Located in the newly happening SoFo district of Stockholm, a tiny apartment in a 1932 Art Deco building gets an overhaul from the team at Historiska Hem, a Stockholm-based design agency that specializes in updating flats for the modern design buyer. Join us for a tour:
Above: In the entryway, the designers created a mini landing pad by defining a sliver of wall with dark charcoal paint and installing a trio of Dots Wall Hooks by Muuto for hanging coats and bags and a trio of shelves for storing shoes.
Above: In the living room, the designers combined a suite of Muuto furniture with a rattan chair (for sourcing ideas, see Trend Alert: Rattan Furniture Made Modern).
Above: A cork Sinnerlig Bench, designed by Ilse Crawford ($119 from Ikea), serves as a plant stand.
Above: The living room is outfitted with a Rest Three-Seater Sofa and an Around Coffee Table, both from Muuto. For a similar pink velvet pillow, consider the offerings from Remodelista favorite Kirsten Hecktermann.
Above: For storage, the designers added simple wall shelving and created a low-slung credenza along one wall.
Above: A view into the light-flooded dining area.
Above: A built-in plywood banquette provides modular seating; a section of the floor is painted gray to define the dining area.
Above: A tiled backsplash in the kitchen.
Above: The designers added shallow wall-mounted credenza using Ivar components from Ikea.
Above: The designers created a low-cost plywood headboard; for more ideas, see DIY: The Three-Step Painted Headboard.
