ing waves.
