Look at this beautiful turn-of-the-century home in Sweden. The layout might be a little awkward, with all the rooms in a rather weird shape, but what it lacks in logical floor planning, it makes up for in character and style. Like many of those turn-of-the-century homes, the moldings on the ceiling, doors, and windows are just exquisite. The cool grey wall color in the living room enhances the white moldings and old fireplace and gives them a fresh look and feel. The rest of the living room has been kept in very neutral colors as well making it a bright space, freshened up even more by some green plants.

Even though the kitchen has a weird layout, the owners of this home made it work with the kitchen cabinets on one side. Notice the old doorway has been transformed into an open shelving unit as well, which is a nice touch. The worktop of the kitchen is cut to size to fill up the area in the doorway, so it looks like it’s part of the kitchen.

The bedroom has been painted in a warmer grey and has a beautiful built-in wardrobe which can hold so much stuff. I love the vintage furniture on the bedsides and the vintage drawer chest which has been painted grey, these elements add so much character to the bedroom.
