Though great expanses and sweeping vistas are cool, what really counts is a functional, liveable space combined with great style. I am fully in awe of the Scandinavian minimalistic approach with smart use of space that makes one believe small is the new BIG. One such great abode is the 495 sq. ft (approx 49 sq.m) studio attic of Jimmy Schonning a stylist based out of Stockholm.
WOW I just love it all - the modular sofas that can be turned towards terrace or kitchen based on the season :-), the concrete platform with the entertainment, fireplace and cosy reading corner that doubles up as extra beds and the great storage below for wood, papers etc . Take note of the cushions made from an ikea mat - a genial pick.
Gotta love this steel top inbuilt kitchen and did u notice the shelf recycled from an old jetty wood.
A -------- Staircase (go ahead and fill in the blank with the word that occurs to you- bright concrete steps , dark backdrop and the right throw of art n light - what more can one ask
An enlarged photo , creative shelf with the lights and the storage below adds that dramatic touch to this cosy loft sleep.
I am curious to show you this refreshing bathtub from recycled plastic
And what other great place can we wind up this tour than at this creative bath window with character, color, privacy and smart use of space.
Jimmy Schonning is my neighbor (in Sweden) - so you know whom I will ask to do my interiors when I move to an apartment in my old age :-).
