White, brass and marble. Rustic accents. That seems to be the recipe for an accomplished home right now. But rarely have I seen it so tastefully done as in this apartment. It's currently for sale through Per Jansson.
Let's begin with my favorite room..the kitchen. First, let's just acknowledge the fact that - yes, it helps a lot when you have an old apartment with molding in the ceiling, old beautifully worn wood floors and antique fireplaces in every other room. It does. And we can't all get that. But also, see how much light and air you win from not having the top cabinets on the wall? I so wish we could have gone with just an open shelf like this in our kitchen but I have no idea where I would put all that stuff that's in them now. But with a bigger kitchen... Yeah. I know. It's unfair.
I just love how the open shelves allows them to mix in some greens and art on that shelf to make the room more of a living space than a utilitarian kitchen. We spend so much time in the kitchen doing other things than cook so I think it makes total sense to give the kitchen some decorative qualities. And did you notice the lighting in those shelves too? Elegant! The old serving aisle is a fun detail to keep. That was used by the staff as a place to keep food and drink close by as they served in the dining room. I bet the actual kitchen used to be in the room next to where it is now and the new kitchen used to just be a large dining room.
Moving on to some of the living spaces and bedrooms.
So bright and light and yet so luxurious! I would love to have a balcony in my bedroom. Imagine waking up on a Sunday, opening up the door and let the cool and fresh morning air in? Get a cup of coffee and just sit for a few minutes before you begin you day. In this scenario, my kids would also have to be very heavy morning sleepers. Not the case in real life.
Ok. We're almost done. I just have to show you some bathroom pics too. Not only is there a fireplace in the bathroom, there's even a tiny little sauna! And I'm really liking the little shelf above the sinks..I bet that was made to be able to fit the trendy wall hung water spouts. That's a great idea to be able to utilize that space for the everyday things.

I'm going to leave you drooling over this image from the master bath. I hope you have a great day!
