Today, I’m taking you to Sweden to see a beautiful flat with a soothing, neutral palette of whites and wood.
Starting with the kitchen, the neutral palette is achieved through the use of plywood. Plywood kitchens are a favourite of mine after white kitchens and the kitchen in this apartment is one that you will want to bookmark for future references.
Plants and flowers are two things that will add a feel-good, homely vibe to the kitchen. I really love the idea of using a large plant like a Monstera Deliciosa or a tall cactus as a design visual statement.
We often see plants in nice inspiring workspaces or in the lounge but rarely in the kitchen except for the usual pots of fresh basil, mint and chives which never last very long if you buy them from the supermarket.
Storage is key to achieve a minimalist look like these 4 beautiful kitchens but wall-mounted storage adds to the feeling that everything flows nicely around the room.
Avoid plastic, first, it’s not good for the planet and it’s ugly! Instead get utility accessories that are so nice that they can be left on display like these Scandinavian wooden brooms by Iris Hantverk or this dustpan and brush from Menu that I love. What do you think of this kitchen? It’s very peaceful and charming, isn’t it!?
