small Scandinavian apartment decor

small Scandinavian apartment decorFor today’s home tour I’ve got this stunning small Scandinavian apartment which benefits from many original features like the ceiling mouldings, the original flooring, the super high ceilings and huge windows.

Like many Scandi homes, this isn’t a big home with just under 500 sq ft (approx 45 sqm) of space.  But the space feels larger because it has been decorated so cleverly.  The wall to wall mirror wardrobe doors in the living room not only provide much needed storage but also maximise the light coming through the large windows and make the space appear bigger than it is.  The colours throughout are light with lots of white mixed in with soft neutrals paints like grey and beige.

Here’s a short video tour of this Scandi home:

What really makes this small Scandinavian apartment special is the living area with all the original features and those big windows.  It’s been stylishly decorated making it such a beautiful and inviting space.  Even though it’s a small home it still feels spacious which is something the Scandi’s always manage to pull off.
