Together with renowned interior designer Alexandra Ogonowski, Swedish award-winning kitchen brand Nordiska Kök created an elegant kitchen in an opulent flat in central Stockholm. Imagicasa is happy to take you through this project!
The kitchen combines a stripped-down Scandinavian interior tradition with traditional Japanese design. The meeting of these two styles creates a harmony of colours, shapes and materials that creates a beautiful atmosphere. Interior designer Alexandra Ogonowski's trademark is to use powdery warm tones and contrast this with sleek and stylish details that breathe Italian and Danish design. She then added her own personal finds and accessories to soften the expression of the spaces. More than that, taking inspiration from different cultures and interior design traditions gave this project that extra something and a unique feel. The house is located in a turn-of-the-century home, something Ogonowski wanted to reflect in the kitchen design without overpowering it or making it feel too classic. A nice detail is the elegant herringbone parquet, stained in the same shade as the kitchen to create a uniform impression and connect the rooms. The mix between the warm wood, the straight lines and the textured curtains around the large windows of the kitchen create a beautiful elegance that feels both modern and clean.
The combination of oak and limestone takes you on a journey to Japan
The combination of oak and limestone takes you on a journey to Japan and traditional Japanese furnishing, where natural materials and serene beauty are central. Nothing has been left to chance and no superfluous nonsense disturbs the calm and peaceful impression in this kitchen. The cabinets are combined with a warm beige Jura limestone, which is also used to cover the walls between the worktop and the wall units for an extra luxurious look. The plaster of the ceiling and the beautiful parquet then tie everything together and make the kitchen ooze history and elegance. The kitchen also invites cosiness around the cooking island where several people can sit and eat, work or have a glass of wine on the lower level while cooking or baking on the upper level. This kitchen has a very elegant and simple feel to it and exudes a serenity that makes its occupants want to spend a lot of time in it.
