You don’t need to live in an overly big apartment to feel cozy, warm and homey. Even in limited spaces, in small areas, you can still enjoy life and different activities, if you know what to do. This artistic apartment is proof that you don’t need a big space to create a harmonious and stylish design and décor in your home. This may be another apartment, with lots of lovely and artistic home accessories, placed everywhere, but hey, look at the black hardwood flooring which is just perfectly combined with the white walls.
This cozy apartment is designed in the so called artistic clutter model. It once belonged to Johanna Laskey, a talented interior designer, it’s located in Stockholm and the total area is only of 550 square feet. The artistic clutter model refers to the fact that you can find almost anything in it. It is like a melting pot for designers, you can find photographs, paintings, books and prints – as well as other stuff – scattered around in almost a messy arrangement. But the mess is the main aspect because it’s what makes this space look inhabited. After all, real people make real mess, so why should you be bothered by it?
The dominant color is white, perfect to deliver a roomy and spacious atmosphere. Other colors are mixed in with small accessories and accents. As you can see, the combination between the white walls, white sofa, black chair, pale white wooden floors, colorful cushions and dark rugs make the living room look simple, yet highly artistic. The concept of black and white is also incorporated to create a stylish and sophisticated effect. The kitchen, for instance, has white walls and a black glossy floor, making the small space look bigger and roomier than it really is. You can easily spoil yourself sitting in the cozy small chair while waiting for your meals.
