An Inside Look at Apartment S in Stockholm

Apartment S, located in a residential area called Östermalm, Stockholm, Sweden, is a modern yet classy apartment full of contrasts created by a mix of vintage midcentury and modern furniture. The interior was completed by talented interior designer Joanna Lavén.

“Renovation included designing and putting in a new checkered floor in black and white marble for the hallway. Ceiling moldings were used in all rooms and the ceiling of the living room got a special design. Tearing down a wall between the kitchen and dining room was done to create a more spacious kitchen / dining area. The apartment also got new classical wall panels in the hallway and bedrooms and a centerpiece fireplace in the kitchen /dining area. The design and remodeling was created to get a bright and sophisticated feeling, enhancing the apartments classical details and contrasting with a mix of vintage midcentury and modern furniture. All floors were treated to get an deep and even color throughout the apartment,” says Joanna Lavén
