Question: what has the power to singlehandedly transform the look of your kitchen? Answer: Dramatic wallpaper, particularly if it's gorgeous and colorful botanical wallpaper by Josef Frank. More photos below:
Josef Frank— an Austrian-born architect, artist, and designer who fled to Sweden at the age of 50 to escape Nazism— is considered one of Sweden's most important designers. According to Svenskt Tenn, the eminent Swedish design institution for whom Frank started working in 1934, Frank "represented a freer, more artistic style ideal, and he developed his own type of modernism with values such as comfort, hominess and a wealth of colour in focus... He wanted to include nature's colours and forms in interior design and to be able to breathe and feel free even in enclosed rooms."
What do you think of this look? Do you have wallpaper in your kitchen?
P.S. If you absolutely adore this apartment, then brace yourself: it's currently for sale in Sweden.
