Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

The most amazing apartment I have ever seen

When I saw this apartment I was stunned for several minutes. My eyes watered, my cheeks blushed and I started to sweat. For real. I have never seen a more beautiful apartment in my life. It's for sale right here, and if you buy it, I am afraid I will have to kill you.
Now I am trying to imagine what the current owner's next home will look like. I mean, what is the next step when you move from something like this?

    Sia: Yeah, sure, you can come visit any time and stay in the tower room, he is keeping it as a guest room, since there are three more bedrooms on the lower floor... No, not really. He hasn't found anything yet, and when he does, it will be smaller than the kitchen in this apartment.
    Malin: Ok, men var beredd på att jag kommer och knackar på... ;-)

    What is the next step?
    Moving from a spectacular home is not the end of one?s life.
    Living there does however dramatically raise your housing standards.
    It?s all a matter of priorities, if your career, or other factor, is more important, than residence, you?ll move, hoping that the new place you find will be similarly wonderful.
    If you don?t, you?ll move to an interim home until you find the next residence that measures up to or exceeds the original place.

  • Emma ::emmas designblogg:: says:

    John, is your answer serious?! Don't you think I know all that? I was just trying to imagine how wonderful their next home must be to make them want to give up this spectacular place, but I guess you had to take it literally and make a rant about it...

    Dear Emma,
    Perhaps there is a language or cultural misunderstanding, unfortunately your intent was not successfully communicated.
    Nevertheless, my statements were not offered condescendingly.
    Having been privileged to live in four spectacular residences I am well aware of the difficulties of leaving a place you love and finding another you love just as much.
    Have a nice day,

    Very pretty.
    I live on twenty acres in the woods...my house is not very pretty...but I don't spend much time inside.
    I love the beams in the kitchen and dining area of this apartment.
    Emma, Keep sharing photos of things you find beautiful!

  • Geoff says:

    I agree with Kayla: Too much white. The timbered rafters, the rooftop outdoor shower, the bookshelves, all so attractive. But deathly, sterile, white as if there were no color to be had .... Ugh.

    Folks (some of you), your missing the point. These people probably love the outdoors and spend the majority of their time outside. When indoors they obviously love food and the well lit kitchen plus the warmth of the wood and all those books!!
    That said, the white living room is a space that is probably used in the evenings when artificial light can create unique settings that are ever changing (much like the great outdoors).

    Love to all!

    Beautiful, yes. But as in so many examples of modern design, this would be an absolute bitch to keep clean. All that white ... I prefer a house/apartment that is actually meant to be lived in.

  • Emma ::emmas designblogg:: says:

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments! And for the people who don't like it, well, I guess we just have different tastes. But please keep in mind that this apartment is home staged for the sale, so a lot of the owners personal stuff has been removed.

    ELBSeattle, I actually prefer it when I can see the dirt in my home, instead of just pretending it is not there because I can't see it... :)

    And Dan, I'm sure you could find a spot on the roof terrace that could accomodate a small vegetable garden. Perhaps next to the shower, with the outlet water going directly to the plants?

    As much as my internet travels bring me joy in seeing such beauty, these same travels consistently reveal the ugly and mean nature of a percentage of humanity that is stunning- a different kind of stunning, obviously. As a person who has suffered greatly in this lifetime, I hope to go to my grave without ever grasping why people insist on such cruel behaviours. Emma, thank you for sharing such things time and again- I respect your thick skin, and I suppose I will have to forsake reading the kind comments for the nasty ones are taking such a toll as I age.

    the space with the shag, glass coffee table and telescope is SICK...i'm totally doing that for my loft upstairs...the space on the roof would be awesome if they laid down some <a href="http://decktiledirect.com">deck tiles</a>.

    A friend of mine bought his with this company and it totally changed the whole look of his space.

  • Lindsay says:

    The white looks so fresh and welcoming to me, but it's one of those issues people are really split on. I live in Vancouver so I understand the need for maxiumum UV light reflection - very similar to Scandinavia in the winter. It feels better than dark colours. For me, the contrast between the purity of the white and the impurity of the wood is absolutely key, and there's nothing more beautiful than that contrast. I'd live here in a second.

    In this images I found one common thing and that is this apartment is made on the basis of some traditional and some modern design. In short I have seen the combination of traditional and modern things which helps to give more modern look. I like to collect this kind of images which is unique and inspirational. May be possible that from this images I get some new imagination which helps to improve my work.
