This is Susanna Vento’s stylish take on living in a 25m2 apartment. The project was done for Smartti, a container housing model that offers smart solutions for small space living. I think she made the place look quite spacious. By using the foldable table and a single bed that serves as a sofa too a lot of space has been saved.
Swoon recently released a preview of their new collection styled by Lotta Agaton (like the previous times) and it’s all grey on grey which gives these pictures by Kristofer Johnsson a very soft touch.
One of the things I’m really happy about in our new place is that it has a balcony. It’s a small one, but it’s just enough for the both of us and just like the rest of the building, it has original details.
I put a lot of thought into how to make the most from this space and ultimately decided to go for a minimal look that would contrast with the cast iron railings and lots of plants to create a green oasis in the city. I’m so happy with the Menu wire lounge chairs from Westwing Now. They are very comfortable and don’t take up so much space. When we move things around, we can still fit a few stools for when we have guests.
Our balcony gets full sun from midday until the evening, so it was important to find a good sun protection as well. The Cinas balcony umbrella fits so well here and it’s great that we could just hang it on the balcony rather then having to fit a heavy foot, which would have taken up so much more space. The wire plant pot from Menu gives the look this extra edge and since the lounge chairs are made for both in- and outdoors, I’m thinking about using them inside in winter as well. I think they would look great in our living room.
We bought a fig plant (love the smell), planted some smaller plants in the planters and bought a climber plant that we hope will grow to fill up the gaps in the railing a little. Rather then covering these pretty details up we try to get some natural covering.

I’m thinking about painting the wall of the bedroom in a dark color. Not sure which tint yet, but I’m leaning towards a dark grey or a deep petrol blue. I think these bedrooms look so cozy and full of character. Aside from the color I’m also not sure if I would paint the entire bedroom or just one or two walls. I will figure it out and share the results with you here of course, but until then I’m looking at these great examples.
I love the cocoon-like look of these bedrooms. There is something so cozy and comforting about these flowy linen fabrics above the bed. Especially when the ceiling is very high this might makes sense to give the bed its own space and to separate it from the rest of the bedroom
I like the way this home is setup and customized. The kitchen is shaped out of different modules in different materials (a black, white and wooden module), which makes it very interesting. I like the way the kitchen goes over into a seating bench with the round breakfast table. In the bedroom the same wood is used for a walk in closet which is also the wooden headboard for the bed.

Such a bright and open villa this is. The neutral color palette makes the rooms look even brighter and by adding subtile textures, the furniture that is carefully picked looks very special. I like the old Copenhagen street lights above the dining table and the contrasting wood pieces against the concrete flooring. The outdoor area looks perfect as well, I would love to spend an afternoon there.

I love the power of green plants in an interior and this is such a nice example of this botanical effect. This room is of course styled and I don’t think I would personally like to sleep in the midst of all those plants, but I certainly love the way all these plants are presented. Hanging along the ceiling, in a little greenhouse and on the stairs.
