A Summery Flat in Stockholm, with Affordable Small-Space Ideas to Steal

August 15, 2016

Located in the newly happening SoFo district of Stockholm, a tiny apartment in a 1932 Art Deco building gets an overhaul from the team at Historiska Hem, a Stockholm-based design agency that specializes in updating flats for the modern design buyer. Join us for a tour.

Above: In the entryway the designers created a mini landing pad by defining a sliver of wall with dark charcoal paint and installing a trio of Dots Wall Hooks by Muuto for hanging coats and bags and a trio of shelves for storing shoes.
