Plascon House Tour: Nordic Attic Living
Gone are the days in which an attic was simply used as additional storage in a home. Today the trend is to fully renovate this space to create additional living space – the more stylish the better. This is why we are loving this dreamy Scandinavian attic apartment, beautifully remodelled for luxury living.
The real trick about an attic conversion is the way in which the ceilings slope down on a typically open plan area. In order the maximise an attic as a livable space, designers need to cleverly plan the space and create interesting dividers that separate the different zones needed in a conventional home.
In this gorgeous attic apartment, the bedroom has been cordoned off from the rest of the home thanks to stylish glass framed doors. Skylights have also been installed to optimize the light and flow from one area to the next. The result is a modern, bright and luxe apartment.
Keeping things simple, a colour backdrop of white creates a uniform and crisp designer feel in this home. In the living room, we can see how furniture is cleverly positioned as not become obstructed by the sloping ceilings. A beautiful Scandi arrangement including a luxe white sofa and modern wood table adds life to this interesting room. The focus shifts from the irregular angle of the walls to the beautiful collection of Nordic pieces here.
A customised kitchen is elegant and appealing in this space. In keeping with the minimalist and neutral colour scheme, the kitchen blends in with the living space, creating a beautiful open plan area for maximum use – whether dining, lounging or preparing meals in this stylish area.
Wooden support beams become architectural design elements in this space. Again, kept simple in white, these do not detract one’s attention from the immaculate styling of this room.
