The idea for this attractive apartment came from Render Taxi. It was later implemented by Anna & Eugeni Bach. This living room is without a doubt a real highlight, which was achieved thanks to various means. On the one hand, there is the impressive wave-look ceiling and, on the other hand, the authentic floor tiles that were discovered and reused during the renovation. The use of white surfaces combined with a natural, light wood tone is typically Scandinavian.

You can design the apartment for the Nordic style with less wood. Here you can see the unique effect that is created when only shades of gray and white are used. There are also accents made of black metal in the form of a side table and coffee table. The latter displays a Bauhaus school chessboard.





Eames chairs are more than welcome in Scandinavian furnishings. Here these were combined with two wooden chairs, so that an interesting patchwork design is created. In keeping with this, such a design was also chosen for the back wall of the kitchen. Color accents were also used to design the apartment, including the E27 pendant lights by Mattias Ståhlbom.

The many plants also ensure a lively and natural atmosphere.
