Deceiving Design: Compact apartment in Sweden is made to look larger with clever drapery

Deceiving Design: Compact apartment in Sweden is made to look larger with clever drapery

This gorgeous, cosy apartment was recently renovated and redesigned by architect and artist Deniala Nystrom. It is only about 70 meters squared and is located in an old building built in 1931 in central Stockholm, Sweden. Although Swedish style is very prominent and bold, this apartment actually has a very different style altogether. It’s very masculine appearance with dark furniture and white walls makes it look contemporary and in keeping with New York styling. Despite its deceiving appearance, the apartment is in fact a studio apartment with the kitchen, dining room, living room and bedroom all in the same space. Each different part of the living space has been sectioned off with translucent drapery in order to give it some privacy without making it look too small. Photos by PerJansson.
