The color yellow & the minimalist white for furnishing a Stockholm apartment

Color yellow as an accent in a renovated apartment

This bright and sunny yellow apartment is located in Stockholm, Sweden and has been specially designed for a young couple. Since the apartment from the 1920s has a relatively small living space of 80 square meters, practical built-in wardrobes were used to provide the living rooms with sufficient storage space and to create not only the living room and kitchen, but also the bedroom as a place of retreat. And it is precisely these built-in cupboards, along with some other elements, that are eye-catching in the apartment, as they attract attention with their strong yellow tone. Take a look at the gallery below and see how the color yellow was used.

Color yellow and white for the kitchen and living room

The built-in wardrobe in the living area is the largest and has several functions. Because the kitchen and a bench are also integrated into it. A white and minimalist surface is combined with the trend color yellow, which creates a wonderful contrast. Yellow as the color of hope creates a sunny and warm atmosphere in this apartment, but at the same time looks very modern due to the simple lines, edges and surfaces of the furniture. In principle, the area with the work surface in the kitchen and the seating area are highlighted with the color yellow in the built-in wardrobe, thereby visually separating them from each other.

Yellow is the color of the furniture and accessories

In order to match the rest of the furnishings to the colored built-in wardrobe, the yellow color was also used for other elements. This includes, among other things, the modern kitchen island, as well as some lamps and decorative pillows. A short corridor leads to the entrance area, which in turn leads to the attractive bathroom and bedroom. Since strong colors are not recommended in the bedroom, it was designed in white. Instead, the color yellow was used as an accent in the bedroom. The second built-in wardrobe is also located here.

The third built-in wardrobe can be found in the bathroom. Another color also comes into play in the bathroom and that is gray. This can be found in the form of tiles in the wet room and for the floor, as well as in the sink, which was designed in a modern concrete look. Otherwise the color yellow is the main color here. As there are no windows in the bathroom, the wall color yellow was used to create a sunny atmosphere.
