Small but Stylish | New Swedish Apartments by Refine Design Studio


Refine Design Studio have created a housing concept for a new property development located in Linköping, Sweden. Comprising of 21 apartments built by Wilzéns on behalf of the Draget Group, the project was led by Natalie Strömberg, interior designer and founder of Refine Design Studio. With a clear vision for the loft apartments, the studio applied a muted colour palette of grey-beige shades together with monochrome accents. Providing a strong Scandinavian base, industrial elements and the layering of wood, stone and steel, these small yet stylish apartments are beckoning you to move in!  

Carrying out some reworkings to the existing layout of selected apartments in the housing project, above all, Refine's goal was to bring some unique elements through both the materials and design elements. This can been seen in the kitchen, which features warm grey matt lacquered cabinets and contrasting Terrazzo benchtops in crisp white. I love how the terrazzo injects both a textural edge and playful vibe. 

With plenty of natural light, the apartments feature white pigmented oak flooring paired with warm grey walls, giving the spaces a bright and spacious feel. 

Many of the apartments feature a ceiling height of 4.5m and generous sleeping lofts. Wanting to further enhance these elements, Refine Design Studio designed an industrial style loft ladder. To create additional light, industrial windows between different rooms and floors have been installed  in some of the apartments. 

Refine sent me lots of photos, showcasing how the apartments vary from one to another. Each features a careful curation of lighting and furniture, while the neutral colour palette provides the perfect base for layering soft pops of colour through the use of textile accessories such as cushions and rugs. 

I love the earthy green hues in this apartment. The loft bedroom is layered with a cosy beige carpet with a silky sheen, bringing a softness to the steel stairs and railings.
