A lot of things come to mind when you think about the countries of Scandinavia. Whether it’s a flaky cheese Danish, a a cozy Norwegian sweater, the view of the Aurora Borealis from Helsinki or, you know, Ikea – the region is as diverse as it is beautiful and somewhat mysterious.
Scandinavian design was born out of the generally quiet lifestyles of these countries. Though it was first identified as a movement in the 1950s, obviously design has been taking place in the region for much longer than that.
Today, when we talk about Scandinavian design, we mean simplicity and function and this apartment in Prague, from visualizer Denis Krasikov, is no different. Style serves a purpose and simplicity does not take the place of beauty, but instead augments it.
The living room space with its vaulted ceilings may feel a bit sparse to those who would look for an overstuffed sectional or formal dining room. In an apartment suited for a young couple, a simple grey loveseat does the trick. It is also the introduction the color palette that threads its way through the rest of the apartment: stark white walls, dark wood floors, and the occasional splash of yellow or teal. It’s very modern and trendy without feeling overdone.
A central brick pillar is painted white, allowing it to act as a room divider but still almost disappear. Placing the television against this pillar on one side while the dining table butts up against it on the other is the perfect way to ensure that diners can focus on one another rather than the blaring screen.
The lofted bed area is ultra cozy and certainly simple. The bed itself is actually made from wooden pallets while a chevron stripe duvet brings some design elements from downstairs up into the bedroom for a unifying feel. The loft is also placed far enough below the pitched ceiling that it doesn’t feel cramped, which is often an issues for spaces like this.
Finally the bathroom with its chic white tile walls and checked floor has a sparkling simplicity and retro appeal to die for.
