Here Comes the Sun: A Scandinavian Oasis in Bucharest
In Bucharest, Romania — a city known for its rich history and vibrant urban life — the C. family’s apartment emerges as a beacon of Scandinavian simplicity. With Vim Studio‘s touch, Here Comes the Sun aptly illuminates a design journey from raw space to a cozy, sunlit haven.
A harmonious blend of natural oak, light furnishings, and inspired color choices, the apartment encapsulates a refreshing Scandinavian essence right in Romania’s capital.
About Here Comes the Sun
Nestled in the heart of Bucharest, the C. family embarked on a journey. Eager to turn a raw apartment into a welcoming “home,” they combined thoughtful design with Scandinavian influences.
Laying the Foundations
Starting with an apartment in its raw form, the C. family had the advantage of flexibility. To infuse a touch of Scandinavian elegance, they first opted for a natural oak parquet. This choice not only set the base but also harmonized with the light-colored furniture.
Subsequently, when it came to the walls, they leaned towards soothing green shades: Aegean Teal for the bathroom and sanitary areas, and Dark Teal for the bedroom. Moreover, these colors echo the serenity found in nature.
In the living room, a defining moment emerged when they selected wallpaper for the sofa backdrop. Mirroring this pattern, a large wall mirror was strategically placed, enhancing depth and reflection.
Harmony in Design
Then, in the kitchen, an eye-catching element was introduced. A vibrant yellow strip, which seamlessly extends to the TV area, ties the spaces together and adds a burst of energy.
Similarly, in the bathroom and sanitary spaces, the contrast between the pristine white and Aegean Teal stands out. Additionally, expansive mirrors magnify space and light, crafting a sense of openness.
Lastly, the master bedroom, bathed in Dark Teal, becomes a haven. This backdrop, while vibrant, serves as a neutral palette, highlighting the room’s curated decor and ambient lighting.
