If you’ve convinced yourself that you couldn’t possibly downsize into a smaller house or apartment, maybe you just haven’t met the right space yet. Because when it comes to making a micro apartment or tiny house work for you, every little detail matters. That includes a smart layout, making use of vertical space, being selective about the items you want to highlight and focusing attention on the architecture, not your stuff.
In a total of 90 square meters, this Swedish apartment fits an entire stylish home into an impossibly tiny space. The narrow staircase just inside the entrance leads to a small but dramatic loft space, which is just the introduction to a modern and bohemian living area.
A comfortable living area has been created using muted colors with little splashes of bright hues and whimsical details. A working fireplace brightens the main living area, acting as the main focal point beside the sculptural stairs.
Strategically placed skylights bring in natural light, while suspended bare-bulb fixtures add to a feeling of modern living.
Even the kitchen and bathroom have a thoroughly modern edge, but they are not without their rustic charm: textured walls and scattered live plants smooth out the modern look.
The living space, overall, feels so much brighter and larger than you might expect from such a small space, and the sculptural walls give the apartment a much more organic feel than you might expect to find in the city.
Easily the most striking feature of the apartment is the impressive terrace which opens up off of the kitchen area. Filled with a comfortable sitting area and tons of plants, the terrace seems like one of the coziest places to spend a relaxing evening. Overall, it’s a beautiful example of how a small space can actually be quite comfortable and stylish.
