Yellow is one of the most cheerful and fun colors yet it’s rarely a main color tone in interior design. And of course you don’t expect to see it in Stockholm, Sweden, where Scandinavian design is the most popular and more often seen. But this apartment features yellow as the leading colors, and the whole design is built around it.

This home was remodeled by studio Lookofsky Architecture, and the yellow tone which was integrated throughout the apartment is bold and cheerful with a warm and at the same time delicate appearance. It’s used in combination with white surfaces, light grays and warm wooden flooring creating a stylish combo and a sunny feeling in the apartment – Sweden can’t boast of much sunlight, so it’s a good idea.

Apart from the color palette, the new interior design of this place also stands out through the face that it has a very airy and open vibe without sacrificing privacy or functionality. In fact, the designers employed a very clever strategy: they gave the apartment a series of three built-in walls, each serving a distinct set of functions. One of the walls is seven meters long and part of the kitchen layout. It incorporates several components, each serving a separate function.

Another built-in wall can be found in the bathroom where it satisfies the owners’ storage needs and the last one is part of the bedroom and incorporates a wardrobe module. Together, these 3 structures give the apartment a very welcoming and wholesome feel and in combination with the yellow accents create a playful vibe. They also contribute to the harmonious look and feel of the apartment as a whole which greatly improves social interaction and everyday life.
