Interior of a one-room apartment

Outrageous interior of a small bohemian apartment

If our visitors want to seereally unusual interior, they should be interested in this apartment on Heleneborgsgatan street in Stockholm. For three decades, it was used exclusively as a storage facility for furniture until it was put up for sale in 2012. In the 80s of the last century, its former owner decided to make repairs, but soon fell ill, and his idea was not implemented until his death. The apartment was a rather sad sight: stripped wallpaper, no electricity, rats in the bathroom. Given the difficult housing situation in a city like Stockholm, it was simply impossible for designer Karin Matz to walk past this apartment. She tried to preserve all layers of the history of this apartment and at the same time fill it with new events. Therefore, on an area of ​​only 36 squares, she designed everything as her previous owner wanted: a large amount of free space, a full set of necessary household appliances. At the same time, lightness should have been felt in the interior. Thus, the apartment was divided into two parts. In the first, a redesign was made based on Ikea furniture: all walls and surfaces are snow-white, reflecting the sunlight coming through the window, new technology. A bedroom and storage systems for things and clothes are also located here. In the second part, there is no such compactness, all objects are placed freely, as it was before. The walls have been cleared of wallpaper and paint, the holes have been repaired, and the wires and sockets are on top of the walls. The connecting link between these two parts was the bathroom.
