Live in a small penthouse It does not have to be synonymous with being in a narrow and claustrophobic space. On the contrary: with an adequate use of light and space you can achieve results as good as those of this house.
It is the top apartment of a building located in the Swedish capital, Stockholm. A loft attic and full of clarity, thanks to its successful internal distribution, very strategic. They have taken advantage of the corners next to the windows to place right there some of the most important points of the house, such as the dining table or living room, for example. The nudity of windows, ceilings and walls enhances the entrance of light to the maximum, and in places where the sun does not strike, artificial lighting has been placed. The height of the ceilings - in the part where there is no inclination - and the white as the base color do the rest so that the place is full of light.
The chosen furniture is made of light wood, which together with the white creates a diaphanous and pleasant surface. The parquet floor is also very successful, in line with this search for clarity and generous surfaces. The areas are perfectly delimited visually, and in this sense highlights how the kitchen stands as a small central island, but in which nothing is missing.
We are in a very functional house, with little decoration but very subtle and personal details, with touches of fuchsia, red and plum color that give a lot of vividness to the environment. We also find some small decorative stairs that suppose a bit the point of rupture between spaces and a nice collage of photographs built on the wall.
The rooms look comfortable and tidy, equipped with the precise, taking advantage of the space effectively.
The bathroom, on the other hand, is modern and the wall of small blue mosaics gives it an excellent appearance. In short, a good use of space and the use of light influences how we perceive homes, converting into cozy and warm homes of smaller dimensions.
