When I was in Paris I saw apartments with details so breathtaking they would make any American home feel a little plain jane — but I never saw anything quite like this. This apartment, it turns out, isn't in Paris at all: it's located in the Östermalm district of Stockholm. This hasn't kept the homeowners from giving it a distinctly Parisian vibe, mixing old and new in the way the French do so well.

In the dining room, pictured up top, the unusual (but still very subtle) combo of pale pink and light, light grey gives the gorgeous moldings a little extra impact. The mix of old and new styles in the furnishings gives the space a lot of life and energy, and black accents make a wonderful contrast to the barely-there shades on the walls.

In the space above, a vintage Swedish tile stove (or kakelugn) keeps company with an Eero Saarinen tulip table and chairs. The homeowners renovated the apartment when they moved in, but they wanted to stay as close to the space's original style as possible.

Although that dining room is gorgeous, I might be most jealous of the kitchen. Lovely details, lovely light, lovely floors, and a giant wine fridge — what more could you want?

You can see many more photos of the apartment on Metro Mode.
