The beige interior design trend is still going strong. It’s easy to see why, it mixes luxury with minimalist interior design. If you’re looking for ideas on how to create a modern beige living room, kitchen, or any room then this Nordic minimalist apartment in Stockholm is for you.
This Stockholm studio apartment is head to toe beige tones, a total dream. There are exquisite interior design details everywhere you look. It has carefully chosen ceramics, sculptures, and treasures. It’s a brilliant example of how important planning your space is, particularly when it’s at a premium. The addition of an alcove sleeping area is a great example of space being used functionally and creating a beautiful design feature. Every inch is used to its full potential without feeling cluttered.
Modern Beige Living Room
Let’s start in the living room which you may have noticed is shared with a cosy sleeping alcove, screened off with simple white linen curtains. I like the way the large flatweave cotton rug introduces a sophisticated seating area with the linen covered sofa and a sculptural vintage coffee table.
Striking monochromatic framed art makes a real focal point here and warm herringbone floors break up the all-white palette with similar tones picked out in decorative pieces on the shelving system. See how they’ve used a rattan bench underneath as a storage / additional seating for guests?
Alcove Sleep Nook Area
But shall we get back to that sleeping nook? It’s certainly different from a separate room but no less functional with hanging hooks for a few clothes and a simple wall to wall picture ledge which becomes a minimal headboard of sorts. I bet the morning light is beautiful streaming in through those windows in the morning.

Beautiful Beige Contemporary Kitchen
If you’re looking for stunning beige kitchen ideas, then look no further. This minimalist, beautifully functional kitchen has used beige and neutral tones and textures to create a calm interior.
The kitchen walls, units and shelves have been painted in the same beige colour which is a clever technique for a seamless tonal look. The units are broken up with chrome door handles and a pale woodwork surface echoes the freshly sanded floorboards.
It feels contemporary yet you can see the original kitchen pantry in the corner which has been given the same treatment with more traditional handles. I love how the light floods this room, especially the sleek grey marble dining table. I wonder if this was an antique market find?
