Beautiful Stockholm Apartment Gone Bad

Beautiful Stockholm Apartment Gone Bad

We first saw this beautiful Stockholm apartment when it was for sale in 2007. We were drooling over the beautiful open space, gorgeous lighting, amazing views, and the architectural details. The idea of living in it was like a dream that you never want to wake up from.
We just found out that the new owners and their designers changed it quite a bit and not for the better.

The "new" apartment was featured on a popular Swedish TV Show "Design: Simon & Tomas" and we were very disappointed with the results. The skeleton seems to be intact so maybe we could persuade them to undo what they have done or we can pretend that we never saw the final outcome on emmas designblogg.

The "Old" Apartment:

The "New" Apartment:

From what we can tell on the TV Show's website, the idea was to convert new owners' luxurious, but boring living room to a cozy lounge for cocktail parties and family get-togethers. The purple couch, cannon balls on the wall, copper tubes on the ceiling, blue lights and a light blue ceiling were introduced to connect the interior space with the blue sky and the beautiful view from the apartment. Without any hesitation we vote for the old design. What do you think?
