With a bright, open floor concept and gorgeous artwork, this Scandinavian style apartment located in Fitzroy North, Australia is making us wish we could jump right into the photos! Interior designer, Silvia Roldan applied her minimalist aesthetic, love for white, and appreciation for beautiful art, and perfectly incorporated her client’s vision for a Scandinavian theme. Also, don’t miss some of Silvia’s invaluable design tips, favorite artists, and discover what her Modern Sanctuary is at the bottom of this feature. Silvia, on the design:
“We started with a brief based on a monochrome Scandinavian theme. My client loves the Scandinavian look and had some key pieces of furniture that she needed help sourcing. After our initial brief and presentation of concept proposals, our monochrome Scandi theme evolved to include amazing colorful abstract art, iconic furniture pieces, a mixture of texture and pattern, but still with just the right amount of monochrome to ground the whole theme together.”
Thoughts from Silvia’s client demonstrate her strong collaboration throughout this project:
“I really loved working with Silvia. She was incredibly enthusiastic about the project from day one! She presented her ideas and concepts in detail, whilst taking into consideration my own ideas. She was patient in my decision making process and ensured all pieces sourced were of the highest quality and have timeless appeal. The Scandinavian look is just perfect and I love being in this space.”

“…Art really does maketh the room. Whether you decide to go for maximum impact and create a gallery wall or prefer something more subtle, art can be the finishing touch or the hero piece in your interior.” Silvia Roldan
The quiet palette of this apartment certainly allows the artwork to take center stage. We would love to hear about how you use artwork and other creative touches to create your own Modern Sanctuary.
